New Delhi, 22 September
An apex consumer forum today observed that failing to get a government job with a degree issued by a recognised college or university does not amount to deficiency on part of the concerned educational institution, warranting refund of fee.
The National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission (NCDRC) made this observation while dismissing the petition of a man seeking refund of fee and compensation from an educational institution alleging that the marksheet issued by it to his son was of no use in getting a job.
The NCDRC bench of justices Ajit Bharihoke and Suresh Chandra observed that since the course for which the college had given admission to the son of the petitioner is a recognised course, no fault could be found with the impugned order.
“Simply because the petitioner is unable to secure a job on the basis of the degree obtained by him cannot be a ground for alleging deficiency in service on the part of the respondent college,” the NCDRC said.
