N.KANNADASAN, J. -
(1.) The above appeal is filed against the order passed by the District
Forum Kanyakumari, wherein a direction is issued to the effect that the
wife of the deceased / 2nd opposite party / Appellant herein is entitled
to receive a sum of Rs.70000/-, and the Complainant / 1st Respondent
herein who is the mother of the deceased Velayutham is entitled to
receive a sum of Rs.30000/- out of the Group Insurance Scheme.
(2.) The deceased Velayutham is member and subscriber of the Group
Insurance Scheme, arranged and entered into between the 1st and 3rd
opposite party. Consequent to the death of the above said Velayutham, in
the course of the disbursement of the amount, the dispute arose with
regard to the apportionment of the said amount. The 3rd opposite party
viz. the LIC of India, was not in a position to disburse the amount for
want of Advance Payment Receipt from the legal heirs of the deceased
Velayutham. The mother of the deceased has preferred the complaint before
the District Forum for the payment of the amount as per the provisions of
the Hindu Succession Act. The said complaint was resisted by the 2nd
opposite party, viz. the wife of the deceased by placing reliance upon
the Government Order to the effect that she alone is entitled for the
entire amount. The District Forum, after hearing the parties and on
perusal of records has passed an order to the effect that the complainant
/ 1st Respondent herein is entitled for a sum of Rs.30000/- and the 2nd
opposite party / Appellant viz. the wife of the deceased is entitled for
a sum of Rs.70000/-.
(3.) Aggrieved by the said order, the present appeal is filed.;
