details are:

Dear Ashima, It depends on the sate where you are. The rules change from state to state. Please mention the state.

Thanks Bhandhavi for replying back. I was working in bangalore i.e. karnataka.
Any help/ guidance would be appreciated. My office people said only when I complete 4years and 8months, i would become eligible.

Hi, If you have completed 4.5 years and above you are eligibile for gratuity . after 4.5 years the remaining period is to be rounded off for calculation . Regards Rajeev Dixit

Hi Rajeev, Thanks for the update! Is it possible to send some supporting document for the same? I can show it to my HR and request for clarification. Regards, Ashima

Dear Ashima
The Act says that fraction of a half day should be considered as a full day and less should be ommited.
If you have completed 4 years & 6 Months it means you have completed fraction of half yar so it will be treated as a full year. Means 4.6= 5 Years.
suppose If you have completed 4 Years 3 Months the you have not compleated fraction of year means its less that fraction of half means it should be ommited. means 4.3 = 4 Years.
So you are eligible for gratuity.
