Mumbai: The Bombay High Court recently voiced its concern over the ‘misuse’ of ‘maternity’ benefits by working women. The court observed that if women claim these benefits during the entire gestational period, then it would defeat the very purpose of the Maternity Benefits Act. A division bench of Justice Satyaranjan Dharmadhikari and Justice Bharati Dangre was hearing a writ petition filed by Navi Mumbai-based Laxmi Yadav (35).
