After completion of 5 years service additional more than 6 months counted for one year and less than 6 months ignore for calculating service period,we are bound to implement this formula as per gratuity Act.So the 5.7 years shall be counted for 6 years ,not five years.

In gratuity act, for 6 months continuous service is defined by 120 days working including leave, weekly off, paid holiday, absent without leave. In such scenario even on 5.4 years, staff eligible for 6 years gratuity. Needs clarity on it.

Dear Manisha,
You will get gratuity for 5 years i.e.
Basic+DA x 15/26 x 5 = your gratuity amount. You have mentioned that you are getting consolidated salary of Rs.11,525/- (is there any bifurcation such as Basic, HRA, other allowance or any other allowance? if yes, you will get gratuity on Basic salary x above formula) if not, your gratuity will be as under:
11525 x 15/26 x 5 = 33,245 based on your above statement.
Regards,
Suresh
