He is elegible only after completing 5 years service in an establishment.After the completion of 5 years only his elegiblity arise.
After his confirmed elegiblity only the calculation of gratuity can be made according to the provisions of Gratuity act.

Dear P Ramachandran
Thanks for your quick reply.
Let us conclude my question from another angle.
My employee has worked 240 days in the last 5th year, and he is clamming it as a full year for the purpose of eligibility for gratuity.
Is he right?

Dear M K Chopra,
Strictly according to the Payment of Gratuity act, 1972, the employee is not entitled to any gratuity because of the non completion of five years continuous service as per section 2A of this Act but according to the Judgement of the Hon'ble Madras High Court he might be claiming gratuity from you.Now it is up to you whether after going through the judgement of the Hon'ble High Court you want to give the gratuity amount or contest the case.

Dear Mr Chopra,

I know that you are raising this doubt only for inviting responses from other members. Because this issue was discussed many times in this forum or cite legal. However, once again I give my interpretation. For payment of Gratuity -

1. First of all the Payment of Gratuity Act 1972 ( please see Section 1(3)

2. The employee must under the definition Section 2 (e)

3. Gratuity shall be payable to an employee on the termination of his employerment after

he has rendered CONTINUOUS SERVICE for not less than five years. Section 4

4. CONTINUOUS SERVICE is defined in Section 2 A. If an employee has actually worked 240 days during the period of twelve calendar months preceding the date with reference to which calculation is made.

No where in the Act or Rules it is mentioned that the employee has to complete five full calendar year for becoming eligible for gratuity. Completion of 240 days can be treated as completion of one year of continuous service.

Hope this will clarify your doubt. In case of any doubt, please give the exact date of the employee joining the organisation to date on which he is terminated, number of days he actually worked during the last five years, year wise, and all information as per Section 2-A (1)
