The only conditions attached to are that the nexus between time of accident and the place of accidents (Notional extension) should be established. Therefore, if the time of accident is the same time the employee travels normally and the place is the same place through which he commutes regularly, then the accident will be regarded as accident during the course of employment.
The thread was started in 2008 when the above incidents were out of the scope of workmen's compensation or compensation under ESI.
