16th May, 2024


Petitioner: Smt. Praveen Prakash

Respondent: National Insurance Co. Ltd.


Justice Vivek Agarwal


The respondents’ counsel failed to appear on May 7, 2024. The court imposed a Rs. 25,000/- cost: Rs. 5,000/- to Shri Rajesh Nema for expenses and Rs. 20,000/- to the High Court Legal Services Committee. The case is adjourned to May 29, 2024, with warnings of ex parte proceedings for non-cooperation.


Due to the non-cooperation, the court decided to impose a cost of Rs. 25,000/- as a consequence.


The court specified that Rs. 5,000/- of the imposed cost would be paid to Shri Rajesh Nema for commutation expenses and Rs. 20,000/- would be deposited in the High Court Legal Services Committee. Further, the court ordered that the cost be recovered from the erring official responsible for the non-cooperation.


The case was adjourned to May 29, 2024 and it was made clear that if the respondents fail to appear and cooperate at the next hearing, it will proceed ex parte against them.
