Abstract : Drawing on to the existing rationale behind the maternity benefits bill recently passed, this paper analyse the potential impacts of inserting a provision for paternity leave in India on firms and society. Paternity leave is not legally mandatory to comply with but in order to encourage gender equality both at home and at workplace, it is required to challenge the age old conventional notion. Though it’s the mother who gives birth to child, father is the one to look for emotional support and he is equally required to bond with child. It is just a conventional preconception of the people that strengthens the patriarchal gender roles. Thus, insights into this issue is drawn by examining the existing laws and literature available for paternity benefits to an employee. Keywords - Paternity Leave,Gender Roles, Conventional Preconception, Equality
