If the member falls under ESIC then "Wages" means all remuneration paid or payable in cash to a woman, if the terms of the contract of employment, express or implied, were fulfilled and includes-
(1) such cash allowances (including dearness allowance and house rent allowance) as a woman is for the time being entitled to,
(2) incentive bonus, and
(3) the money value of the concessional supply of food grains and other articles, but does not include-
(i) any bonus other than incentive bonus;
(ii) over-time earnings and any deduction or payment made on account of fines;
(iii) any contribution paid or payable by the employer to any pension fund or provident fund or for the benefit of the woman under any law for the time being in force; and
(iv) any gratuity payable on the termination of service;
But incase the member does not fall under ESIC then during the maternity leave she would get her full salary (for 3 mths)

Thanks for the information shared. I am Srinivas working as a HR in an IT company.
When the employee is paid maternity benefits.. like her full monthly salary for 3 months, do u need to deduct PF from her salary.
What happens to the Employer's PF contribution? does the employer needs to pay?
What if the employee want to extend her maternity leave (after 12 weeks) due to medical reasons.. like weekness..

My company says they will only pay basic and HRA + Rs. 250 medical bonus. Their justification is that she is entitled to only "average daily wages" which includes the above only and not medical allowance, conveyance allowance and special allowance. Please advice.

Request you to kindly assit me with the query mentioned below:
If an employee does not fall under ESIC for Maternity Leaves, then is she eligible for her performance incentives (variable component) apart from her Fixed Salary.
24th April 2013 From India, Mumbai
I would like to know the pay during maternity period. As per our company policy 90 days maternity leave is allowed to avail. One of our employees availed the maternity leave, she was on leave from December onwards.
Salary structure of 41000
1250 Medical Allowance
6150 Other all
Her monthly CTC is 41000 I am bit confused about the maternity payment as the previous HR in my company used to pay only the basic + DA (90 days- Maternity leave payment) to the employee after the maternity leave. I would like to the calculation which should be followed by an IT company in Kerala

I found that the salary is paid by ESIC department and not by the company. ESIC has their own processes which employer and employee must know. My small concern is - Is the salary of maternity period is paid in "one go" or "deferred" or "any other mechanism"?
