Question Maternity Benefit

I am working in a Govt. Hospital through outsource since February 2016. I am getting salary of 16928 after deduction of ESI, but this ESI deduction started from February 2017 as ESI range increased to 21000. Now, I want to avail maternity benefit, but they are saying that deduction of nine months ESI is compulsory for maternity benefit, but I have only two months of deduction. I want to know whether I come under any maternity benefit or I will get without pay leave.

Default Re: Maternity Benefit

I wish to inform you that maternity benefit may be taken by a woman if she meets contributory conditions. Eligibility of insured woman to claim maternity benefit is determined by the provisions contained in sub-rule (1) of Rule 56 of the ESI (Central) Rules, 1950. It is stated in this that an insured woman shall be qualified to claim maternity benefit for a confinement occurring or expected to occur in a benefit period, if the contributions in respect of her were payable for not less than seventy days in the immediately preceding two consecutive one or two contribution periods. If your contribution has been for 60 days then you may not be able to object to objection from ESI regarding maternity benefit. However if 70 days contribution has been there then you may quote above rule to claim maternity benefit.
