Any workmen employed either on casual, temporary or permanent if he/she met with an accidet during the course of employment resulted in either temporary or permanent disablement of bopdily injured or fatal, the victim is covered under Payment of Workmen Compensation Act, 1923. This compensation amount is to be deposited with the Commissioner of Workmen Compensation Act and to be paid to the injured person or next of the kin in case of fatal by completing all the formalities under the Act. This com pensation does not related to your EPF, ESI.Gratuity or Bonus. The entire compensation as specified in the act liabilities will be of the employer. No eligibility criteria is specified in the Act. Even if a person joined today and unfortunately met with in accident next day is eligible for Compensation.
This is the practical case which I have faced personally during the tenure of my service as a Personnel Officer in the year 1973 in one of the fatal accident.

I know that the Workmen Compensation Act, 1923 is repel as Employees Compensation Act, 2010. Although the name is changed, the objects and definitions of the act is remain the same may be slight amendment in the Act. Since Mr.Gaur has asked his clarification under Workmen Compensation Act, 1923, I had give the opinion. Otherwise, I would have used the New name of the act. Thanks for correcting me.
