C.M.No.6817-CII of 2004
This is an application under Section 5 of the Limitation Act for condoning the delay of 304 days in filing the appeal.
Counsel for the appellant contends that the appeal was not filed earlier as the appellant's father was working as Superintendent with the Railways and, therefore, he had a fear that in case any such appeal was filed, the services of his father were likely to be affected. The other contention raised by the learned Counsel for the petitioner is that the appellant on coming to know that the compensation has to be paid by the United India Assurance Co., has filed the present appeal with an application for condonation of delay. Nothing has been mentioned as to what was the source of his information, as to when he got this information and what was the basis thereof. It was FAO No.1839 of 2004 (O&M)
also not disclosed as to when he had received the compensation which was granted to him by the Tribunal. The application is totally vague and it does not disclose any reasonable explanation muchless any ground for condonation of delay. Accordingly, this application is dismissed.
Consequently, the appeal is also dismissed being time barred.
