This is a case of permanent partial disablement. The amount of compensation awarded would be based on the loss of earning capacity of the worker. It can be any percentage of the total earning capacity of the worker. If, say, he has lost 20% of his earning capacity then he can be gainfully employed for the remaining 80%. Therefore, he can be employed in such activity which can make him earn that 80% of the earnings that he was earning before the accident.
