Advance not being returned

Hi Friends, 

I am from Bhopal. Please help me in recovering my money.

I had initiated talks with a civil contractor for construction of house. He gave me an offer in the name of his proprietory firm and demanded advance. I paid him a sum of Rs. 51,000/- by cheque in his personal name, this was probably my mistake.

He promised me to come next day to enter into an agreement for construction. That NEXT DAY never came. Now he is not returning my money. 

What options do I have to recover my money.

You have two options either file a suit for recovery of amount paid as advance or file a complaint before consumer forum against contractor alleging that he had taken money for constructing   house but now denied to provide his services.


I am of the opinion, case with consumer forum can help you more in expediting the case.
