Dear Friends,
The Central Government has notified 1-April-2017 as the effective date for the amendments passed via The Maternity Benefit (Amendment) Act 2017. Benefits such as 26 weeks of leave, creche etc are applicable effective the notified date.
My Qs is about Creche facility.
What is the expectation from Company - Is company expected to pay for the monthly expenses of the child in the crèche?
or we are just to have a tie-up with Day care and employees to deal with them directly for the expenses/ monthly charge etc.

Guys, is there anywhere age limit defined for the child ? I read in the above chain that charges can be split 50:50 between the company and this defined in the bill passed?

Hi, I think another addition to this amendment is that the crèche facility has to be set up within 500 meters. With all this, a company may have to set up the crèche in the same premise. However, setting up a crèche may not be feasible for all the companies. Is there any company who has initiated to work on the implementation of provision of crèche facility. Please share the thoughts

Hi All,
As per the Act there are many loop holes into Creche Facility. There is no age prescribed for child (in normally the age considered to be upto 6 years for crech). Secondly on cost sharing there is no clarifications, so depending on the company to company for cost sharing. The MB Act has no specific requirements around construction, facilities and staff of the crèche, etc. In such a scenario its important to take guidance from the National ECCE policy and state laws.
Beyond this if you have any other information, please share.
