"The judgment is landmark in several ways as the court also considered the total amount in salary the victim would have earned till her retirement age," said Saha's lawyer, T V George.A bench of justices S J Mukhopadhaya and V Gopala Gowda passed the order on Saha's appeal challenging a mere Rs 1.72 crore compensation ordered by the National Consumer Commission Forum in October 2011.Enhancing the amount, the SC said doctors at the AMRI - Balram Prasad and Sukumar Mukherjee - will pay Rs 10 lakh each and a third doctor, Baidyanath Halder, will pay Rs 5 lakh.
