Dear Experts, During the Maternity leave, is employee eligible to earn Privilege leave for that period ( do we need to provide PLís for the period when any employee is on maternity leave ) Sushant
From India, Thana
PL leave is calculated 1 day for 20 physically present days. So, she may not eligible during her maternity leave period. However, for calculation of 240 days we need to consider maternity leave.

Dear Suahanth,
An employee who is availing maternity leave cannot avail the PL.
If she is on leave beyond the maternity leave she can avail the sick leave as per the company policy.

I think you are covered under the Shops & Commercial Estt. Act. If so refer to the Act. However note the following provision of Karnataka Shops & Comml.Estt.Act. -
" 15. Annual leave with wages.
[(1) Every employee in an establishment shall be entitled to leave with wages and shall be allowed to avail such leave for the number of days calculated at the rate of,-
(i) one day for every twenty days work performed by him, in case of an adult;
(ii) one day for every fifteen days of work performed by him, in case of a young person;
: For the purpose of this sub-section,
(a) any day of lay-off, by agreement or contract as permissible under the standing order or for any other reasons beyond the employer's control;
(b) in the case of female employee, maternity leave for any number of days not exceeding twelve weeks; and
(c) the leave earned in the year prior to that in which the leave is enjoyed:
-shall be deemed to be days on which the employee has worked in an establishment for the purposes of computation of leave under this section, but the employee shall not earn leave for that period.]

Dear Ravi
Did you come across any legal restriction that PL/EL cannot be combined with maternity leave i.e. "employee availing maternity leave cannot avail the PL." Can you give reference to this for my knowledge sake ? Generally ML and sick leave if available both will be combined. What happens if there is no sick leave at the credit of the employee and only PL/EL is left to be availed ? she cannot avail sick leave ?

Nowhere it is mentioned as Maternity leave. It is Maternity benefit only for 12 weeks period.
The act says " to regulate the employment of women in certain establishments for certain periods before and after child-birth and to provide for
maternity benefit and certain other benefits. "
So, certain benefits are given during her absence for the 12 week period. I think such period of absence is not a break in service and to be counted as working days. IMO, such period shall be included while calculating PL.
Experts on this subject may comment, if I am wrong.
