A.A.DESAI, P.C.VERMA, JJ. -
(1.)HEARD Sri Manoj Tewari, learned counsel for the appellant at length.
(2.)THE deceased at the time of the accident was aged about 45 years. The Tribunal estimated his monthly income at Rs. 1,800 and awarded compensation of Rs. 2,16,000. We do not see any reason that the amount as awarded is exorbitant.
Sri Manoj Tewari, learned counsel for the appellant, further urged that the driver of the vehicle insured with the appellant was not holding any driving licence. As such, the appellant company could not be saddled with the responsibility of compensation. We are not impressed by the ground as raised. However, the insurance company can prosecute against the owner of the vehicle in accordance with law for the liability saddled on the appellant.
(3.)THE appeal is dismissed with the aforesaid observation.
