I am shocked but please confirm if only Rs.2.5 lacs would be refunded according to principles of equity?
I quote from the email from a director on 15 Mar 2017.
I feel bad that you have decided not to re consider your decision.
At the outset let me thank you for helping us at the crucial stage.
Further to our discussion I confirm the following:
(1) As per our understanding and the agreement during our meeting we will refund Rs.15,25,000 to your account with Citibank. Subsequent to your notice, we have started searching for a suitable tenant for D30. We need a minimum of 60 days to locate an alternative tenant and refund your amount.
As per your request, I am trying my best to arrange some advance payment.
(2) The non-refundable position of Rs.50,000 can be adjusted against the Room rent at the rate of Rs.500 per day of your stay. We will extend A/c room for this rate.
For the current usage we will adjust agains the above credit and will send you the balance statement. You may use the balance as and when you stay at our facility.
His claim "We need a minimum of 60 days to locate an alternative tenant and refund your amount." is not true.
Ar the meeting, I specifically asked him what would be sitiuation if they can not find someone else within 60 days.
His reply was, "we will then give your the money"!
I do appreciate that there are words only, and I can not proove that he said so.
However, he did state in writing, "As per our understanding and the agreement during our meeting we will refund Rs.15,25,000".
Can I use this as basis for legal action?
