Consumer protection in karnataka

Hi Experts,

I have placed an order for a sofa set and a dining table with a furniture store in one of the districts of Karnataka state.

Total cost is 1,00,000/ - and to begin the work the store guy has already collected 50% of payment from me as advance.

It has been two months since 50% payment, till date, I have not received any updates from the store whatsoever. My calls are not answered and dealer keeps dodging me with various excuses.

Store has not given my any receipt towards my payment, however, i have all the bank transactions deatils as it was an online transaction.

How can I go about in cancelling my order and taking full refund of what I have already paid and am I eligible to claim damages?

Kindly guide - thanks in advance.

Urgent help-misselling insurance to 80+ yr old

Little lengthy - but its urgent- kindly guide me.

BRIEF NOTE BEFORE DETAILS: Main reason for posting here is because someone from the Ombudsman office (Assistance Secretary to Ombudsman (A.S.O), who was with the judge in the hearings) has been calling me several times asking me (literally threatening) to withdraw the cases and settle with a compromise with the Insurance company (the terms of which he will speak to company and arrange) or else I will not receive any refund and cases will be reversed. Inspite of that I went ahead with the hearings based on someone's suggestion.

BACKGROUND
My father is 80+ and suffering from Alzheimer's/dementia. He receives a pension of 25K per month. Prior to the diagnosis of his disease, he fell victim to mis-selling of 13 insurance policies by 2 agents in just 2 yrs time - total premium around 25Lac p.a for 5 - 6 years. From what the doctor told and from learning more about Alzheimer's, it is clear that he had serious memory decline already at that time and was not in a position to handle financial decisions. The agents have misguided him heavily as he was not in a position to oppose when they were dumping policies to him. My parents were staying in different location at that time and I was not aware of any of his finance etc.

They are all life insurance policies given in the names of me, my sister, my mother and my daughter. In some cases agents have filled wrong salary and rental income details in the proposal form for myself and my sister whereas both are home-makers and have no personal income. I was not aware that so many policies were given and secondly my father had told they were like FD to avoid tax from some maturity amount he received so I thought it was only one time investment. After 2 years,( in 2019-2020) the policies started lapsing and by this time my father had total memory loss and is not in a position to even remember anything. I got to know all this when I started receiving several calls on my fathers mobile for premium payment. After a lot of research I understood that the agents had sold policies knowing somehow about his maturity money and must have definitely known that he cannot pay more that 2 yrs premium.

First I raised complaint with the companies. Some 5 polices have been cancelled and refunded by the company itself, these are lower value polices < 1 lac per annum.

For the others where the company refused to cancel and refund, I had raised complaint earlier this year with the local Insurance Ombudsman and the Policies have now started to come up for hearing with ombudsman, on different dates.
1) In the first case, policy is in the name of my daughter with my father as proposer. Ombudsman asked to refund the amount due to some technical mistake in selling- grandfather to grand daughter
2) Second policy, in my mother's name (she is the proposer and life assured, currently 69yr old) In this 3 premiums totally 2.4 lacs have been paid. The judge said since my fathers name is not involved in this, he cannot treat this policy like the first one. He has ordered the company to make it a single premium policy.
3) In the third policy, my sister is the proposer and life assured. Premium around 2.5Lacs Half yearly and 3 premiums have been paid. My sister is uneducated and no personal income. The judge questioned the company how they could give policy to someone with no capacity to pay premium - sum assured is 50Lacs. They have given them 2 days time to contact the broker company and come up with the explanation. I am waiting for the ombudsman decision.

My queries:
1. In the case where policy is converted to single premium, will the insurance company deduct some amount as administration charges etc or is the full amount taken for premium.
(The ombudsman did not mention about any deduction but the A.S.O who called me again after hearing said there will be deduction.)
2. Given the heavy mis-selling, should the judge not order for refund all amount even if it is in the name of my sister or myself. He said he would not treat all cases same as they are in different names.
3. The policy in my name is nearly 7 Lac per annum premium. And 2 yrs premium paid. The A.S.O has warned me again for this that if I go for hearing, the ombudsman will reject my case as I am educated. So he said he will talk to company and settle something and I should withdraw with compromise. Is he guiding me correctly?
