Maternity Leave Rules for Women Government Employees

Women employees are eligible for maternity leaves of 180 days for maximum two surviving children. Maternity leaves can be combined with any other kind of leaves including CCL and can be taken without medical certificate up to one year in continuation. These leaves cannot be debited against leave account and the period of leave will be included in service period for increment and pension. The women employee will be given full pay during the leave period. But one should be careful not to join office back during maternity leave period as this leave can be taken in one spell at a stretch. If woman employee joins back before completing her maternity leave, it automatically gets cancelled.

Women employees are entitled for 45 days of leaves in entire service for in case of miscarriage/ abortion whether induced or otherwise but not for threatened abortion. Application needs to be supported by a certificate given by recognized or registered practitioner. This leave is admissible irrespective of number of surviving children.

I got selected for permanent job as asst professor in central govt medical college and was asked to join post medical test.

My situation:
I delivered baby last week of Apr 2015 => Currently baby is 6 weeks old and I have passed medical test => Joining date is in July 2015 which is 3 months from now
Can I go for loss of pay leave for 3 months immediately post joining?

a) Probation for permanent job (I am not currently working with them) starts as of July 2015 - 3 months from now: My medical test is cleared last week and I have appointment order as of Jul last week 2015 - 3 weeks post maternity.
b) note that I HAVE NOT JOINED yet and have to join July 2015 i.e. in 3 months
c) Can I apply for maternity leave immediately after joining in July last week for 3 months i.e. as soon as I join?
d) If c) is not possible, can I apply for loss of pay leave immediately after joining

What options do I have as I have not joined and probation starts immediately post joining?

Net-net this question is around if there is a discrimination between those that deliver baby post joining and those that deliver baby and then join?

maternity leave

Hello admin
My wife is working as a senior resident on ad hoc basis of 89 days in a Delhi govt hospital.we have applied fr maternity leave and the hospital has given leave for 12 weeks. However regular Sr,s get leave for 180 days.
My question is that can there be a discrimination between regular and ad hoc sr's.
Since the contract is of 89 days and to renew one has to join back the hospital which means the maternity leaves will lapse.

maternity leave rule when delivered before joining govt job

Sir/ Mam,

I delivered a baby on 5th April 2013 , at that time I was not working anywhere. After 1 month I got a job in state govt in 5th may 2013. after i joined i applied for maternity leave during my probationary period, my officer sanctioned ML for remaining 5 months. Now I rejoined duty after 5 months of ML in October. when I asked salary he is telling your ML is not valid so u don't get salary as well as service and more over your probationary period will be extended to that 5 months.

My questions are-
1. Now Can I change my ML letter to CCL letter to get my salary?
2.can I be eligible for CCL ?
3. If Maternity leave is meant for child well being up to 6 months age then why I m not eligible for it even after delivery?
4. is there any other way to get my service at least?
5. what will be the fate of my ML period of 5 months ? is it comes under breaking service?
