1. Every female employee is entitled to receive maternity benefit if she works for a continuous period of 80 days in the twelve months immediately preceding the date of her expected delivery. If the woman employee is not covered under the ESI Act, 1948 then in that case she is eligible to have maternity benefit under this Maternity Benefit Act of 1961.

2. Maternity Leave shall not be debited to the leave account. It may be combined with leave of any other kind except Casual Leave. During maternity leave, leave salary equal to last pay drawn is admissible.

The latest ruling with regard to maternity leave is that even the contractual employees are entitled to  ML for 12 weeks.
The government is considering to extend the maternity leave from 12 weeks to 24 weeks at par with the regular employees.
You are entitled to maternity leave with full pay, if your application is rejected then you can send a written representation quoting the rule in this regard.
