It is over once for all. Since the employer, as a dealer, was the owner of the insured demo vehicle his employee was compensated under the MV Act. Section 167 of the M.V Act,1988 permits the option of claim for compensation for death or bodily injury only either under the EC Act,1923 or the M.V Act,1988 but not under both.

i am asking for the further opinion as claim under MVACT was negligble as compared to work man compensation act.Employer cunningly persuaded the employee to get compensation under MVACT despite the fact that accident happened with in the permises and absolutely liable for compensation.
He has got disability and entitled for more compensation as he is not able to stand straight and being gun man he is no more fit.He was getting salary @ 15000/- and was covered under both act ie ESIC and EPF Act but employer failed to comply with the act and had not enrolled as member under the ACTS.
I am looking for the way by which he can get compensation under WC Act.He is ready to pay back the compensation received ubder MACT Act.Is there any provision under this act.
