SC: Blind Law- Workman will not get interest from date of accident, will get from date of judgement only…


This is about workmen who suffers accident when on work. Employer is liable to pay Compensation with 6% interest.

SC says this interest is NOT to be payed from Date of Accident, but only from the Date of Judgement.

It means, if employer can delay the case of workman, he will have to pay LESS interest!
