Cheating by Big Bazaar

I have been trying for months to get a refund from Big Bazaar after participating in their scheme as highlighted in the 1st photo. The scheme is known as "Profit Club" wherein you deposit 10000 and you get 12000 worth of shopping cash from Big Bazaar to shop within a year. It is nothing but a scheme for taking unaccounted deposits from the public and when the person forgets big bazaar deems it expired which they can't do as they are not an NBFC and not at all allowed to take such deposits.
We have been taken for a ride since the past three months. Earlier we were informed that our previous deposit of last financial year was expired and that we'll have to make another deposit to activate the card.

After consulting with a few CA associates I was informed that this practice cannot be done and they have to refund the earlier money.

After running pillar to post in their stores there has been no response or respite.

I think I may not be the only person who has been taken for a ride by the Big Bazaar management. People may have lost 1000 or 500. But Big Bazaar has been gaining a lot by duping innocent customers. more

Do'nt be greedy more  
The Big shops offer big and cheat big. When there is no provision and they are not an NBFC and not at all allowed to take such deposits, how come the government or consumer affairs Ministry is not aware of this ??? If so what action has been initiated. more  
I have been using this scheme for the last two years. It is very clean and transparent scheme. You pay 10K and shop for 1K every moth for 12 months. The unutilized balance is carried forward and can be utilized till 18th month. Not only that, in between, they add surprise cash 400/500, which is valid only for the month. You can utilize it only after spending the applicable balance till that month. Otherwise, it gets expired. It is over and above 1K monthly balance.
Where is the fraud, and why this noise, I fail to understand. more
