Under Section 173 in The Motor Vehicles Act, 1988

Any person aggrieved by an award of a Claims Tribunal may, within ninety days from the date of the award, prefer an appeal to the High Court, however, no appeal shall lie against any award of a Claims Tribunal if the amount in dispute in the appeal is less than ten thousand rupees.

I hope this answers your question.

Have a good day!

You must prefer an Appeal for enhacement of the Compensation amount before the Concerned High Court.
