A. Dear Ganesh Kachare,
Better talk to the employer or the Office she is working.
But the principle is
The Maternity Benefit Amendment Act has increased the duration of paid maternity leave available for women employees from the existing 12 weeks to 26 weeks.
Payment Rules During Maternity Leave in India: ... Apart from 12 weeks of salary, a female worker is entitled to a medical bonus of 3,500 Indian rupees. Under the National Food Security Act 2013, pregnant women and lactating mothers areentitled to receive maternity benefit of at least Rs. 6,000.
