S. SIRI JAGAN, J.W.P.(C)NO.6959 OF 2006
DATED THIS THE 7th DAY OF JUNE, 2007
The petitioner, a widow, obtained an award for payment of compensation for the death of her husband, who died in a motor accident. The award amount has been directed to be deposited in a bank. The petitioner submits that she conducted her daughter's marriage by borrowing money from her relatives and those persons advanced money to her on the strength of the award obtained by her. The petitioner has no other means to pay off the debts. Therefore, she seeks a direction to the Motor Accident Claims Tribunal, Kollam to disburse the entire amount lying in deposit pursuant to the award. Taking into account the facts and circumstances of the case, I direct the Motor Accident Claims Tribunal, Kollam to disburse the entire amount due as per the award to the petitioner without insisting on deposit as directed in the award. The writ petition is disposed of as above.
