a new truck/trolla was stolen. The FIR was lodged.The truck/trolla of the respondents was of 2001 Model. Its value as per the insurance policy for the period from 31.5.2003 to 30.5.2004 was Rs. 7 lacs. The theft had taken place on the night of 9.2.2004 i.e. after the expiry of about 8 months from the starting date of the insurance policy. Therefore, depreciation @10% would be justified. Therefore, the appellant is held entitled to the insurance claim for an amount of Rs.6,30,000/- (Rs.7,00,000/- – 10% i.e. Rs.70,000/-= Rs.6,30,000/-). However, the learned District Forum had applied the depreciation @40% which appears to be unjustified. 20. The interest awarded by the learned District Forum @9% p.a. from 12.5.2004 upto the furnishing of the indemnity bond by the appellant is upheld. The indemnity bond was to be furnished by the respondents as per the order of the learned District Forum within a period of 1 ½ months after the receipt of a copy of this order. Since the appellant had filed the appeal in this Commission after obtaining a copy of the impugned order dated 12.5.2004 on 9.8.2005, therefore, the interest is limited upto 30.9.2005. 21. The costs of Rs.1000/- are upheld.”- After obtaining the insurance policy the petitioner had used the abovesaid vehicle for about 9 months. The vehicle was purchased in the year 2001. The passage of nine months must have further depreciated the value of the said vehicle. Consequently, depreciation at the rate of 10% appears to be quite reasonable. The revision petition is therefore dismissed.
