Compensation takes the form of monetary payment for which the employer is liable and is paid in respect of one or more of the following heads:
- Temporary incapacity
- Permanent incapacity
- Injury to health
Assessed by the Labour Officer to whom the accident was reported.
The amount is normally the periodical payment of not less than half of the workmen’s basic wage at the time of the accident covering the period of temporary disablement as certified by the doctor treating the injured workmen subject to a maximum of 96 months
These periodical payments cease to be payable as soon as final award of permanent disability (if any) has been made.
