Hi, I am working in an IT sevices company. Please let me know if there is any change in Paternity Act as we are giving 2 days paternity leaves to our employees. Thanks in advance. Sweta

I have not come across any Act by name Paternity Act on the lines of the Maternity Benefit Act.. However I understand that there is provision for paternity leave in service rules of some companies for which you need to frame a policy.
I fully agree with Mr. Sai kumar and Mr. Pon there is no Paternity Act is in force in India, but as rightly said by Mr. Sai Kumar there is a provision of Paternity Leave is some of the companies, so refer the policy and if that require to be amended please consult the management and amend it accordingly.
