There is a general concern voiced by all that because of the increase in the maternity leave as per the now policy by the govt., the employers would discriminate against women and avoid hiring them - as this would increase their cost of manpower.
The solution being offered is to revise the scale downwards.

However, my appeal is to come up with a policy that gives equal leave - maternity/paternity to both genders on the birth/adoption of a child. Thsi may be 12 or 20 or 26 weeks. It should be equal for both men and women. With this, we would achieve a two fold benefit :

1. Now, maternity/paternity leave would be just like LTA/PPF all employees would be eligible for it. So, while overall cost for a business would go up - it would be a part of the employee welfare and work-life balance scheme. Women would no longer be discriminated against and avoided for hiring.

2. The society would be given a message tht both genders are responsible for the upbringing of a child right from infancy and not just the mother. This would make a huge impact for women equality at home and in the workplace.

We know that a child's development starts right at infancy - in terms of its social and emotional needs too. For a healthy society, it is important to recognise the importance of child care by the parents themselves and plan/incentivise that - rather than leave it to the discretion of the individual or let their decisions be led by their financial emergencies.

Please sign this petition so we may have a healthy society and empowered women. And of course more loving and involved fathers.

(We could consider capping this benefit at upto two kids if there is general consensus on that).
All these years and in private sector, no such leaves are there. Only in Government, people blackmail the Governments and the Governments also acceed their demand. Let us not be too much selfish more

In India for the past 40 to 50 years nucleus family system have came in to existence and hence there are no one to take care children newly born after the delivery . Hence women who deliver cannot go on leave endlessly for months together. Hence husbands do require to remain at home and take of the newly born children. About 40 back I had bitter experience when my friend's working wife in GOI PSU office did not allow maternity leave for more than 3 months totally. Even they did not allow her to go on medical leave and asked her to resign the job. Earlier he took long leave for 1 month at a time to take care of the child. As this did not worked out she had to resign the job. In view of these problems husbands should also be given PATERNITY LEAVE FOR EQUAL NUMBER OF DAYS. more
