A. Hello sir, No one in their sane mind would deny a maternity leave to a woman. You can send the above mentioned principal a Legal Notice u/s 12 of the Maternity Benefits Act 1961 (as amended till date) with the help of an advocate. Or you can report the matter with the Ministry of Women and Child department.

A. Maternity levee is divided in to two parts Prenatal and postnatal and your case is eligible for maternity leave and benefits. Now you can lodge a complain before the labor officer and social welfare officer for action. You can also approch the dist collector for remedy.

A. Prima facie to terminate a pregnant woman when she is asking for maternity leave is illegal and the Principal can be booked under the law. But a lawyer before providing all the advice must have all the information and facts with him. You are requested to speak and consult a lawyer with all material facts and he would be in a position to help you better.
