[Civil Appeal No. 5447 of 2016 @ Special Leave Petition (C) No. 13965 of 2013]

KURIAN, J.

1. Leave granted.

2. Having regard to the nature of work, for which the respondents- workmen were engaged and having regard to the submission that the project is already over, we are of the view that the interest of justice would be met if a lumpsum compensation is awarded to the workmen.

3. Therefore, in full and final settlement of all the claims available to the respondents-workmen in respect of their daily waged engagement under the appellant, the respondents-workmen shall be paid compensation to the tune of Rs. 3,00,000/- (Rupees Three Lakhs) each.

4. We make it clear that in case, the appellant-BSNL engages any fresh daily wagers, the respondents-workmen shall be given preference.

5. The compensation shall be paid within six weeks from today.

6. With the above observations and directions, the appeals are disposed of.

No costs.
