Dear Usha,
You are 100% entitled for gratuity as per payment of gratuity act 1972 that specifies an employee should have completed 5 years for entitlement. Even, if your service is more than 6.5 years, you will be paid 7 years gratuity or if it is less than 6.5 years, you will be paid 6 years gratuity. You can also refer payment of gratuity act 1972 bare act.

Hi Ushajk75
You are 100% eligible for gratuity. And as rightly mentioned by Mr B Naresh the entitlement will be for 7 years of service.
Though the Act provides for 5 years of continuous service for entitlement to gratuity , the Madras High Court in a decision had held that if some one works for 4 years and 240 days in the fifth year , he becomes entitled for gratuity.
You may speak to your HR accordingly. In case of refusal to pay first serve them a notice and in case of no payment , make an application to the designated authority.

Also note that period of leave of absence on account of legitimate reasons like maternity, accidents etc shall not be taken into consideration while computing the 5 years continuous service.
But employer is justified in proportionately reducing the gratuity payable to the extend of the authorised period of absence .

Hi Suresh,
Your salary has nothing to do with PF? If the company employees more than 10 people the company should register himself for PF AND all employees are eligible for pf.. as per law 12% should be deducted from your basic salary towards pf and 12% of basic should be contributed by employer..

Dear Ushaji,
You have posted your query of elegibility of Gratuity.
As per section 2a of Gratuity act, you are elegible for maternity leave which will be included in the Service. Further recently Madras High court given a judgement that an employee, if he/she has worked for4 years & 240 days in the 5th year is eligible for gratuity.
I am forwarding the Madras Highcourt judgement in the PDF attachment file with this mail.
Further you can lodge your simple petition with the Regional Labour Commissioner of your area.
