It also compensated Singh for expenses incurred for an attendant and for buying a wheelchair.

In its recent order, the tribunal noted however that the disability suffered by Singh cannot be treated as functional disability, as he can do all his professional work while sitting.

It granted Singh Rs 3 lakh towards loss of future earning noting that his permanent disability may lead to certain difficulties at the time of his retirement.
