Prima facie on the issue of negligence upon well considered findings on the basis of appreciation of material on record, I am not inclined to accept the submissions that the Tribunal erred in attributing 50% negligence to the deceased. But at the same time application of multiplier of 12 to the deceased aged 37 years appears to be unreasonable and contrary to the decision of the Apex Court in the case of Sarla Verms (Smt) and Ors. v. Delhi Transport Corporation and Anr. [(2009) 6 SCC 121].
To be heard finally on 19.7.2012.
