I want to know about the maternity leave rule in central government services. I am working with Institute of Hotel Management under ministry of tourism government of India. I am on contract (faculty). Maternity leave is not mentioned in my contract. How much leave I can get.its been 5 years over here and this time i have got 11 months contract from September to august.

  • ansMaternity leave is granted to women government employees. 1) Pregnancy: 180 days ?? Admissible only to employees with less than two surviving children. Miscarriage/abortion (induced or otherwise) : Total of 45 days in the entire service. However, any such leave taken prior to 16.6.1994 will not be taken into account for this limitation. Admissible irrespective of number of surviving children. Application to be supported by a certificate from a registered medical practitioner for NGOs and from AMA for GOs.

    The maternity leave is not debited to leave account and full pay is granted. It cannot be combined with any other leaves and counts as service for increments and pension. Woman employees having minor children may be granted Child Care Leave by an authority competent to grant leave for a maximum period of 730 days (2 years) during their entire service for taking care of up to two children., whether for rearing or to look after any of their needs like examination, sickness, etc..
