"To provide all kinds of support to their pregnant wives, all Tripura men employees will get seven days' paternity leave from now onwards," Chief Minister Manik Sarkar told reporters after a cabinet meeting Tuesday.

The leave facility would be applicable for the empoyee's first two children.

Earlier this year, the state government increased the paid maternity leave for pregnant working women from three to six months.

"To get fit with all physical conditions, including with nutritious strength, maternity leave had recently been increased from three months to six months for all working pregnant mothers in Tripura," Sarkar said.

The cabinet also decided to provide government jobs to 500 physically challenged educated youth.
