And Rs.2500/- extra for funeral expenses u/s 4(4) by amendment of 2006

2. In case of Permanant Total Disablement:Sec 4(1)(b) - 60% of monthly wages or an amount of 1, 40,000/- whichever is more

Under Workmen's Compensation Act, compensation is calculated as follows:
1. For accidents resulting in death, an amount equal to fifty per cent of the monthly wages of the deceased workman multiplied by the relevant factor (based on the age of employee); or an amount of one lakh twenty thousand rupees, whichever is more
2. For permanent total disablement, an amount equal to sixty per cent of the monthly wages of the injured workman multiplied by the relevant factor, or an amount of one lakh forty thousand rupees, whichever is more.

Maximum wages for the purpose of calculation of compensation is fixed at Rs 8000. Therefore, 50%/ 60%, as the case may be the salary at the time of accident or death subject to a maximum of 8000 shall be multiplied by the relevant factor given below to calculate compensation.
