Hi,
Lok Sabha passed the new Maternity bill on this Thursday. Maternity Benefit (Amendment) Bill, 2016, working women in all establishments- public and private will be entitled to 26 weeks of maternity leave.
Once the President gives his assent to the Maternity Benefit (Amendment) Bill, 2016, working women in all establishments- public and private will be entitled to 26 weeks of maternity leave.
In case a woman adopts a child below three months, she will be given 12 weeks leave from the date the child is handed over to her.
All establishments with 50 or more employees will also have to provide creches once the bill becomes law.

Rakesh Sharma
Will this change be applicable to mothers who started their maternity leave already (a month ago)?
Sir, the total 50 and more employees covered direct employees as well as contractors/indirect employees employed? Please guide .
Wherever mention of manpower is made for the purpose of coverage of any Act or a particular section or provision in the Act, it should be total manpower including workers employed through contractor(s). Therefore, if you have only 10 employees under your direct rolls whereas you have some 40 persons engaged through a contractor, then also the provisions relating to creche etc will be applicable to your establishment.
