Dear All,
can anyone tell me the maternity leaves rules for private concerns in india.As per our company rules, no salary during the maternity leave.
In case , salary is less than 10,000 , they will come under the ESI act.
Those who are getting the salary above 10,000 ,will not get the salary.
Is it true.? Please Help me.

thank you so much...
I have one more doubt.. Is the company should pay the full wages during the maternity period ? .. for example ,
If the employee salary is 12000 per month then, the company will pay the full wages(basic,DA,HRA,PFand other allowances) or only the basic pay ..

Dear G. Chandramohan,
For claiming maternity benefit you are to serve notice under section 6 of the Maternity Benefit Act, 1961 in the format as prescribed in your State Rules along with the certificate of the doctor regarding pregnancy on you employer.
