2. Gratuity - depends on length of employment and the company policy on payment of gratuity.
a. If you follow the Payment of Gratuity Act, gratuity up to INR 10,00,000 can be exempt.
b. If the gratuity provision is voluntarily adopted by your company and paid prior to crossing the caveat period of the 5 year (4 year 240 days) caveat, to every employee ceasing employment, it would be taxable.
3. Leave Encashment - Taxable, in accordance with the Income tax Act, in a normal case. If the employee provides no-claim certification, it can be exempt up to INR 300,000.
