Paternity leave as of now is not mandatory.
But many companies give it .
Usually it varies from three days to ten days.
It is restricted to two children in most of the cases.
Also rearely some companies consider giving paternity leave in case of miscarriage of wife. This will also vary from two days to seven days.
Some companies give a gift cheque of Rs.5000/- per child for two children along with paternity leave as well.

It is not mandatory for the company to give a paternity leave for their employees. However companies at times would give this which would be a minimum of 2 days to a maximum of 7 days. In some companies they may also give some Gift like child insurance, Child care sets, etc depends on the employees status.

Indeed peternity leave policy for men is a must because the following points appended below help them feel happy at all times.
a) Husband who is really near to the wife is more happy to express what she wants.
b) A week's holiday has to be given which is a must.
c) Gifts like a sum of Rs 5000/- is a must where the husband feels a sense of belonging to the company he is working.
d) This leave is excluded from his CL or SL or a long vacation planned earlier.
