The proposal has to be presented in the Parliament in the form of a bill and has to be passed both in Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha before it becomes an Act. Till then, the existing Gratuity Act only is applicable.

Please clear me current gratuity amount cealing Rs. 3.5 L is for maximum gratuity amount or it is tax a free gartuity amount. Because it is not clear in Gratuity ACT. If any one has any notification for that please share with me.
