Payment of Gratuity Act - Amendments 2010

abhiishere Started The Discussion:


The Cabinet on Thursday approved an amendment to the Gratuity Act to raise the ceiling from Rs 3.5 lakh to Rs 10 lakh. The Bill to amend the Act will now go to Parliament, a government official told FE.
Every salaried person, who has completed five years of government or private sector service, is eligible for half a month's salary as gratuity for every completed year of service. But the gratuity pay of those with higher salaries is now limited at Rs 3.5 lakh. The proposed amendment raises this to Rs 10 lakh. Every employer with more than ten salaried workers is mandated to provide gratuity to the eligible employees. Many companies, however, do not keep the gratuity liability adequately funded. That is, they make provisions for future payment, but do not set aside funds towards the future payment. Listed companies are expected to disclose their gratuity liability.
Meanwhile, the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) approved a proposal of India Infrastructure Development Fund Ltd (Mauritius) to raise contributions from international investors and invest in the India Infrastructure Development Fund. The proposal, earlier approved by the FIPB, will result in FDI exceeding Rs 750 crore.
The Cabinet approved the proposal of the shipping ministry to declare Andaman and Nicobar set of ports as major port and establish the Andaman and Nicobar Port Trust with its headquarters at Port Blair.
