dear anshul,
as per employees compensation act 1923 sec 2 para e the defination of employees is
(e) "employer" includes any body of persons whether incorporated or not and any managing agent of an employer and the legal representative of a deceased employer, and, when the services of a workman are temporarily lent or let on hire to another person by the person with whom the workman has entered into a contract of service or apprenticeship, means such other person while the workman is working for him ;
means casual employees also comes under this act.

Yes, they comes with the scope of Act. Prior to the Workman's Compensation Amendment Act 2000, the casual workman were outside the preview of the definition of Workman as defined in the Act, After amendment of 2000, the casual workmen were included in this definition. This definition was changed by way of Compensation (Amendment) Act 2009 and in its place definition of Workman was replaced by definition of Employees, The casual employee comes within this definition.
