Is it correct to contend that the expression ten times the amount deducted appearing in section 15(3) of the Act means that the compen- sation awarded under that section must be always in multiples of the wages deducted?

The compensation awarded under section 15(3) may not be in multiples of the wages deducted. The Authority is free to fix such compensation at the proportionate rate which it may think to be fair and just subject to the maximum of ten times the amount deducted.
