Since "ectopic pregnancy" or " Tublar pregnancy " is a relatively rare condition in which the fertilized egg gets embedded and grows in a place ( especially in the fallopian tube ) other than the uterus, it is treated with surgery only to medically terminate the foetus. Therefore, it also falls within the ambit of the term " medical termination of pregnancy " defined u/s 3(ha) of the Maternity Benefit Act,1961. As per sec.9 , in case of medical termination of pregnancy, such a woman is entitled to leave with wages for a period of 6 weeks immediately following the day of medical termination of pregnancy. In addition to this, as per sec.10, she can also be allowed leave with wages for a maximum period of one month for any illness arising out of such medical termination of pregnancy.
