    Most of the software companies will have their own employee benefit plans which also include maternity leave plan and it may range from 3-4 months as per the company norms. The HR of the company is the right person to guide you in this case as you need to fill various forms in order to apply for the maternity leave and you also need to consult with your reporting manager for the same.

    No its nothing like that, maternity leaves are applied to all the sectors of profession by the Indian government.According to Indian government act of 1961, you will get 6 weeks of maternity leaves without any deduction in salary.These 6 weeks are during the time of delivery and maternity leaves are paid leaves.You can easily apply for these leaves by pre informing your manager or boss and you can provide a application or letter for that with medical report, if necessary.
    So you can forward a letter for the same and can have 6 weeks or 42 days leave without any deduction in salary or you can also say that as paid maternity leaves for 6 week.

    hello mam,
    maternity leave is available also with the software company. You can get maximum leave of 12 weeks(approximately 3 months). Now leave policy will also depend on your company,according to its rules and regulations.
    If you follow the steps for maternity leave under the company's rules you will get the same.

    Hello,

    Every company have the leave plan for the employee.

    It depends from company to company.

    Many companies give the maternity leave for 9 full months some gives for less.

    The best possible way to find that out is to talk to your HR manager about it.

    He/She will tell you about it.

    But one thing is for sure every company has maternity leaves .

    -All the best

    It is a kind of misnomer that software companies or any other does havethat 'maternity leave' clause excluded from their policies.

    #Maternity leave is granted by all PSUs and Private limited companies. Some large Public Sector Unit and Private limited companies provide their employees with day care facility itself in their premises and others also permit the employees to serve from home.
    *The duration for which such leaves are granted depends on the agency's policy or your application,it can be for 80 days(3 months) or 190 days (6 months).
    You just need to submit a duly filled in application with a letter. But remember this leave should be taken in a stretch as the company won't entertain you after you join again. So apply for the same as per your requirement.
    I hope this helps.

    6 weeks pre and post delivery you can opt for maternal leave,
    Or you can take 3 months leave, you need to apply in the prescribed format in the companies leave manual.
    You can also have six months leave if your company allows it.
    But some companies provide work from home option after the 3 months,
    You will get full salary during this period.
    Maternity leave is regulated by government and this applies to all govt registered companies.

    Hi,

    Inorder to apply for maternity leave,you need to talk to your HR first.
    After that from the expected date of delivery let it be 6 weeks prior date .
    In such scenario, apply for leave upto that time and I think company will definitely pay you for those 6 weeks.
    Channelize the things,it would definitely help out.

    No its nothing like that, maternity leaves square measure applied to any or all the sectors of profession by the Indian government. in keeping with Indian government act of 1961, you may get six weeks of maternity leaves with none deduction in remuneration. These six weeks square measure throughout the time of delivery and maternity leaves square measure paid leaves. you'll basically apply for these leaves by pre informing your manager or boss and you'll give a application or letter for that with study, if necessary.

    therefore you'll forward a letter for an equivalent and may have six weeks or forty days leave with none deduction in remuneration otherwise you may say that as paid maternity leaves for six week.

    Most of the code firms can have their own worker profit arranges that conjointly embrace maternity leave plan and it is going to vary from 3-4 months as per the corporate norms. The unit of time of the corporate is that the right person to guide you in the work of this case as you would like to fill numerous forms so as to make use of for the maternity leave and you furthermore might got to speak to your reportage manager for an equivalent.

    Hi,

    Its totally depends on companies leave policies. There are different leave policies in different-different companies.

    As you are working in Software Company, so I would like to let you know that in each software firm you would be eligible to get 3 months leave as maternity leaves. You can increase your leaves also, if you have some other leaves in your account. You can merge your other leaves also with the maternity leaves. Also if required you can take Leave without Pay also.

    But to know more about the policy, you can contact with your HR. They will let you know in detail about the same.

    Hello Mam,
    Apart from your usual leave you are eligible for this special leave (maternity leave) and it does not matter whether its government sector or private sector.yeah the leave duration varies from company to company,in government sector its usually 3-6 months but in private sector its1-1&1/2 months.
    its very easy to apply for this leave ,and no one can deny you this leave . you just decide when you want to take leave (as you have maximum of 30-45 days of leave) take your leave wisely.apart from this you need some extra leave then you can take sick leave and apart form this you ca take from your usual leaves few days
    in urgent case you can take few more days but that will be counted AS LOP.
    Thank YOu.
