MATERNITY-BENEFITS (Section 50 of the ESI Act)
Maternity Benefit is admissible to insured women in the event of confinement or miscarriage etc. for 12 weeks and the rate of about 100 percent of the wages.

Maternity Benefit is admissible for :

42 days in case of miscarriage.
This benefit is also admissible for sickness arising out of pregnancy / miscarriage or confinement for a maximum period of one month , additionally. The rate of this benefit is equal to or a little more than the wages i.e. double the standard benefit rate. Maternity benefit continues to be payable even in the death of an insured woman during her delivery or immediately following the date of her delivery leaving behind a child , for the whole of that period and in case the child also dies, during the said period, until the death of the child.

An insured woman is eligible for maternity benefit for confinement / miscarriage, if contributions in respect of her have been paid or payable for not less than 70 days in the two immediately preceding consecutive contribution periods with reference to the Benefit Period in which the confinement took place.
The minimum daily maternity benefit rate is Rs.28/- and maximum is Rs.390/- as per present rates. At present maximum amount of maternity benefit in terms cash, thus, works out to Rs.32760/-

hello anand nair & manita chauhan,
this is gaurav here from surat, well first let me give anand's question's answer. as far as maternity leave is concerned then as per the act we have to sanction leave for 120 days with pay (that is theoritically:icon10: but practically it depends on exact situation of that company & other factors) so we can conclude k for 120 days (min 120 days) leave have to be granted & now lets move to manita's question so as far as extention of leave is concerened so it depends upon firm whether it wants to pay half or full or dont want to pay at all after completion of 120 days. so i hope i made u satisfied.
with warm regards...

Dear Gaurav, I just wanted to know under which Act it is 120 days? As per my knowledge it is only 12weeks (6weeks before delivery and 6 weeks after. Employee can avail 12 weeks after the delivery also, provided he has not taken any maternity leave before delivery of the baby.
