Good effort by Mr. opalakrishna. I have some points to note.

Maternity leave can be availed in full (12 weeks) after the delivery also. Only thing is that she cannot take more than 6 weeks leave before the expected date of delivery.

In Maternity Benefit Act, there is provision for 6 weeks leave for miscarriage.

Goog luck

great work. if you can inform about the 'forms' which are legally required by the company to submit/maintain, it would be more BENEFICIAL like 'muster roll 'a' etc.

In order to be eligible for maternity benefits under the Maternity Benefits Act, the woman employee should have worked at least for 80 days during the 12 months immediately preceding the expected date of delivery. If it is written as 180, it is an error.

For Government employees the Service Rules of the respective state (Rajastan) and not the Maternity Benefit Act will be applicable. Regards, Madhu.T.K

Dear asnanigee

When you say "Can I Join at new place of Posting...." it implies "working" on that day,at least; because although in practice a new joinee does no work on the day of joining; however she is definitely treated as "ON DUTY".

Hence my suggestion is that you avail of the maternity leave benefit in full, without any worry about our job. You are neither being compelled to join, nor you can be compelled to join, the new place of posting immediately. So why the undue rush to join ? In any case the reporting officer will not accept your joining till you complete your maternity leave tenure.

Your job shall be kept safe at the new place of posting, with the remarks, "On maternity leave".

Warm regards.

Dear Member,

We have not noticed any change in the period of maternity benefit ( leave) under the Maternity Benefit Act, 1961. 180 maternity leaves may be available to Govt. female employees.

As per Section 11

11. Nursing breaks. -- Every woman delivered of a child who returns to duty after such
delivery shall, in addition to the interval for rest allowed to her, be allowed in the course
of her daily work two breaks of the prescribed duration for nursing the child until the
child attains the age of fifteen months.

Please help with the "prescribed duration" for the same.
Posted 11th September 2012 From India, Gurgaon
Pls help, even I have read about the nursing break twice a day till fifteen months. However, a woman don't bring her child to workplace and it is not necessary that she works close to her residence.

So how do we give the break. A resting break is understandable but how does nursing break help?
Posted 12th October 2012 From India, Mumbai
Dear Member,
Prescribed duration is provided by the applicable Rules. According to Rule 7 of Haryana Maternity Benefit Rules, 1967 we are to allow two breaks for nursing the child. Rule 7 may be read as under.
7. Break for nursing child - (1) Each of two breaks mentioned in section 11 shall be of 20 minutes duration.
Provided that in case the crèche or place where children are left by women while on duty is not in the vicinity of the place of work a period up to 15 minutes more may be allowed for the purpose of journey to and from crèche or the place.
