The Government of Karnataka last month published the draft Maternity Benefits (Amendment) Rules 2018 relating to the Creche facility. The rules are applicable to every commercial establishment in Karnataka with 50 or more employees. NASSCOM earlier sought responses from the industry and submitted its feedback (as attached) to the Government highlighting the industry concerns on provisions related to requirement of setting up Creche facilities on Ground floor, distance criteria, open air playground, multiple Crèche facilities etc.
A copy of our submission is attached for your kind reference.
