Women employees of the central government who have a child through surrogacy will be entitled to maternity leave, according to an official order of the personnel ministry.
They can get paid maternity leave of 26 weeks (about 180 days).
The ministry has written to all central government departments about a Delhi High Court order of 2015 on the issue.
"All ministries/departments are advised to give wide publicity of its contents to the concerned officers," the personnel ministry said in its latest directive to all the ministries and enclosed a copy of the court's order with it.
Claiming Maternity Benefit for child birth through arrangement by surrogate parents was upheld by the Kerala High Court in K.Kalaiselvi v. Chennai Port Trust delivered on 04-03-2013 based on the judgment of the Supreme Court in Baby Manji Yawada v. Union of India [ 2008 (13) SCC 518 ].
