Insurance: Kin of Road Accident Victim To Get over Rs17 Lakh Compensation
MACT (Motor Accident Claims Tribunal) presiding officer  KS Mohi directed United India Insurance Company Ltd, insurer of the car involved in an accident, to pay a compensation of Rs17,31,000 to the wife and two sons of victim Bhim Sen Arora who was riding a scooter when he was hit by a car in 2013.
 
While awarding the compensation, the Tribunal relied on the statement of Mr Arora’s wife and noted that the criminal case against the car driver was pending. “It is a DAR (detailed accident report) case and all the documents placed on record along with the DAR are sufficient to prove that due to the negligent act of driver of the offending vehicle, the accident occurred which resulted in death of Bhim Sen Arora,” it said.
 
According to the petition filed by victim’s wife, on 2 September 2013, Mr Arora was going towards his residence when a rashly driven SUV hit him from behind due to which he suffered grievous injuries. He was taken to AIIMS Trauma Centre where he underwent treatment but succumbed to injuries five days later.
 
During the proceedings, the driver, owner and insurer of the car neither gave any evidence nor filed any written statement. The insurance company had, however, made a legal offer to the petitioner which was rejected by her.

Consumer Issues: Maharashtra Reduces Service Charge on Online Tickets
Maharashtra government has reduced the service charge on tickets purchased online. The service charge per ticket will be capped at Rs10, an official release said. The decision applies to sale of online tickets including those for films, amusement parks, water parks, cricket ODIs and IPL matches, among others.
 
Last year, Maharashtra government had issued notices to movie theatres asking them to stop charging extra for tickets sold online, a move that was challenged in the court by the aggrieved cinema hall owners. The notice covered tickets booked through websites. The so-called service, convenience or Internet-handling, charge depends on the price of the tickets. It’s usually Rs10 for a ticket costing up to Rs100, rising to Rs20 for a Rs100-Rs200-ticket and so on.
