Your input is confusing.What is official or unofficial?
It is not a grapevine. After having passed in both the houses of parliament, the bill is sent to president of the country.
The bill converts in to Act only when president gives consent.
The payment of gratuity act has been approved by the president after parliament passed the bill. that's why it is called payment of Gratuity amendment act of 2010.Now what is left is the date of implementation which at any time govt. can notify. For this date, Govt. need not to go to parliament and president again.
Hope the things are clear to you now.
