I retired as a Government Medical College faculty at the age of 55 yrs- the age of retirement in Kerala Government service. joined a Private Medical College as Professor on a regular basis on consolidated salary.Retired after 15 1/2 yrs of service .During the last three years of service payment was on a regular scale and not consolidated.
Salary disbursal for Part of my service was titled 'Professional fee' with IT deduction @ 10% of total emoluments disbursed as Professional fee
I did not make any PF contribution during the period of employment for 15 1/2 yrs in the establishment. The establishment is governed by EPF scheme for other employees.I had drawn Gratuity @ 2.5 lacs on retirement from Government service in 2002.There was no contributory Provident Fund Scheme in Government service during my tenure of service but only employees contribution which was disbursed at the time of retirement.
Kindly clarify whether I am eligible for gratuity as my duration of service in the establishment is more than 5 years.
How many years in Pvt service did you draw a salary?
You are entitled for gratuity from Pvt service.
Discretely consult the area labour commissioner or an advocate specialising in labour law.
What does your employer say about gratuity?
