Shared Parenting must not be adopted only after separation, but infact, while the family is growing together. In a progressive development towards the upbringing of children, Paternity Leaves could be extended to share the burden that mothers face currently. This was one of the recommendations made by experts at the Final Law Review Consultation on the Maternity Benefit Act on Saturday.
The National Commission for Women (NCW) organized the final Law review consultation on the Maternity Benefit Act, 1961 and the 2017 Amendment, as per a report by ANI.
The meeting was aimed at reviewing and analysing the legislation affecting women and recommending amendments to meet any lacunae, inadequacies and shortcomings.
NCW has conducted one preliminary consultation and five regional-level consultations to relook at the Act in order to formulate specific recommendations for amendments and enhancing the outreach of the legislation.
Through this consultation, the Commission endeavoured to seek views, suggestions and opinions of experts and stakeholders from all over India.
Significant suggestions made by the panellists also included incentivising employers and sensitising the corporate sector to employ more women workers.
The experts also discussed the issue of women working in the unorganised sector, the provision of creche facilities on a case-to-case basis rather than a number of employees, the scope of incentives for employers, etc.
The Commission invited legal experts, advocates, academicians and legal experts from different fields to deliberate upon the real challenges and technical issues faced by women.
- When we speak about Men’s Rights, we also mean partnering equally with our other halves, in every possible way
- One of the key factors where Fathers never get their due, is because of the age old norm, that only a Mother can raise children
- However, in reality, Fathers have always been away at work right from the delivery of the new born, since they never got the benefit of any paternity leaves
- Even till recently, if corporates are allotting, the same are limited
- Bringing up a child right from the beginning will ensure both parents contributing equally in nurturing the little ones, and hopefully after a few years, we may not need a ministry that clubs children only with women
- Its time India moves ahead and creates laws and practices for family, and not just for the women
