State Government of Bihar on 6 January 2015 increased the duration of maternity leave to 180 days and also made provisions for 730 days of child care leave. Earlier, duration of maternity leave was 135 days only.

The decision was taken in a Cabinet meeting presided over by Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi.

The state government took the decision for well-being of its women employees as there was no provision for child care leave for women government employees in the Bihar Service Rules.

The 730 days child care leave will help women to attend children during their illness, examinations and to raise them up.


Limitation of the maternity and child care leave

These leaves will be granted to any women government servants for two children only during their entire service period.

Other decision made during the Cabinet meet

The state cabinet approved setting up a liquor distillation and a bottling unit at Devadi village in Bhojpur district. The units will be established by Chandigarh-based company Bihar Distillers and Bottlers at a cost of 160 crore rupees. For setting-up of two liquor units, the government also arranged 29 acres of land. These projects would provide direct employment to 320 skilled and unskilled workers.
