dear all,
Can anybody clarify me about maternity leave rules under Maternity Benefit Act ?
Is maternity leave 12 week + 1 month (extendable in case of illness of mother / child) or 12 week + 1.5 month.
Kindly update me on this.
thanks & regards

It’s 12 week and if any emergency arise out of maternity then there will be 1 more month maternity benefits.

The employee concerned can avail an additional leave of one month with pay as per the stipulations of Section 10 of the Maternity Benefit Act 1961 which clearly stipulates "A woman suffering from illness arising out of pregnancy, delivery; premature birth of child, miscarriage, medical termination of pregnancy or tubectomy operation, shall, on production of such proof as may be prescribed, be entitled, in addition to the period of absence allowed to her under section 6, or, as the case may be, under section 9, to leave with wages at the rate of maternity benefit for a maximum period of one month.". In case the concerned woman employee seeks any further extension, then in such case the company may take a decision at its discretion whether to adjust the leave available to the credit of the said employee as on such date or otherwise.
