The district administration today suspended the licence of an immigration company, M/s Victoria Guidelines (OPC) Private Limited, for 90 days after a complaint was received by the authorities concerned against the company. The firm, which has its office in Phase 11 here, has a licence till October 30, 2023.

Additional District Magistrate (ADM) Amaninder Kaur Brar said on the basis of a complaint, a letter was sent to the firm’s official address to provide information about the clients as well as the fee charged from them. But there was no response, following which a notice was issued under the Punjab Travel Professionals Regulation Act, 2012, directing the company officials to appear before the court with a clarification. But no one appeared before the court. She said the Deputy Superintended of Police (Urban-2) had informed through a letter that the firm had cheated a complainant on the pretext of sending him abroad.

Brar said despite the notice issued to the immigration company, neither the proprietor nor any of his representatives were present at her office due to which the licence of the said firm had been suspended for 90 days with immediate effect. She said the licensee had also been directed to stop work under this licence.
