Though the Payment of Gratuity Act has not been amended but as per the latest Supreme Court ruling, you are eligible for gratuity.

Hi sheeba ..
As per the Gratuity Act , eligiblity for gratuity is 4 years + 240 days in the 5th Year. Since you have completed 8 month in the fifth year means ( 8 month X 30 Avg.days per month = 240 days ) you are eligible to get the Gratuity.

Dear Sir,
You have to complete full 5 years of service for gratuity purpose.
In case of Madras State, 4yrs-6 months above will be counted as 5 years of service because
the High Court gave verdict like that.

Hi, Thoough you have completed 4 yrs and 8 months, it will be treated as 5 years continuous service and hence, you are eligible for Grauity Claim.

This is for kind information that not only Madras High court but also the Hon. Supreme Court has given a judgment confirming that if the employee has worked for 240 days in the 4th year, he is eligible for gratuity.
Though the Payment of Gratuity Act has not been amended but denying any employee gratuity if he has worked for 4 years and 240 days may create future litigations for the organization.
