Hi Team,
We would like to know whether it is compulsory to provide receipt to employees from HR Dept, if employees have submit the gratuity form.
We require your inputs in this as employees have already filled and submitted their forms to us.
Regards,

Though there is no provision under the Gratuity Act or central rules thereunder to give any such receipt of having received the application, the employer under Central Rule (8)shall within 15 days of the receipt of application nevertheless inform the employee in Form L specifying the amount of gratuity is payable to him.The question therefore may arise as to the date from which the 15 days need to be computed. Therefore it is prudent administratively to at least acknowledge the receipt of application. It is not necessary that every thing need to be provided byr the statute and the employer can follow good conventions and prudent administrative practices that will advance the objectives of a beneficial legislation like Gratuity Act.

Supriya Madam may please specify whether her query is for nomination forms submitted by her existing employees or by applications submitted by her former employees for payment of gratuity after completion of more than 5 years service.

thanks for the input Mr. Saikumar.
During the pre-joining process we also fill the nomination form from employees. This we are asking for
So do we need to provide them the receipt against the nomination form.

Dear Supriya Patil,
Section 6 of the Payment of Gratuity Act,1972 provides that each of the employees, who has completed one year of service shall submit their nomination in the prescribed form (in duplicate) in favour of one or more members of his family.Form-F has been prescribed under the Payment of Gratuity (central) Rules.(copy attached). If at the time of making a nomination the employee has no family, the nomination may be made in favour of any person or persons but if the employee subsequently acquires a family, he has to fill up fresh nomination in favour of any member of his family as defined under Section 2(h) of the Act.
As regards your query as to whether it is compulsory to provide receipt to employees is concerned, it is clarified that there is no provision to provide receipt to employees rather you need to provide a copy of the Form-F to the employees after having accepted the nomination.

Ms.Supriya
The Maharashtra Gratuity Rule(6) under the Gratuity Act requires an employee to submit the nomination form in form-F in duplicate after taking proper receipt if delivered to the employer in person the employee. therefore you need to give reciept of having received the nomination form.
