All Lakshya events take place in the great outdoors. The success of these events depend upon various factors which include climatic conditions, governmental / quasi-governmental policies, mechanical and human error in hired vehicles, etc. and despite checks and double checks, there is always a possibility that the event may not see through as planned or advertised. CVA & Jumpstart and it’s representatives do everything in their reasonable capacity to ensure the smooth running of an event and stick to the advertised plan. However, in the situation that an event has to be shortened or cancelled, CVA & Jumpstart would stand liable to refund only the balance amount of the total amount paid after deductions of the actual cost incurred up to the moment.
Some tourist destinations in India charge different and higher fees for foreigners and the same would have to be borne separately by such a participant.

CVA & Jumpstart and its representatives do not subscribe to or encourage the consumption of any Alcoholic and/or Narcotic and Psychotropic substances during an event. Not only does the consumption thereof compromise the safety of the individual and the group physically, but also legally. Any participant who does not adhere to this policy during the event would automatically stop being a part of the event and be asked to make private arrangements for themselves thereon, without receiving any refund whatsoever.
