Question is not very clear.
Death of an employee inside the work premises while on work (Factories/industrial establishments/corporate office) or outside the office premises while on official work or while at home?
It depends on the case nominees of the employee are eligible for benefits like PF,ESI, labour welfare fund and Employees Compensation Act.

Madhu.T.KWhat is a notice pay? It is the payment in lieu of notice period. What is the objective of notice period? It is the period which is required for the employer to find a replacement. It is the period an employee who is terminated or asked to go to find a suitable job for him.
In the case of death, obviously, everything including employment contract will come to an end. But is it due to an employee resigning? No. Is it due to an employer terminating the employee? No. That means neither the employee nor the employer has terminated the contract of employment but the contract comes to an end automatically. As such neither party has any liability to pay notice pay. If the dependents are asking for notice pay, naturally, you can also ask for it from the employer's side saying that you did not terminate the contract, but the employee has done it and as such he or his dependents should give notice pay!!!

Only complete the F & F properly - If PF member then EDLI, PF, EPS ; If eligible for Gratuity pay the same, Leave pay if any, Salary dues if any and any other extra legal facility e.g insurance by organization in case of death etc.

The query is rightly explained by one of our esteemed contributors Mr.Madhu.T.K. You need not to pay any notice pay in case of death of any employee whether on duty or outside the premises.
