Hi, We are into US healthcare industry based out in west India. We have 5 days working i.e. Mon to Fri. Please advice on count of paid leaves which an employee should be entitled in this case?

Your business will fall under factories act if you manufacture and if you operate thru office then you fall under shops & establishment act.
Factories Act is central government statute & as such leave provision will be the same in all states. As per the act employee who has worked for: a) 240 days in calendar year or b) 2/3 of the working days if s/he had joined after 1st January in the previous year, will be 1 day leave for every 20 days worked.
Shops Act is a state statute. Depending on state your employees are deployed in the entitlement will differ.

Presuming that you are located in Maharashtra, the provisions of Bombay Shop & Establishment Act 1948 would be applicable and the relevant part is Section 35:on Leave which reads as follows: (1) (a) Subject to the provisions of clause (b), every employee who has been employed for not less than three months in any year, shall for every 60 days on which he has worked during the year be allowed leave, consecutive or otherwise, for a period of not more than five days.
(b) every employee who has worked for not less than two hundred and forty days during a year [irrespective of the date of commencement of his service,] shall be allowed leave, consecutive or otherwise, for a period of not less than twenty-one days :
Provided that such leave may be accumulated up to a maximum period of forty -two days.
You may consult the Act further to gather the details.
