An ad-hoc female professor of Delhi University from Aurobindo college filed a plea to Delhi high court seeking response from DU to provide maternity leave to its ad-hoc female professors.

In her plea she objected that the university is not providing her maternity leave of 6 months as per Maternity Benefit Act. She stated that she wasn’t getting the relief due to the fact that she is an ad-hoc teacher and not a permanent one.

She also laid stress on the fact that the Supreme Court had held that maternity leave should be available to all the female professors no matter what type of employment they are in, permanent or contractual. Taking note of this fact Justice Suresh Kait held that the professor was entitled to maternity leave and instructed the lawyer for DU to take actions for the same.

The woman emphasised in her plea the fact that she expected her delivery on 22 February¬† and was sending many representations to the University since 4th January seeking grant of maternity leave.She gave birth to her baby on February 3 and was on leave since then. She didn’t receive any pay as the Delhi University was not responding to her requests, her lawyer told the court.

The hearing of this matter will now take place in court on April 10.
