Broker not refunding my token amount
I am a student who came to delhi for preparation.
I gave a token amount of 5000 to landlord to secure my new rental flat. after a few days signed rental agreement and paid remaining amount of 25000rs to the broker. total amount = 30,000 (1month rent + 1 month security).
But i could never move in to the flat bcz of urgent sudden family circumstances. i had to quit any plan of shifting to delhi and move back to my hometown.
i explained to the broker everything so he said that no problem your money will be refunded totally bcz we have no right to keep it since you are not moving in (i have call recordings and whatsapp messages as proof)
he initially took 1and half months to make first refund amount of 10,000 then after saying so much he again refunded 10,000 (he kept saying everytime that he doesn’t have money etc etc excuses) and after 2 months i have only received 25000 refund. He is still delaying 5000 remaining amount by saying today he’ll transfer and still he is not sending my money.
i am mentally stressed out for past 2+ months about what i will explain to my family. i come from middle class family i dont know what to do. i feel i have been extremely mentally harassed. i have been requesting for my own money to be given to me. Typing on this forum is my last resort. someone please help me i am feeling helpless. please help. am i supposed to do anything legally ? but i’m scared that no police will help me out and i dont have so much to fight court case i suppose.
