Though the Maternity Benefit (Amendment) Act has been notified by the govt. the effective date has not been mentioned. Therefore no one can answer your query authoritatively. I hope Once the effective date is notified by the govt. there may be clarity on your type of beneficiaries. We still await relevant instructions.
The following notification received from Labour Ministry with Images which has been attached :
