Railways told to pay compensation for delay

A Bench headed by Anupam Dasgupta rejected the revision petition filed by the South Western Railway against the judgment of the Karnataka State Consumer Commission which had directed it to pay compensation of Rs 2,000 to Balasaheb Bangi from Karnataka.

Bangi told the consumer commission that he travelled from Bangalore to Hubli on October 20, 2009, by train which halted at Kadur station for two hours. He informed that no one from the Railways clarified why the train had stopped and he reached Hubli past midnight.

"It was drizzling and also chilly because of which he fell sick the next day and his return journey had to be postponed," the counsel for Bangi told the NCRDC.
