United India Insurance Company Ltd. Petitioner
Sardar Baljit Singh Respondent

For the Petitioner : Mr. Atul Nanda, Advocate
For the Respondent : Mr. Baljit Singh, In person
At the outset, we would say that procedure adopted by the State Commission in not issuing notice to the petitioner before modifying the order passed by the District Forum and enhancing the compensation is totally unjustified. Without hearing the petitioner, adverse order against it could not have been passed.
However, to avoid remand, we direct the Insurance Company to produce the Survey Report on record. It would be open to the complainant to file his reply.
