Women may get maternity leave for 26 weeks; Bandaru Dattatreya may table bill today

Labour minister Bandaru Dattatreya may table the much-awaited amendment to Maternity Benefit Act, 1961 bill in Rajya Sabha on Tuesday, paving way for 26 weeks of maternity leave to working women. 

Move is also aimed at providing 12 weeks of maternity leave to commissioning mothers and introducing an enabling provision of "work from home" for nursing mothers. The changes proposed by the labour ministry have been recently approved by the Cabinet, a senior labour ministry official told ET. 


Since these changes proposed to the Act are women friendly the ministry is hopeful that the amendment bill will sail through the Upper House. Following its passage in Rajya Sabha the bill will be tabled in Lok Sabha where the Modi government enjoys a majority.
