Ludhiana: Now lodge complaints of cheating, fraud against travel agents at DBEE
Tightening the noose around the travel agents duping innocent people on the pretext of sending them abroad, the state has made the District Bureau of Employment and Enterprises (DBEE) the nodal agency to register complaints against such frauds.
Divulging further details, Ranjit Kaur, employment generation officer, said that DBEE has been designated as a nodal agency to deal with the complaints and ensure speedy action against the erring travel agents.
She said that as soon as a cheating case gets registered against any travel agent, the copy of the FIR would be uploaded on the Ludhiana district administration’s website: www.Ludhiana.nic.in.
“The DBEE has been made the nodal agency by the state government under the Punjab Prevention of Human Smuggling Act 2012/Punjab Travel Professional Regulation Act 2014 to register complaints against fraud related to foreign travel, foreign studies, and employment,” she said.
A victim can submit a written complaint with the DBEE Office, Partap Chowk, Ludhiana, on any working day from 9 am to 5 pm. The complainant will have to carry along his identity card.
“If any travel agent, working without a license or with an expired license or without registration, comes to our notice, an FIR will be registered against the accused at the police commissionerate,” she added.
