The ruling is applicable to government employees Private companies are not required to follow it, I think.

Maternity leave and marriage have no connection. There is nothing in the Act which says that only married women will be eligible to maternity leaves. The same will apply to remarriage also. If we follow the verdict, the a woman employee will get maternity benefits 'under each marriage'! At the same time, what the law says is that a woman employee having two surviving children is eligible to 26 weeks leave. If the employee has more than 2 surviving children, then also she will get leave but it is 12 weeks. That means it is the number of surviving children that will decide the number of maternity leave to which an employee is eligible to and not the marital status.

Yes, provided your establishment is covered by Maternity Benefits Act and the employee concerned is not under the ESI Scheme.
