The Gauhati High Court recently observed that terming a deceased housewife a ‘skilled worker,’ while deciding a motor accident claim, does not do justice to her multifarious role in managing the house, reports Bar and Bench. Justice Malasri Nandi was hearing an appeal filed by the minor daughters and widowed mother of the deceased against Motor Accident Claims Tribunal order which had awarded ₹4,25,000 as compensation.
