As per Maternity Benefits Act that you can download from the thread mentioned above( and other threads mentioned in it)company has provided you the leave.


To provide more than the leave stipulated in the Act or not is discretion of the employer.


The rate of the maternity benefit is also defined in the Act and company can not  provide less than that.


The maternity benefit of prior to pregnancy delivery has to be provided in advance upon receiving information of pregnancy from employee and post delivery  upon receiving information that employee has delivered a child.
