The only legal question that remains is whether the deceased was covered under the Employee Compensation Act 1923. It is not likely but you may check Schedule II of the Act on the scope of the Act. As this was a traffic accident, the motor vehicle compensation is substantial and shall be pursued. Is there no Insurance policy or death relief scheme of the company?
Beyond accepting the point mentioned by Mr.KK!HR, one more thing here to be noted is if the employer has contributed in Employee compensation Act, whether the employee (your brother) has given the nominee details in the policy or not also matters.If not so, the Management may not give the compensation to others beyond legal heirs or nominees.

MY question IS any legal possibility to claim any compensation from the company by my brothers wife. motor vehicle insurance PA claim is only 1lak.and also she had a children's 6 and 11 yr age.
The employer is bound to pay the compensation from his sources if he (the deceased/your brother) died while coming from the duty as stated by you.
Please approach the Management (your brother's company) immediately,if they have not responded you can approach the Labor Department for necessary action. They will lodge a case of Workman's Compensation against your brother's employer
