Hi, I have been working for a private company for past 4 and half years. Am I eligible for Gratuity after completing 4 years and 240 days the reason I have this doubts is I never had PF deduction in my salary. Please advice. When I joined in organization HR of this company told me that you will not get PF as your salary crossed more than 10,000.00. Kindly advice me whether I am eligible for Gratuity after completing 5 years in this organization.
Thanks in Advance.

for ur knowledge gratuity is not effected by PF, yes, surely u will get gratuity if u complete ur continous service of 4yrs + 10mnyhs n 18dys of 5th yr......
Yes as per latest supreme court ruling on gratuity, you will be eligible for gratuity after completion of 4 years and 240 days. Arun Singhal
No u r not eligible for gradutiy time limit for this is 5 years, and pf limit is 6500/- if somebody is getting salary below 6500 he is eligible for pf, if he cross the salary by 6500 and above he is eligible for the same. No matter what ever is the salary
Dear Arun,

A person is eligible to get gratuity only if he had completed 5 years (except in case of death or disablement) in the organisation. 4yrs and 240 days is not the criteria for eligibility. In case of death, if an employee had worked for even one day, we need to pay gratuity presuming that the deceased employee would have continued his service for 5 yrs.

Section 4 of Payment of Gratuity Act, 1972 very clearly states that "Gratuity shall be payable to an employee on the termination of his employment after he has rendered continuous service for not less than five years, -

a) on his superannuation, or

b) on his retirement or resignation , or

c) on his death or disablement due to accident or disease:

Provided that the completion of continuous service of five year shall not be necessary where the termination of the employment of any employee is due to death or disablement".

However if you have the recent ruling of the Hon'ble S C judgement. plz do share with the team.


PF membership is not compulsory for getting gratuity. You will be eligible for gratuity after completion of 5 years in this organization.
