Hello Friends, Can anybody provide me the copy that whether Grautity Act is applicable to teacher if yes then from which date. Regds, Nehal

Recently, the act was amended in the parliament and the benefit was extended to teachers. Hence, " teacher" also comes under the definition of workmen qualifies for Gratutiy Act

To my understanding no such amendment has taken place but only bill has been presented. Therefore, teachers still remain as out of coverage of Payment of Gratuity Act. If Murugavelu has any notification apart from the proposal please post it; all of us will be benefited out of it.

Dear SK I had read your attached documents, In that The Word Teachers is not given. Regds, arihant

You may compare with the earlier difinition with this. Earlier the difinition was for specific categories i.e. clerical, managerial etc. of employees and teachers were not covered in those categories. That is why a judgement gone against the teachers. Now the categories have been removed and now all cateogories of employees except apprentice are covered by the Gratuity ACt. You may go through the Amendment Bill passed by the Parliament in which it is clearly mentioned that the objective of the amendment is to cover the teachers under the Gratuity Act keeping in view the judgement of Supreme Court of India.
Accountants, Manager (HR), Clerks are not mentioned in this amendment. It does not mean that these are not covered.
Moreover, the amendment comes into force w.e.f 03.04.1997 from the date from which educational Institutions were covered under Gratuity ACt.
A copy of Bill passed in the Parliament is attached.
