From India, Bengaluru
Hi Thiyagu,

Thank You Sir, I refered your reference link but it is not clear understanding for me because first A Sub Section (i) point mention 12 weeks to 26 weeks but same A sub Section (ii) mention Two or more than Surviving children 12 weeks only . So, May i know the first delivery only eligible for 26 weeks and two and more than delivery eligible for 12 weeks or please clarify my doubts.
(A) in sub-section (3)—
(i) for the words ‘‘twelve weeks of which not more than six weeks’’, the
words ‘‘twenty-six weeks of which not more than eight weeks’’ shall be substituted;
53 of 1961.
(ii) after sub-section (3) and before the first proviso, the following provisoshall be inserted, namely:—
‘‘Provided that the maximum period entitled to maternity benefit by
a woman having two or more than two surviving children shall be twelve
weeks of which not more than six weeks shall precede the date of her
expected delivery;’’;

Dear both,
Pls note the attached document is only a bill which has been passed in Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha as well. The format gazzated notification yet to be released by the concerned authority/ies.
I have shared a presentation on Labour Laws and Statutory Compliances,, in which I seeked advice of senior members to which Mr Madhu TK has replied and my point also cleared which many member appreciated.
Hope you too understand the point.
Dear Thiyagu rightly understood by you, when the amendment will become applicable, the 26 week criterial will be entitled only for first two surviving kids. If any woman apply maternity leave for third child than she will be entitled only for 12 weeks.

From India, Delhi
In case of women who have less than two surviving children (i.e. at least two Children) increase the maximum period of maternity benefit from the existing twelve weeks to twenty-six weeks,
In other cases, the existing period of twelve weeks maternity benefit shall continue.
