Farmers would be considered as skilled workers and insurance companies cannot reduce the compensation under the Motor Vehicle (MV) Act on the ground their work required no formal education, a Delhi court has said.

“Though each farmer of this country may not be educationally qualified as yet and it may yet be a dream, but that does not mean he is not skilled for tilling his fields,” the court said.
