The National Assembly’s Standing Committee on Law and Justice approved a bill allowing one-month paternity leave to fathers on the birth of their new child. The father will be eligible to get a one-month leave for first three children only. The law will apply to all government and non-government institutions, but only in the federal capital.
The bill says the mother will get a six-month leave and the father will be eligible for a leave of one-month on the birth of their first child. On the birth of the second child, the mother will get a four-month leave and the father will get a one-month leave.
