Hello Mr. Shyam Agrawal,
My company wants more time to decide on my eligibility.When I got back to them about an estimated time, they re not ready to commit on any time line. My PF was credited only last month (its 8 months since I quit).Now I am not sure if there is a timeline within which the company should pay or I should claim. Please advice as to where I need to claim the amount? My Employer or deputy comm of labour authority?
Any tips is greatly appreciated.
Thank you, Anu

Dear Anurao,

Gratuity is payable to you by your former employer. Therefore, please lodge claim with your former employer for payment of gratuity in the prescribed form which you can find in the printed book of Payment of Gratuity Act, 1972. You can also download it from the website. If you cannot lay hands on it, please revert to me. My personal email ID is <shyaam.agrawal@gmail.com> . You may make use of this ID and contact me. Time limit for payment of gratuity by the former employer is 30 days from the date of receipt of application from the former employee. Luckily, there is no time limit for the employee to file the application. Ordinarily, the employee is expected to file his claim for payment of gratuity within last one week of his/her service and get the payment on the date of his exit from the employer firm. However, the employer can delay the payment upto 30 days. After this period of 30 days, the employer is bound to pay interest to the former employee on the total amount of gratuity payable. If the interest is not paid simultaneously, the employee can demand it separately. Rate of interest is as decided by the Commissioner of Labour who has powers of appallate authority. The Commissiner of Labour comes in picture only after the employee fails to settle his claims amicably and files a complaint against his former employer and not otherwise. For lodging a complaint, an employee must have something in his hand e. g. proof that his rightful dues have been denied by the employer. To have this, he must first lodge a claim for his dues.

Thanks and regards,
