If he is covered by ESI, would be entitled to leave pay and accident benefits. ESI law also recognize the notional extension of employment;

Even if he is covered under Group personal accident scheme then the GPA will take care of. As rightly mentioned by our friend Mr.Vasudevan his case can be taken care by ESI if he is covered under ESI. It is better to cover all the employees with GPA who are out of ESI so that the risk for employer will be less.
