The issue here is not with the candidate. At least she was forthright in communicating her pregnancy. It is the company which is in hesitant mood just for sake of saving 12 weeks pay which is a social responsibility. She is in motherhood, treat her properly.

This is very critical issue please think and take advice from experienced person
The Simple facts here are,
1. Every company has probation period and 80% of the companies do not provide any leaves in the Probation period
2. As per Maternity Benefit Act 1961, she has to work in that company for a specific period of time to avail the Maternity benefit which is definitely more than 6 months.
3. 9/10 companies work on profit maximization concept, where there is very low scope for emotions now days, so these majority of companies will not allow her the paid leaves and will either ask her to leave or will inform her about LWP.
Hence, maybe I am bit harsh being an HR but cancelling the offer letter is the step taken because its the need of the time. Also they have not given her the appointment letter and there is a clause in HR manual or documents that company hold the rights to cancel the offer letter.

3) In this situation you shared, she is not going to be entitled for ML anyway. So let her join, provide basic induction, and team assignment and let her work from home at 50% of offered salary. That way, both the employee and the organization will gain.
Man, I don't know on which parallel universe, the above mentioned point can be considered.
