Your long leave has probably been treated as break in service and gratuity is paid at 2009 levels. Lack of written approval has lead to this impasse.

Gratuity is payable till resignation under the Payment of gratuity act. It is on resignation all admissibility as per Act is to be determined under section 4 of the Act. Thanks Sushil

Dear Mr Sushil, Suppose in this case the verbal leave is treated as absence without permission. After all everything is verbal and absence treated as break in service. What happens in such cases?

Dear Nathrao,
Absence without permission will have impact on determination of eligibility only and will not reduce the maximum amount of ten lakhs if employee has become eligible to draw gratuity with five years service in 2014. The emphasis is on payment of gratuity on resignation or superannuation or termination. In Gandhinagar v Shobhnaben, Gujarat HC held in 2010 that gratuity is payable till resignation.

If in any anniversary year you have worked for less than 240 days, then as per the Act you are not eligible to receive gratuity for that year. Shrikant
From India, Mumbai

After five years continuous service, an employee is eligible for gratuity and in any year if one has not put in 240 days of service then he is entitled for six months service in a year. See the provision under section 4(2) of the Payment of Gratuity Act.

Information is inadequate :
1) What is the date of resignation?
2) Whether salary or any monitory benefit was paid to you from 2009 to 2014?
3) Any notice is served by any of the party of employment?
4) What is the status of employment relationship between 2009 to 2013?
5) whether PF contribution was made by the employer for this period of dispute?
6) In case the said period was leave which sort of leave it was paid or unpaid etc.?
