Preamble

Accidents are unfortunate incidents, occurrences of which cannot be obliterated completely, but can only be minimized by adopting most vigilant practices, safety precautions etc. Sometimes accidents do happen when responsibility and liability cannot be affixed on certain individuals or malfunctioning of certain machinery and the Law recognizes the Principle of 'No faulty Liability' for such unfortunate incidents. In such cases, the loss of life and loss of dependency cost of the dependents of such victims cannot be written off merely on the pretext that negligence on the part of Department or its agencies cannot be substantiated for want of stricter proofs particularly in a welfare state like ours.
