Insurance only if victim wears ISI-helmet: Karnataka HC

Bengaluru, DH News Service, Jan 10 2018, 1:39 IST

The Karnataka High Court has ordered that insurance companies should not compensate accident victims not wearing ISI helmets.

Justice L Narayanaswamy passed the order on an appeal by the Oriental Insurance Company challenging an order by a court in Madhugiri directing the company to compensate accident victims.

The high court held that motorists should wear helmets as prescribed under rule 230 of the Karnataka Motor Vehicles Rules. The court stated that a helmet should have ISI number (IS 4151:1993) mentioned on it.

Besides, the helmet should also contain the manufacture's name, year of manufacturing and size which should also be easy to read, the order stated.

A principal civil judge in Madhugiri in Pavagada taluk had directed the insurance company to pay a compensation of Rs 2.58 lakh to two persons who met with an accident in May 2014.

The insurance company had challenged the order and filed an appeal.
