Modi announces 26-week maternity leave as he defines 'New India' as change in mindset

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has announced enhanced benefits for working women during his popular Maan ki Baat program. He announced an enhanced maternity leave benefits for expecting mothers. He announced that working women will now be given 26-week maternity leaves instead of earlier 12 weeks. The real aim of this initiative is to ensure that the expecting mother can take proper care of the newborn and ensure that they get cared properly until the time others can take care of the newborn baby.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi was addressing the 30th edition of his popular Maan ki Baat. He also said that his call for New India was a dream to change the country and take it on the road to progress. The issue of enhanced leave to expecting mothers, especially working women was hanging for a long time since there was no firm policy in this regard. Prime Minster Modi by enhancing the leave for working mothers from 12 to 26 weeks has not only tried to give some sense of relief to these mothers but has also sent a strong message to his opponents who think that he is not caring for the masses. The effect of this move will be known in some time but Narendra Modi has definitely taken a step forward in the direction of making India a better place.
