No enhanced compensation: SC

india Updated: May 04, 2007 13:12 IST

The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed a bunch of petitions which sought enhanced compensation for the victims of the 1984 Bhopal gas tragedy.

A Bench of Justices CK Thakker and Altamas Kabir, however, said if any of the victims was denied proper compensation, he/she can approach the Claims Tribunal for appropriate settlement of claims.

The petitions were filed by various NGO's and individuals who sought a nearly five-fold increase in the $470 million compensation.

The petitioners had claimed that the $470 million compensation was inadequate and several victims could not receive the amount till date.
