Dear all,
Pls find attached some abstracts from Maternity Benefit Act, 1961.
THE MATERNITY BENEFIT ACT, 1961
INTRODUCTION
The object of maternity leave and benefit is to protect the dignity of motherhood
by providing for the full and healthy maintenance of women and her child when
she is not working.
An Act to regulate the employment of women in certain establishments for
certain period before and after child-birth and to provide for maternity benefit and
certain other benefits.
You can see, it is not mentioned anywhere that "The women should be married". Hence the Act applies of all women.

From India, Delhi
There is no concept of married or unmarried mentioned in the Act for eligibility to avail maternity benefit.it is just view of the society.
