Maternity leave:- Can a woman be eligible for Maternity leaves, who recently joined the service? In central government rules on probation for two years against regular establishment, after second confinement. The age of first child is one year nine months and the second child is seven weeks only. If the woman completes 80 days service, the second child will be 130 days only, in this stage is it possible to avail rest 50 days Maternity leave for taking care of new baby?
Please note that The Maternity benefit Act, 1961 is not applicable for " taking care of Second Child" as stated above
For private employees only 26 weeks is allowed.
However for as per the 6th Pay commission grant of Child Care Leave to Women Central Government Employees is maximum two years for women government employees for taking care of maximum two children.
The child care leave given to Central Government female employees is apart from the Maternity leave .
Thus they receive two leaves. Child Care Leave ( 2 years ) and Maternity leave (26 weeks)
The entire tenure is of 2 years for children below 18 years.
An central government employee can take one year per child or full 2 years for only one child.
The child care leave can also be done taken 3 months and then after some time 6 months and so on.
However the maximum tenure for all the leaves ( category child care) will be 2 years.
You need to refer the 6th pay commission for additional details. The current pay commission is the 7th pay commission. So kindly check if any amendments have been done.
I do not have much details on the modalities for the same. But the brief summary is given above.
