Dear Greeshma,
The act is not based on case to case or company to company. It is been decided and has to be accepted by all companies. If any deviation in the act is found then you will face penalties accordingly.
Thus request you to do not take such decision which will put you in problem in future.

Dear Greeshma,

As per the amended rules maternity leave to be 26 weeks and every company / organization need to follow the same hence better to comply with the existing rules and violation will be costly.

In case the employee / any one lodges complaint then the Occupier / Manager will be behind bars with other implications like penalty etc.

Dear Greeshma,

When the central government enacts acts, these are applicable to all. Parliament is supreme in enacting the laws and no citizen can overrule it. Secondly, you may have your internal HR policies. However, these should fulfil the statutory requirement and these cannot override the acts that are in force. You may give equal or more benefits than what the law stipulates but not the less.

If whims and fancies, likes and dislikes are allowed to supersede the statutes then there it will put question mark against the sovereignty of the country itself!

Thanks,

As Mr. Dinesh said the act is been amended and the Maternity Benefit policy needs to be revised as per the act.

The policy needs to be framed clearly & you can share the amended MB act for the management for their reference.

Hi,

As per the Government of India, the maternity benefit act is applicable to all companies from 1 April, 2017. It is an Act by the law and we need to adhere to the rules formed. For your reference, go through the link for the guidelines - https://www.stacowiki.in/en/acts/st-...efit-act-1961/
