Hi All,
Recently, I heard through word of mouth that there has been an amendment in Maternity Benefits Act in terms of the leave period extended to 6 months.
Is this a correct information? I tried to find on some sites, could not get anything relevant.
Please comment..

Dear Ashwini,
There will be not circular received from Labour dept. about amenment in no. of leave. Neither we heard any labour journal.
But recently, the amendment happened in Maternity Bonus. The Bonus amount enhanced from Rs. 250/- to Rs. 1000/-.

Hi Amit
Thanks for sending the amendment.
But it is vague "if no pre-natal confinement and post-natal care is provided by the employer free of charge"
Can you elaborate on this please.

Anuraadhaa,
Post natal care is the special care of the newly born after the birth. If an employer is providing any such facility free of cost then he is not liable to pay Maternity Bonus.
Nisha: Earlier this amount was Rs 250 which is now proposed to be revised to Rs 1000/-. Its just a type of allowance given by the employer to the employee in subject to enable her meet the immediate expenses on the newly born child after birth.

Dear Amit
Thanks a lot for the explanation.
One more thing, "no pre-natal confinement " would mean?
The word "confinement" is quite misleading coz we can't force a employee to go on leave or take rest. we had case wherein the employee worked till almost the last date of delivery.
Thanks again :D :D

Hi Anuradha,
You have misunderstood the meaning of Pre Natal Confinement. It is called confinement for the unborn child as he/she remains confined in the womb of the mother. Pre Natal Confinement Care means all the care before expected delivery and post natal care means care after delivery. Hope everything is clear now.

Hi,
Thanks for the info in previous posts.
I read on net about the amendment of maternity benefit act in 2007
Although the act named as MB act 2007, the bill was passed in Feb-March 2008
Does it means women, who delivered after March 2008 can avail the benefits, or before that?
What does means pre natal care? Does it include Doctors appointed for company or money(Gynac charges) provided by company...? or anything else?
If any women applies/ delivered baby during period after putting the bill in houses of parliament (i.e. MAy 2007) & before it got passed; can she get the benefit of amendment?
If the woman is physically unable to reach at the work on time(due to child's requirement of feeding) but completes the work hours, can she take protection of the act?
How she can take benefit of nursing breaks if there is no creche in office & her home is far away from the work place? Can she ask for concession in IN & OUT timings?

Hi All
Yes, there is amendment in the maternity act that is period of leave increased from 12 weeks to 6 months and bonus is also hiked upto 1000/= and a new paternity benefit is also under regulation for father of the child for the care of the women and child.
14th August 2010 From India, Delhi
Dear Members,
According to me the answer to the above post has not been answered. Therefore I am making an attempt to resolve your queries. Section 8 of Maternity Benefit Act, 1961 after the amendment creates a liability on employer to pay Rs.1000 as a medical bonus, if no pre-natal confinement and post natal care is provided by employer free of charge. In the present context:-
Pre- natal means- period before pregnanacy.
Post natal means- after pregnancy
Confinement - means labour resulting in the issue of a living child or labour after 26 weeks of pregnancy resulting in the issue of a child whether dead or alive.(Refer Section 2 (3) of ESI Act,1948)
So,if employer has paid the such charges to such women employee then such employer is exempted under Section 8 of Maternity Benefit Act or vice-versa.

Hello Everyone,
I need help in understanding a doubt of mine wrt Maternity Benefit Amendment Act 2016.
Suppose a woman has applied for Maternity Leave as per old rules (twelve weeks leaves) and while she was on leave, this amendments are notified by Government and new rule of twenty six weeks becomes applicable.
Under such scenario, can woman (already on leave of 12 weeks per previous act before amendment) extend her leaves (legally) to 26 weeks per new amendments?
I am sure many people will have this question.
Any help/guidance on this will be humbly appreciated.
Thanks

Dear friends,
Yes, these doubts would emerge one after the other till a clarity is available. Let us await proper gazette notification which likely to be issued once the President's accent is given for the bill now passed by the parliament. Till then it is not proper to answer to such queries with hypothetical view point. Hope the notification would address these queries.

To clarify further on Anuradha's query -
natal ( a Latin word) meaning 'of or relating to birth'
Pre- natal means "before birth"
Post natal means " after birth"
These terms are available in any dictionary which the queriest should make use of as frequently as possible as referring and gaining knowledge should be a habit of every day life.
Maternity leave IS NOT applicable "before pregnancy" but only after (during the)"pregnancy" in a female employee is confirmed and after the birth of a child or termination or abortion or 'still born' as the case may be. Refer the Act for further info on this.
