My wife works as a permanent teacher in Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan which is an autonomous body under MHRD. Now, she has completed 1 year of service in Sangathan out of the probation period of 2 years. We have 2 children already. She is due for delivery of our third child on 10.5.19.When she asked her principal for maternity leave, he said that she is not eligible for maternity leave as she already has two children. We told him that there is provision of maternity leave of 12 weeks after two children in Maternity benefit (Amendment) Act, 2017. But he is saying there is nothing mentioned about it in CCS(leave) rules. We have shown the judgement of Uttarakhand high court regarding birth of third child but he is still declining. Also, I saw an order regarding providing maternity leave to guest teachers in Delhi which also gives maternity leave of 12 weeks after two children. Kindly help us in this regard.
