Did you explain the same situation to your current management. They need to understand that when third party like LIC is involved they need not take your gratuity as a liability. As LIC has transferred your claim LIC will pay you accordingly. your employer just have to fill the form with your first DOJ & let LIC decide how much you are eligible for. What you can do is Go to concern LIC office and inquire about your details. and convey the same to your employer.

2. Having said that, since equitable transfer of interest has taken place which indicates that it is a case transfer between group cos, the date of joining in the 1st Co therefore, should be reckoned as date of joining for deciding the eligibility of gratuity.
3. LIC, or for that matter, non of the Insurer, can settle any gratuity claim directly in favor of outgoing employee. Gratuity Trust or in the absence of gratuity Trust, The Employer, will be the disbursing point .
4. If you are very sure of equitable transfer of interest having taken place, then the 'date of joining' in LIC database must be the 'date of joining' of the 1st Co. This will give you a clear picture as to how both these Cos have treated you. If the 'DOJ' in LIC record is what you are claiming for, then you have got every scope of getting the claim & if the 2nd Employer does not agree, you can take the legal recourse. (but only after getting clarity with proof on all the above points...)
