Dear Members,

Reg: Maternity leave period and encashment
This is Karim.
My wife working in Educational institute(Engineering College) in Telangana State.
She took 6months leave. But her college hr said only 1month will be paid.
I had few questions about Maternity leaves.
Q1: How many days of maternity leave in Telangana State?
Q2: How many days of paid for maternity leave in Telangana State?
Q3: After rejoin the college is she treat as new employee or existed employee?
Maternity Benefit Act is a central act. as per the act
"• The applicant can avail six weeks leave before the date of delivery and six weeks leave post delivery. The maximum leave benefit under normal circumstances will be 12 weeks (3 months).
• Un-availed Maternity Leave is non-encashable.
• The weekly offs and holidays falling during this period will be part of the leaves availed.
The above is not paid file an application before the Maternity Benefit Act authorities, mostly the authority would be Commissioner of Labour.
In a recent amendment , Maternity leave increased from 12 weeks to 26 weeks, which is not available to women who have already two surviving children and they are restricted to 12 weeks only.
