(2.) The appellant has challenged the impugned Judgment & Order dated 15.07.2016, issued by the MACT, Lunglei in MAC Case No. 3/2014, by which the appellant's claim for payment of cost of repair of his Gypsy has been dismissed, on the ground that the learned Tribunal did not have the jurisdiction to entertain a claim for damages caused to a motor vehicle.
(3.) The appellant's counsel submits that the learned Tribunal erred in dismissing the appellant's claim for compensation for damages caused to his Gypsy due to an accident involving the appellant's Gypsy and the 207 Truck belonging to the respondent No. 1. He submits that the learned Tribunal had wrongly interpreted section 141 & 147 of the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988 and held that the learned Tribunal did not have the jurisdiction to entertain the claim of the appellant.;
