Female workers are entitled to paid nursing breaks (at least one hour or two 30-minute breaks) for the period during which she actually nurses her child or six months, whichever is the lesser. The breast-feeding/nursing breaks can be combined with the normal breaks an employee receives. However, the grant of such break is to be done without disrupting the normal production process in an enterprise.
