SummaryOn World Disability Day, there is something to cheer for 18-year-old Rahul Rajendra Savardekar, a student, as the Motor Accident Claims Tribunal (MACT) has granted Rs 5.94 lakh compensation to him — about Rs 2.5 lakh more than what he had asked for, considering the gravity of injuries suffered by him.

20,000 on account of his suffering. The court said that as Rahul will not be able to do physically strenuous work, he will suffer loss of future income. The court calculated Rs 3.24 lakh on account of loss of future loss of income. The cumulative amount comes to Rs 5,94,000.

The court directed the owner of the truck and the insurance company to pay the amount at no interest rate from 2008 till realisation, of which Rs 1.80 lakh is to be paid by account payee cheque and the rest to be invested under fixed deposit.
