In the matter of The Oriental Insurance Company Ltd. Vs. Siby George & Ors., the Supreme Court has held that an employer becomes liable to pay compensation as soon as the personal injury is caused to the workmen by the accident which arose out of and in the course of employment. Thus, the relevant date for determination of the rate of compensation is the date of the accident and not the date of adjudication of the claim.
