To put a check on activities of immigration, emigration and student visa companies, the district magistrate on Friday issued orders, making it mandatory for such companies to provide complete antecedents in writing to the Chandigarh police.
Currently, several immigration, emigration and student visa companies are running their offices in Chandigarh. Since there is no need of license for consultancy of students visa, such people start providing consultancy to the people by getting published advertisements in leading newspapers and flee from city after duping people of Punjab, Haryana and Himachal Pradesh.
In an order issued under Section 144 of the CrPc, district magistrate Vivek Pratap Singh has directed owners of such companies to provide complete antecedents in writing to the Chandigarh Police at Public Window, Police Headquarters, Sector 9, within seven days as and when they start their consultancy business in the city. The order will come into force with effect from zero hours on June 20 and will be effective for a period of 60 days up to and including August 18.
