I guess it is a simple interest.

It is simple interest @ 8% p.a. For 5 yrs you should get about 12,00,000/- int. on 30,00,000/- award, depending upon the date of filing and date of deposit.

Ur very lucky the Tribunal awarded you 8% interest.The Hon'ble Supreme Court has now lowered the rate to 6%. For claculating the rate u need not worry the Insurance Co will calculate and deposit the money in the court.
