Dear namita,
The working period for any establishment should be minimum 80 days,if she completed 80 days from her joining then she can claim for maternity leaves,but in your case she is continuing working with this organisation then she can claim for leaves.
But incase of transfer,she can't claim on this ,as a employee choice she can resign and get materinity benefits from the current organisation.
But she should complete 80 days of eligibility then get some claims etc.
and you can get more information at & write to me at
Best Regards

However silly though it might seem whenever married women apply for jobs I think it is prudent to ask them about how they plan their career progression? this works well both for the employer and candidates. I dont think anybody has been refused a job based on pregnancy so why not ask.
This actually avoids a lot of legal hassles if things go wrong. Why do u think companies conduct medical tests for their employees. definitely not to check if they are diabetic. Though this seems trivial i personally feel it is ok to ask.

Hi Samita,
As per maternity act, the maternity leave is applicabale to the employee if she is present in the organisation for atleast 80 days, so she should not resign but ask them for maternity leave. and Ofcourse being an hr person, they should have asked this that if any planning is there or not. The frank question is necessary. Because even if while joining she was not pregrent and after joining she would have got immidieately pregant then what is hr's part. HR must ask this question.
I think this quite natural and 2 months pregancy is too early to declare. Anything can happen.

Dear Admin,
I would to bring to notice the way, the language many members are responding to the queries is not at all appreciated and the CITEHR ADMIN should keep track of such members.
This is a place for free discussions and no one has any right to use offensive or sarcastic language. Its been mentioned in the rules of this site also. So i hope necessary action will be taken.

Hi Samita,

As per Maternity Act,
Female Employees are eligible to take maternity leave on completion of a minimum of 80 days of service in the Company, as defined in The Maternity Benefit Act, 1961.

Also there are some additions to it which are as below.
·Entitlement of maternity leave is for 12 weeks, starting from up to 6 weeks prior to the expected date of delivery and 6 weeks (including the day of delivery) following the delivery day. Weekly off days and holidays falling in between would also be counted as leave. It is to be noted that maximum leave allowed pre-delivery is 6 weeks and the balance leave of the total of 12 weeks is to be availed post-delivery.
·The employee may, in addition to above, avail leave for a maximum period of 1 month in case of illness arising out of pregnancy, delivery, premature birth of child or medical termination of pregnancy, on production of such proof as may be prescribed by the Company.
·In case of miscarriage, maximum 6 weeks’ of leave can be taken following the day of miscarriage.

Hello Everybody,
Warm Greets,
I think by hidding the Pregnancy by employees and Employer is not providing the maternity leave to his employees is creating a big problem. these escapes might result in DisBelif. might be possible employers may stop hiring newly married females, or females will restrict herself to plan her family. this inshort practicing very unethical and does not deliver a good Message. so Viewers Kindly stop practicing unethical. Be Honest to oneself as well as to others.

Dear Samita,
Your sistere is eligible for maternity leave as per the act if she had completed 80 days of continuious service in that organisation whether on probation or as a contract employee or as a casual employee. She is eligible for the benefits under maternity benefit act. She need not inform to the organisation whether she is pregant or not at the time of joining There is no such provision in our law.
Thanks and Regards
