                                        JUDGMENT

Ramachandran Nair, J.

Heard counsel for the appellant and counsel appearing for the third

respondent. On going through the impugned judgment, we feel some

modification is required with regard to the compensation awarded for the

period appellant was out of employment. Even though MACT accepted

appellant’s monthly earning at Rs.3,101/-, the compensation given for loss

of employment is only Rs.20,000/- for eight months. The appellant was

admittedly in the hospital for 15 days and thereafter he was on leave for 10

months. We, therefore, increase the compensation payable for loss of

employment from Rs.20,000/- to rupees thirty thousand. The appeal is

disposed of modifying the impugned award to the above extent, but

confirming the same on all other respects. Interest at the rate awarded by

MACT will be payable on this amount also.
