Maternity leave norms relaxed

The Tamilnadu Government had originally granted maternity leave of 90 days to women employees in it’s service in the year 1993 It was revised to 180 days after a gap of 20 years in the year 2013. It was further enhanced  from 180 days to 270 days in the year 2016  Now the rules have been relaxed and women employees of the Tamilnadu Government will be eligible to get maternity leave even if they joined service after a recent  delivery.
Earlier, women employees who were yet to become permanent were allowed to avail only their earned leave in lieu of maternity leave. This relaxed rule will stand to benefit many women employees. The government had also clarified in 2018 that women would be entitled to maternity leave for the second delivery also if the first delivery resulted in birth of twins.
