My question is can I publish a book chapter independently? I have completed my PhD and currently I am not enrolled anywhere, in this case can I publish it without approval of guide or institution?

You are not bound by any permissions. The Ph.D. thesis is your work and you have the copy-right. You might want to consider involving your Ph.D. advisor, because publishing papers even when based on Ph.D. thesis chapters is not trivial, but you have no obligation. In some disciplines (like mine / CS) it is customary to have the super-visor as a co-author, but this is not a requirement.
