Refund of advance payment


I have paid an advance for booking of a goods/service on hire to be utilised on a particular day after two months. But in the meanwhile the event was cancelled and I didnot want that service any more. I asked the vendor to cancell the order and refund my advance amount paid to him.

He refused to return the advance payment on the plea that the service once booked cannot be cancelled. He has also printed this on his Order Book.

I want to know the following:

a. Am I a consumer?

b. Is this a consumer dispute?

c. Can I get the refund under the Consumers Protection Act 1986?

d. can I ask for the interest, cost and compensations for mental agony, harrassment etc.?

You have not indicated whether u had an agreement in writing with service provider or it was just an oral agreement / promise. If it is in writing, definitely it would be covered  under the definition of ' service' and u can get remedy... if not in writing it would be difficult to prove in the forum.

Please find attached a Notice  sent to the Vendor, which is self explict.

Now I wonder if I fit in the defibation of a "Consumer". I want to be sure before I file the complaint with the Cobsumer Xomplaint Redressal Forum
