Dear Sir/Ma'am
I am confused to see that as per Maternity Benefit Act 1961 (No. 53 of 1961) Clause 5 (2) No woman shall be entitled to maternity benefit unless she has actually worked in an establishment of the employer from whom she claims benefit, for a period of not less than 1*80 days in the 12 months immediately preceding the date of her expected delivery. https://www.ilo.org/dyn/travail/docs...itsact1961.pdf
While on this site:
https://labour.gov.in/sites/default/...fitAct1961.pdf
Maternity Benefit Act 1961 (No. 53 of 1961) Clause 5 (2) No woman shall be entitled to maternity benefit unless she has actually worked in an establishment of the employer from whom she claims benefit, for a period of not less than 160 days in the 12 months immediately preceding the date of her expected delivery.
Please tell me which one is correct or when it was amended.
I have attached both the attachment.

The second one, ie, requirement of 160 days was amended and and it stands 80 days in 12 months. You can take 80 days and ignore 160 days.

Ma'am,
I also want to know when it was amended and can you provide its notification for the proof. Because even in labour law sites I didn't get any notification regarding the amendment. Please....

What is the purpose of date and notification? You take a bare Act o the Maternity Benefit Act and show it to concerned.
Please don't call me Maam, because I am not a lady!

he was asking about the notification of changing the qualifying days to make an employee eligible for maternity benefit from 160 days to 80 days.It was taken place a decade back, I think.

Dear Sir,
I got this file and also knew that "The Act was last amended by the Maternity Benefit (Amended) Act, 1988 which came into force from 10th Jan 1989. That the qualifying period of service for the entitlement of Maternity Benefit under the Act has been reduced from 160 days to 80 days of actual work in the preceding twelve months."
I still searching for the notification. Because above mentioned information is not a source. I want to know the source. From where it was taken.

The ESIC has raised the wage limit to 21,000 rupees, which in turn means, the employees who are receiving a salary of 21,000 rupees and contribution is deducted on the same, if the employee is promoted to a salary range of 25,000 rupees.immediate to preceding month for 5 month after promotion contribution has to be deducted on Rs 21,000 OR Rs 25,000. Kindly revert.

Till the contribution period ends the employee will be covered and his contribution on the actual salalry, ie, 25000 should be remitted.

Dear Sir,
Greetings!!!
I have some queries related to maternity benefit acts
* after serving more than 80 days in company, “Provided that the maximum period entitled to maternity benefit by a woman having two or more than two surviving children shall be twelve weeks of which not more than six weeks shall proceed the date of her expected delivery”
My question is for how many times same female employees can take benefits of leaves in case of miscarriage if 4-5-6-7- months is running ? or maternity benefits leave starts only after her 6 months of delivery ?
19th June 2019 From India, Mumbai
First of all, for an eligible woman employee, for the first two child birth the maternity leave is 26 weeks. Of this 26 weeks, she can take a maximum of 8 weeks before delivery.
In the case of woman already having two children,the maternity leave is for 12 weeks. Of this 12 weeks, she can take a maximum of 6 weeks before delivery.
The leave for miscarriage is for 6 weeks without any qualification as to number of days working. There is no mention about how many times a woman can take such leave.
