The Employee's Compensation Act, 1923 has been amended with the new Section 17 A requiring the Employer at the time of employment to inform employees of their rights under this Act in writing and in electronic form in English or in Hindu or in official language of the area of employment. General penalty under Section 18 (1) of the Act has been increased from five thousand rupees to fifty thousand rupees which may extend to one lakh rupees. In case of appeal under Section 30 (1) previously appeal would lie if the amount in dispute in the appeal was not less than three hundred rupees, now this has changed to ten thousand rupees or as Central Government may direct. With regards to withholding of certain payments pending decision of appeal, by Commissioner on direction of High Court under Section 30 A, this provision has now been omitted.
