Can the Authority appointed under the Act to decide the claims of the employees award compensation to the tune of ten times of the amount of the difference between wages payable and wages actually paid, in every case?

The limit of "ten times the amount of such excess" mentioned in section 20(3)(i) of the Act is the maximum limit. When the Authority awards heavy compensation under the said section, it must give reasons for doing so.
