As held in the judgment of the Supreme Court in National Ins.Co. v/s Cholleti Bharatamma(2007 Scale(12)560)-in para 17 that"It is now well settled that the owner of the goods means only the person who travels in the cabin of the vehicle." How it has been well settled, as stated. Is the point earlier decided in some other case or discussed elsewhere,because there are no wording in S.147 of the Act or any rules or policy document that mentions of owner to be sitting in cabin only? kindly give your opinion on the point and help come to a conclusion.
