Whereas it has been made to appear to me that some Immigration/Emigration/Student Visa Companies are running their offices in U.T., Chandigarh. Since there is no need of license for consultancy of student visa, they also start providing of Immigration/Emigration consultancy to the people. They get published advertisements 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.
