A man booked a temple made from marble which was supposed to be delivered in the United States. The temple was also insured by the production firm as it was expensive and required safe delivery. When the temple was delivered, it was found broken in the package and the insurance company reportedly refused to accept the claim.
The case of the marble temple dates back to August 2018. Manish Patel of Pennsylvania bought a temple made of marble from Vimmi Export, Udaipur, on 13th August 2018. The temple was worth almost 3,55,000 rupees and as per conditions stated it was to be delivered safely in Pennsylvania. The temple was found broken at the time of delivery and the recipient Manish refused to accept the delivery. The temple was sent via sea route and probably was not handled with care, as a result of which it broke. Since Manish refused to accept the consignment, the concerned marble firm owner filed a case against the insurance company which had refused to process the claim of the broken temple. The case was filed with the Lok adalat which directed the insurance company to pay the amount of the temple at 3,55,000 rupees along with 15,000 rupees against mental agony and 15,000 rupees against the court fees borne by the complainant.
