Chandigarh, May 2
The Motor Accident Claims Tribunal (MACT), Chandigarh, has directed an insurance company to release Rs26 lakh compensation to parents of a youth who died in a road accident in 2018.
The claimants had sought compensation from the driver and owner of the vehicle which was allegedly involved in the accident and the insurance company on account of death of Ravi Kumar.
Kumar had died in a road accident on November 6, 2018. The petition was filed by Kumar’s mother Chitrawati, father Jhandu Lal and his sisters Neetu and Jyoti.
The tribunal while disposing of the petition said the insurance company was ready to settle the present claim petition for the sum of Rs26 lakh as full and final settlement.
The counsel for the claimants testified the settlement and said the claimants were ready to accept the compensation amount offered by the insurance Company.
In view of the settlement, the tribunal ordered to give the compensation to the parents as they are the only first class legal heirs of the deceased, Ravi Kumar, who was unmarried.
The tribunal further said the compensation amount should be paid to claimants in equal shares.
The insurance company shall pay up the amount within 45 days failing which the claimants shall be entitled to recover the amount, along with interest at 6 per cent per annum, from the date of institution of the present petition till realisation of the amount, the tribunal added.
