IA asked to pay compensation

Our Bureau

BANGALORE: Indian Airlines has been asked to pay damages of Rs 8,800 to a passenger who hurt himself and got his pants torn during a flight to Delhi in 1998. The petitioner, Mr A.G.Ashok, had pressed for a compensation of Rs 5 lakh.

The Bangalore Urban District Consumer Disputes Redressal Forum issued the directive while ruling that the case amounts to deficient service. The consumer court divided the sum as Rs 5,000 for the pain and humiliation, Rs 2,800 as costs for the damage and Rs 1,000 towards court proceedings. IA has four weeks to pay up the amount.
