Gratuity ceiling is Rs. 1000000/- Lacs. Beyond 10 lacs also can be paid depend on the employer.
Upto this Gratuity is TAX free, beyond this it would be taxable as per the IT tax slab.

Hello Kunal,
As per my knowledge
There is no limit for Paying gratuity to Employee, the ceiling limit for Exemption in Income tax at the time of retirement is 10lac Rs before retirement gratuity amount is fully taxable.
seniors request to put more lights in this point.

Hi, Retirement criteria is not there for tax deduction, IF gratuity amount exceed Rs. 10 Lac it would be tax able. Rgds/Jitender

I want to add further. If gratuity calculated as per Gratuity Act is 8 lakhs and the employer pays addition 2 lakhs under some internal scheme(total gratuity payment would be 10 lakhs) then the additional payment of 2 lakhs will attract income tax provisions. Am I right?

Hi Please refer the attachment it is not like that as you mentioned. Words Three Lacs Fifty Thousand substituted by Words Ten Lacs. Rgds/Jitender

Whichever is lower.

Dear all,
Gratuity payment, the term means it is a payment of gratute. Since the payment is from employer to employee, the same is legalised and
Payment of Gratuity Act came into force, as per which the maximum limit of payment is upto Rs.10 lacs.(tax free payment).
As the same is payment of gratute, there is no restriction on the part of employer for making over and above 10 lacs, but such payment
shall attract tax.
