How to recover money from salesman who has cheated me

I got a car audio system for my new car last week. I got an amplifier for the system for 13000rs from a shop in Kochi. The sales man convinced me that the amplifier needs a converter which costs 7000rs to connect fhe inputs and there is no way around, despite me asking him several times if he is sure because i have heard somewhere that some amplifiers doesnt need one. And finally i paid for all the stuff and got it installed. Later i found out that the amplifier already had an inbuilt converter and the converter I bought was not at all necessary. I feel cheated. I am thinking about going to the shop and talk to them nicely to take their product back and refund my money. Do i have the right to demand it? Or is there any legal scope for me to sue them?

Dear Client,
Talk to the person who had sold you this device , in a cool manner and request him to refund the amounts even if he discounts some amounts, for the sake of avoiding litigation.
If he is not coming in tune, just file a complaint before the Consumer disputes Redressal Forum, katrikadavum Ernakulam, accusing him for unfair trade practice, loss of amounts, mental agony along with litigation expenses. I think it will be better to entrust the matter to a Consumer Lawyer, since it will be helpful to you.
Do not forget to collect the guarantee card of the items you purchased to avoid further problem.
