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.

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.

Dear Madhu Sir, As per the attachment the eligibilty period is 180 days. The link given by Raghunath shows 80 days. Please confirm whether it is 80 days or 180 days ? Thanks & Regards, Jeene

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.
