May I seek your attention once again to Sec.5(3) of the MB Act,1961 which runs as follows?
"Sec.5(3)- The maximum period for which any woman shall be entitled to maternity benefit shall be 26 weeks of which not more than 8 weeks shall precede the date of delivery provided that the maximum period entitled to maternity benefit by a woman having 2 or more than 2 surviving children shall be 12 weeks of which not more than 6 weeks shall precede the date of expected delivery."
A careful analysis of the above provisions would indicate only that the prenatal leave shall not exceed 8 weeks in any case. If the pregnancy condition permits the woman to work as usual, she may opt to avail less than 8 weeks of leave before her expected date of delivery and add the balance to the post-delivery period. Therefore, the answer to your query can be a simple " YES" only in relation to prenatal and postnatal benefit.
