Over Rs. 92 lakh has been awarded as compensation by a motor accident claims tribunal (MACT) to family members of nine persons killed in a road accident in August last year.


The tribunal directed National Insurance Co. Ltd, with which the offending vehicle was insured, to pay Rs. 92,29,782 to the family members of nine persons who died and to three others who were injured in the accident.

The victims were travelling in a SUV which had collided with the rashly driven truck.

“The claimants have demonstrated and explained the details of accident and also examined one eye-witness to the incident in support of their claim. They also produced certified copy of FIR along with other relevant documents.

“On the other hand, no evidence whatsoever has been adduced by either of respondents (driver, owner of truck and insurance firm) to rebut the evidence adduced by respective petitioners (victims),” MACT Presiding Officer Vineeta Goyal said.

According to the families, the accident took place on the afternoon of August 20 last year.
