It is well settled that when a workman is on a public road or a public place or on a public transport he is there as any other member of the public and is not there in the course of his employment unless the very nature of his employment makes it necessary for him to be there. A workman is not in the course of his employment from the moment he leaves his home and is in the course of employment if he reaches the place of work or a point or an area which comes within the theory of notional extension, outside of which the employer is not liable to pay compensation for any accidennt . An accident arising 10 KM away whicle coming for duty will not be an accident arising out of employment.
Even otherwise when a worker is covered under the ESI , Workmen's Compensation ( now employee's compensation) is not payable.
In the above situation he can make a claim under MVA.
