If the person is not going to return to employment due to stroke and if you want to treat this as employment injury, then the benefit should be 100%. You must calculate the disability as 100% even if the disability is not mentioned in the list. the logic is simple. the person has lost his earning capacity due to stroke and hence you do not want to engage him further. Then the calculation must be on 100% loss of earning capacity.

As stated by you that Wage ceiling for calculation under Employee Compensation Act is Rs 8000/ . In other words, an employee drawing a salary of Rs 25000/ per month will get benefit based on Rs 8000/.
My Query is if the employee drawing salary less than Rs 8000 then which ceiling calculation to be consider 8000 OR < Rs 8000.
Kindly revert with your valuable inputs

Due to this he suffered Temporary Disability and He is on leave since one year. Now the company want to compensate him under workmen compensation act 1923 but the issue is that disability arises out of Brain stroke is nowhere mention in the act and under which parameters or diseases he has to be treated for the compensation and what will be the wages ceiling for calculation. Please help in this matter. Need suggestion and guidance.

As you have claimed that one of your Medical representatives in field is attacked by Brain stoke while traveling during duty hours in the train and has suffered temporary disability.I do not understand as to how you have termed the disease as temporary disability. First of all you need to prove that the brain stoke has any relevance with the duties he was performing because Section 3(4) of the Employee's Compensation Act,1923 clearly states that no compensation shall be payable to an employee in respect of any disease which is not directly attributable to specific injury by the accident arising out of and in course of his employment except occupational diseases explained in Sub-sections (2), (2A) and 3 of the Section 3 of the Act.
As regards your query that the company want to compensate him under workmen compensation Act, 1923 but the issue is that disability arises out of Brain stroke is nowhere mention in the Act is concerned, Section 4 (1) (c) (ii) clearly provides that in the case of an injury specified in Schedule I such percentage of the compensation payable in the case of permanent total disablement as is proportionate to the loss of earning capacity (As ASSESSED by the QUALIFIED MEDICAL PRACTITIONER) permanently caused by the injury. Thus the qualified medical practitioner will decide the quantum of loss of earning capacity and whether the disease will cause temporary or permanent disablement to the beneficiary.
As regards your query that what will be the wages ceiling for calculation is concerned, the members have already explained.

-As the employee became ill while on duty hours, it seems there is a casual connection between his job & illness, that warrants compensation from employer.
-It is very clearly guided by Apex court, under similar cases to compensate the employee or his dependents under these circumstances.
-though it isn't directly referred through ""ORDERS" of ECA, apex court guideline determines compensation.
