No additional compensation for Bhopal gas tragedy : SC

The Supreme Court on decline the Central government’s plea seeking additional compensation of Rs 7.4K crore for the Bhopal gas tragedy victims.

A five-judge bench headed by Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul said the Centre’s plea is not maintainable in law and it also lacked merits on the facts of this case.

The bench said the Centre’s claim for a top up on compensation for the Bhopal gas tragedy victims has no foundation and added that either settlement is valid or set aside where it is vitiated by fraud.
