Gratuity is paid to those employees who have completed continous 5 years of services. In your case the fellow has not completed full 5 years so gratuity will not be payable to him.The way of calculating it is furnished below:-
from 13.12.04 to 12.12.05 is = 1 year
13.12.05 to 12.12. 06 = 1 year
13.12.06 to 12.12.07= 1 year
13.12.07 to 12.12.08 = 1 year
13.12.08 to 30.10.09= 9 mnths few days i.e. 1 year is not complete
Since 5 years are not completed therefore gratutity will not be payable.
I hope this info. suffices ur need.

If the employee has completed less than 5 years of service, generally, he is not eligible for gratuity.
However, if your Company has a separate eligiblity norm for gratuity i.e. less than 5 years service. Kindly check your company policy before finalising the matter.

he is not eligible for Gratuity , as per Gratuity act, completion of five year is required. Only 5 year not required when a person died or total disability. regards, Prof. RK Agrawal 9325860828

Gratuity would be payable if he had completed 11 months
but in this case he is not eligible for it
One more month would have made him eligible

No, the gratuity is not payable as per act but many organisations have their own policy regarding gratuity like some organisation pays the gratuity after 3 yrs or 4 yrs as per the mmendment in their trust deed with the insurance company or the company own policy
