Daily allowance given to the employee working as a cleaner is to be construed to be a part of his wages for calculating the compensation.
In the absence of service of notice as required under section 10 of the Employees' Compensation Act, 1923, no claim shall be entertained unless the Commissioner has recorded reason (s) thereto giving sufficient cause thereof.
