This initiative started by an Indian company which has been in demand for a long time in India is commendable. Till now there is a provision for men to get such leave in different countries. In India too, there is a demand on this for a long time. Now the country’s company Pfizer India has started this initiative. It is being seen as an example in this industry. On behalf of Pfizer India, it has been announced to implement Paternity Leave Policy for the male employees working here.

Maximum 6 weeks leave at a time

Pfizer India’s management has implemented a 12-week paternity leave policy for male employees. In this policy, a man who becomes a father can take advantage of these holidays anytime within two years from the date of birth of the child. Those applying for paternity leave will be able to get leave for at least two weeks and maximum 6 weeks at a time. That is, you cannot apply for three months leave at one go.
