Dear Madhu,
As per me the definition of "Employee" has been already amended by Govt of Indian vide notification dated 31, December 2009, and by this definition, Teachers are being covered under preview of payment of Gratuity Act. before that in 1997 this Act was extended to Educational Institutes also.Now all kind of employees doing any kind of works are covered by this Amendment.

With the amendment in the definition of employee under the Payment of Gratuity Act, you are eligible to get gratuity. Please apply for gratuity in form I. Regards, Madhu.T.K

Dear All,
In our view, position of law has been settled; and a teacher in a school, is eligible for the gratuity if he has put in required years of continuous service of five years. After amendment of 2009, the deifinition of employee has been enlarged.
I am appending a decision of the Bombay High Court, Nagpur Bench in Writ Petition NO. 3415/2011 decided on 21.2.2014 Vidharbh Youth v. Pradip kumar. This judgment can be downloaded form the official site of the High Court.
