This bill has been passed by Loksabha, a lower house. It will go to Rajya sabha, upper house, and finally will be with President of India. After approval from President. it will be published in gazzete of India. Then it will become law. So some more wait.
"NDTV Profit:
A bill to raise the ceiling of gratuity for employees to Rs 10 lakh from Rs 3.5 lakh was passed by the Lok Sabha without discussion on Monday.
The Payment of Gratuity (Amendment) Bill 2010, introduced by Minister of State for Labour Harish Rawat last month, was passed by a voice vote as AIADMK and some CPI(M) members trooped into the well raising slogans.
The bill seeks to amend the Gratuity Act to enhance the amount of gratuity payable to an employee from Rs 3.5 lakh to Rs 10 lakh.
The legislation was brought following demands from trade unions and others to remove the ceiling or increase the maximum payable amount, which was fixed in 1997."
