Maternity Leave for Women with Child Through Surrogacy

‘Let Independent Agencies Probe Custodial Deaths’
  • The Bombay High Court on February 1st has directed the Central Railway to grant three months maternity leave to its employee who became a mother by using a surrogate.
  • The court ruled that a mother enjoys the same maternity leave benefits as any other working woman under the Child Adoption Leave and Rules.
  • The judgement said that the child cannot be left at the mercy of others just because the woman did not give birth to the child.
