1.Sir, the material you uploaded is of a bill and not an Act. The said bill is still to be passed by the Lok Sabha and has not become a law so far.
2. Regarding rates of payments of the maternity benefit under the Maternity Benefit Act, 1961, hope you will go through the said Act in which the rates of such payments have been mentioned. In case of any doubt, thereafter you can ask in this thread with specific points of doubts, if any.

1. Official Gazette Notification is not yet passed. As of now, it is only 12 weeks.
2. You need to pay 100% of her usual salary. (Including all components). You need to deduct Statutory compliance like PF, PT etc.
Note: For ESI enrolled employee, no need to pay the salary; Put LOP for all the leaves. Insist the employee to get the salary from ESIC.
