Part A of your question, as it is, relates to the theory of notional extension of employment in terms of time and space.An accident to be an 'employment accident' should have the following ingredients - (1) the victim should be an employee as defined under the EC Act,1923 and (2) the accident should have arisen out of and in the course of his employment.To determine whether an accident arose out of employment, as you are well aware, there should be a CAUSAL connection between the accident and employment. Whether the accident was in the course of employment can be determined only with reference to the time and place of occurence of the accident. Normally, 'the time of occurrence' woiuld mean the exact point of time within the stretch of the employee's actual working hours;' the place of occurrence' would mean the actual place of employment whether within the employer's premises or outside depending upon the employment nature.However, in some types of employments and in a peculiar circumstance if any, in every employment, the time and place can not be fixed with mathematical precision; on the other hand they have to be notionally extended taking into consideration of the circumstances of the given case so as to make the ends of justice meet.The theory of notional extension of time and place, therefore, covers some extended areas in some special cases but that would depend upon the facts of each case and more so if a connection between the employment and the accident is established Hope, now, you can cull out the answers yourself for the queries in part A..
The introductory portion of part B seems a little bit cofusing to me.Do you mean that the WC Policy simultaneously covers the risks under Common Law1855(?) and Fatal Accident? Alternative remedy is provided for u/s 3(5) of the EC Act,1923 but not under both.

"notional extension" is this amendmend in the Workmen's Compensation Act, 1923 ?
WC policy provides cover for any insured employee who may sustain personal injury by accident or disease arising out of and in the course of his employment.
The company will indemnify the insured against all sums for which the insured is held liable to pay to his employees
1. Workmen's Compensation Act, 1923,
2. the Fatal Accidents Act 1855
3. and at Common Law

(1)"Notional extension of employment" is a theory propounded by the higher Courts with ref to the time and place of occurrence of employment accidents in order to fix the liability of
(2) A single insurance policy would not cover the liability arising out of same cause of action under more than one Insurance Law simultaneously I think. Seniors well-versed in
Insurance Laws may, please throw more light.
