Hi I am having question on new maternity rule in India? I understand this is effective in IT companies starting 1 April 2017, but if a person is already on ongoing maternity leave during April, Would she get benefits as per new rule or not?

As per the Maternity Benefit Act 1961, to be eligible for maternity benefit, a woman must have been working as an employee in an establishment for a period of at least 80 days within the past 12 months. There is no other condition in the Act. So after finishing off the earlier maternity leave if the employee has further worked for 80 days then there is the eligibility for the next maternity benefit. Consider the cases of abortion after availing maternity leave, happening after 80 days of working after the resumption of duty.
