Hi

For availing Gratutity, an employee should completed Min 5 years of continuous service in an organisation. For employees below 5 years of service, no employer is liable to provide Gratuity....

More over Gratuity means:an Exgratia amount ie, an amt given in a gratitude from the employer for any employee towards his good service rendered for the company..

Gratuity can be paid only after completion of 5 years of service with the same organisation.. It is contributed @4.8% of Basic salary per annum.. Regards, Amit Seth.

The formula for the calculation of the gratuity amount is (((Basic+D.A.)*15)/26)*No. of years of service. Kindly revert if the formula is not clear!! Cheers! Shringarika.

Hi,

Gratuity will be applicable for employees who have completed 5 years of continuous service and above in the same organization.

Formula for calculating gratuity is

((Basic + DA)*15/26)*No. of years of service which includes completion of 6 months of service also.

Hi Rajesh,

Kindly help me in clarifying my doubts on the above stated formulla.

According to the formulla stated above the gratuity of an employee earning 15 k per month say after 5 yrs would be Rs. 1125000(15000*15*5= 1125000)

But he would be payed just 3.5 lacs as gratuity as Max. Gratuity payable under the Act is Rs. 3,50,000/- (w.e.f. 24-9-1997)

Kindly clarify

Regards,
Tandeep
