In a Metalergical Company, his owner wants to adopt insurance policy instead of gratuity scheme. For insurance he is going to bare 50% of premium till maturity( Up to retirement of worker). The agent told that from first day anything happen with workers( Natural or accidental death) the his family will get Rs. 10 lakh /20lakh. Another important thing is that the maturity amount is more than 20 lakh which is taxfree, while maximum gratuity limit for private sector is Rs. 20 lakh only.
In gratuity scheme in case of death gratuity will be as per his service only.

Accidental or natural death the employee will get Rs.20L / Rs.10L respectively but what happens if the employee alive after his retirement? and how much insurance amount he will get in place of gratuity?
Is there any criteria or calculation which confirms that his/her salary for gratuity purpose will be so and so at the time of his/her retirement? What happens if he quits job after 5 years of services? Why employee should bear 50% premium when gratuity is available for him free of cost after 5 yrs. of continuous service.
If your company is really concern with employee welfare, cover all your employees under "Term Life Insurance with minimum coverage of Rs.10L. Group Term Life Insurance provides cover to your employees as long as they are in your employment. So think for this type of policy where you can provide subsidised contribution and deduct nominal contribution from employees with their consent.
