Generally, compensation for injuries sustained in an employment accident resulting in permanent disability can be claimed under the Employees Compensation Act,1923 if the affected person is an employee as defined u/s 2(1)(dd) read with Schedule II of the Act. In case he is covered by the Employees State Insurance Act,1948, his relief lies only under that Act.
Therefore, your employment details like your designation, nature of job etc., the nature and the extent of the disability as assessed by a registered Medical Practitioner and whether you are an insured employee under the ESI Act are essential to suggest the legal action to be pursued.

EDLI: As the name indicates, it is a life insurance and is not attracted in your case.
EPS: There is a provision for early pension in cases of non-employment before 58 years, otherwise it is after superannuation only.
As regards Employee Compensation Act , more facts are needed.

In your case the employer is liable to pay compensation as per Employees Compensation Act provided the notional extension rules are met. Since the accident has taken place within 100 mts from the work place the same is said to be met partially. If the accident had taken place at the same time at which you usually pass through the place, then the notional extension of time is also said to be met. Obviously, if you are an ESi covered employee the compensation will be paid by the ESI corporation in the form of monthly pension.
