Dear Friends

My wife had recently resigned her job as a teacher in a private school in Delhi on health grounds after putting in 7+ years of continous service. She was categorically told by the School Management that she is not entitled to any Gratuity, citing some Directorate of Education directive which qoutes some para under CCS (Pensions) rules, and the fact that Teachers are not "employees" under the Labour Law.

Can somebody guide, for the benefit of all teachers, on the following points - with relevant authority that can be referred to either in a book, internet or through an attachement in this forum.?

1. Are teachers of Pvt unaided Schools, entitled to Gratuity ?
2. HC Ahemadabad had issued some order on the "employee" status of teachers due to which they were excluded from the provisions of Gratuity. What were the salient features of this order?
3. Later, SC had stayed this order pending Parliamentary discussion on the subject to make Gratuity applicable to all teachers. When was this and what is the reference of this order. Can it be referred to and can somebody post the relevant stay order on this forum.

Needless to say, virtually all Private School Teachers are lacking adequate and concrete knowledge of rule position on this important aspect. A discussion on this subject would greatly benefit all of them.

This is what I found.
We too are rather confused about whether Gratuity is applicable to Teachers in Gujarat or not.
Through the posts in this forum I understand it is applicable to Non Teaching staff inclusive of Computer Teachers, Librarians and the Heads, Coordinators etc who work for the same no. of hours as Non Teaching staff.
Can someone please update us with the latest Act / ruling or is it still an impasse ?
Do schools have to cater for Gratuity for Teachers or not?

My query is specifically for unaided private schools. I was told there was another ruling in 2014 that had stayed the implementation of Gratuity for Teachers. Does anyone have a copy of that ruling?

According to https://leicesterwea.com/, they are. The only issue is that the rule doesn't apply to every single private school. I would recommend to speak to your principal because these days, you can never be sure

Hello Everyone
I work as an HR of an Private unaided school and have been doing multiple rounds of labour court in the past few years regarding Gratuity to teachers. Recently the Govt of India has amended the Gratuity act w.e.f from 6th May 2016 i.e. the teachers retiring after the said date will be ineligible for gratuity.
Please refer the Repealing and amending act of 2016, where Gratuity to teachers have been completely repealed as a whole (amended).
I am attaching the complete guide which states that teachers were entitled for gratuity who retired or quit jobs between 3rd April 1997 to 6th May 2016.
