The Maternity Benefit (Amendment) Act, 2017 received the assent of President of India in March 2017. The related Maternity Benefit Bill was passed by both houses of the parliament in the same month. Besides revising paid maternity leave to 26 weeks from 12 weeks earlier, the new law mandates that companies with more than 50 employees provide a Daycare or Crèche facility within a prescribed distance from the workplace.
Creating an onsite daycare for your employees is now a business need. Having an onsite childcare facility allows you to reap the benefits of increased productivity, reduced absenteeism and increased loyalty along with compliance with government policies and laws.
