This paper is mostly concerned with the maternity benefits offered in India and other nations (Singapore & Sri Lanka). One-third of pregnant women in today's society work, and they face challenges that make it difficult for them to overcome health-related problems. All across the world, maternity benefit programmes have been put in place by various national governments. With a few exceptions, both the public and private sectors must adhere to this. In other words, a woman is only qualified if she has been employed by a business for at least 80 days in the previous 12 months, and her maternity leave payout is determined by her daily wage and actual absence. But for female employees receiving maternity benefits in the public and private sectors, the government's benefit provisions act will remain the same. The maternity benefit programmes truly aid in the healthy protection of the mother and her child's lives as well as in providing for her maintenance needs, such as paid time off, pay, and bonuses. She can work from home and get an extension if necessary. Both the employer and the employee have agreed to it. She will be better able to care for her unborn child as a result both during and after her pregnancy. Therefore, the goal of this study is to understand precisely how maternity benefit plans for women offer them with facilities and how they differ in different nations.
