Hello Seniors, I am working as HR Executive in manufacturing concern.
Recently our production worker met in an accident and died after completing his second shift duty.
May I know how to claim for death benefits.
Is any other benefits entitled on dependents of the deceased. If so what are the benefits
Also update what documents to be produced for the above claim & who needs to submit.
Looking for reply soon
Thank you

Is it during the course of employment? That means, after completing the work, while going back to his residence? If so, it will be deemed to be an accident during the course of employment. Only thing to be noted is that the time and place of accident should match the notional extension principle. As such if the death had taken place in a place through which he usually pass to reach is residence, and at the time who usually reach the place after logging out from the factory, then the accident will be deemed to be an accident during the course of employment.
In this case, the employer should submit online accident report.
In case of death during the course of employment, the nominee will get monthly pension. There is an immediate payment, funeral expense, to the tune of Rs 15000.
In order to claim the funeral expense the eldest member of the family shall apply in form 22 attested by the employer.
In order to get pension, the nominee shall submit the death certificate, location sketch of the place where the accident had taken place and copies of FIR and mahsar.
In addition to pension under ESI, the nominee will also get EDLI and pension from the EPFO.
