The Voice of Chandigarh News
It has been brought to my notice that some Immigration/Emigration/Student Visa Companies are running their offices in U.T., Chandigarh. Since there is no need for a license for consultancy of the student visa, they also start providing Immigration/Emigrationconsultancy to the people. They get their advertisements published in leading newspapers and dupe the innocent people of Punjab, Haryana and Himachal Pradesh and after 2/3 months, they close their offices and run away from the city. The unlawful activities of these companies can cause endanger to the general public.
And whereas I, Mandip Singh Brar, I.A.S., District Magistrate, Chandigarh, am of the opinion that some check is necessary on these companies so that they may not cause harm to the citizens and that immediate action is warranted in this regard.
Now, therefore, I, Mandip Singh Brar, I.A.S., District Magistrate, Chandigarh in the exercise of the power vested in me u/s 144 of the Cr.P.C., do hereby order as an emergency measure that before establishing such companies, it is mandatory for the owner of the company to provide complete antecedents in writing to the local Police Station and at Public Window, Police Headquarter, Sector 9, Chandigarh, within 7 days as and when they start their business in the city.
It is further, ordered that the immigration companies will mention their registration number in the Performa Point 2 (ii) while providing information to the Chandigarh Police Public Window Police Headquarter, Sector 9, Chandigarh, as well as in advertisements given by the immigration companies.
In view of the emergent nature of the order, it is being issued ex-parte and is addressed to the public in general. Any breach of this order would invite action under section 188 of the Indian Penal Code.
This order shall come into force with effect from zero hours on 20.07.2021 and shall be effective for a period of sixty days up to and including 17.09.2021.
