Dear HR Professionals

As we are all aware that every employee is eligible for payment of gratuity after completion of 5 years continuous service. And also the employee should be work for 240 days in a every year to get Gratuity for that year. In this regard my doubt is about the calculation of 240 days, in which what days we will be treated as actually working days. I understood as per Payment of Gratuity act,1972 the following days shall be treated as working days for calculation of 240 days. The formula as folows.
FORMULA I :
Actual Working days + laid-off days + earned leave + Maternity leave = 240 days ( 240 days or more than 240 days we have pay gratuity other wise less than 240 days there is no need pay gratuity for that year. )

1. Actual working days as per attendance abstract.
2. laid-off days under an agreement or as permitted by standing orders.
3 Days on leave with wages ( Earned leave)
4. Absent days due to temporary disablement caused by accident arising out of and in the course of employment.
5. In the case of a female, Maternity Leave days ( Not exceed twelve weeks)

FORMULA II :

II. Other than the above procedure i came to my notice the following procedure which is following in one organization to calculate 240 days for payment of Gratuity.

TOTAL WORKING DAYS (365 DAYS ) - LOP DAYS - ABSENT DAYS = 240 DAYS
( As per this formula 240 or more than 240 days has come he is eligible to get payment of gratuity for that year and as per this formula days will come less than 240 days he is not eligible to get gratuity for that year. is this practice correct or Wrong ? as per my opinion this is wrong as per gratuity act. PL suggest me correct procedure.

In addition to the above formula I my doubt is that the sick leave and LOP ( Authorized absence without wages ) should be included as working days for calculation of 240 days. PL CLARIFY.

I WOULD THANK FULL IF YOU PROVIDE ACTUAL AND CORRECT PROCEDURE FOR CALCULATION OF 240 DAYS FOR PAYMENT OF GRATUITY. IS THERE ANY SUPREME COURT OR HIGH COURT JUDGMENTS ON THIS TOPIC. IF ANY PL PROVIDE ME THE SAME.

if company is not covered in payments of gratuity act ,then he may also give gratuity at his own interest ...gratuity is a kind of gift from employer to his employee..if there exceed 10 person on any day during preceeding 12 months then government impose payment of gratuity act at that time, it is compulsory for employer to pay gratuity maximum 1000000 but if employer wants to pay more then he can do so....

I am a student of TILS,pursuing my final year BLM:
240 days gratuity calculation as we know,
Total days in a year(365)-all saturday and sunday(104)-National and festival holiday(9)-CL or EL(12)
So we get 365-125,which gives us 240.(Note:I have doubt whether CL or EL is considered,please verify)
