For Death Of Polling Officers due to Covid, the Compensation must be minimum 1 Crore

The Allahabad High Court observed that the amount paid as compensation is very leass, and the family of the deceased must be given a minimum of 1 crore as compensation.

The Court further added that it is not the case where sombody is voluntarily rendering his service during elections, but it is the case where these polling duties are made mandatory and obligatory to those who were assigned with election duties despite they showed reluctance.

The Court said that to compensate the death of the bread earner of a family and that too only because of the deliberate move of the State to pressurize them to perform their duty in the absence of RTPCR support. The compensation for the same must be at least rupees 1,00,00,000.
