I am working in BVFCL, Namrup which is a Central Govt. Undertaking. I had given a written application to the personnel deptt. if I can avail 135 days maternity leave period based on DPE guidelines (as downloaded from the internet and enclosed with the application). But I was told that the Corporation shall grant such leave based on the MB Act & Rules applicable to the State Govt. which is 90 days only.
However, according to my knowledge, all other lady employees working in the PSUs in the State (like OIL, NTPS,etc) and other State Govt. Organizations are entitled for at least 135 days maternity leave. Moreover, in many cases, our organization follow DPE Guidelines published from time to time.
Therefore, I kindly request you to advice how I can claim 135 days maternity leave period like my fellow lady employees in the neighbouring PSUs.

How will i get to kno if the maternity leave period in the MA Act&Rules of Assam govt. has been enhanced to 135 days! I totaly agree wid Mr. Dhingra that Board has to approve any changes that is to be adopted in the leave rules. But is so unfortunate that since the Corporation did not hav any maternity case since almost 10 yrs., nobody bothered to place any related changes in the Board meetings. And due to this, new employees like me hav to suffer and go thru such dilema at this critical hour! anyways, thanks to all the experts for ur valuable advice.
