The maternity leave availed during the tenure of service is part and parcel. The leave under MB is to be considered as conteneous service not as break of service. The completion of 5 yrs of service by the employee is entitiled for gratuity.

Under Section 2(c) of the Payment of Gratuity Act “Continues Service” means uninterrupted service and includes service which is interrupted by sickness, accident, leave, lay-off, strike or a lock-out or cessation of work not due to any fault of the employee concerned whether such uninterrupted or interrupted service was rendered. Sundays, weekly holidays and national or festival holidays are to be included in the computation of the period of continuous service under Section 2A of the Act As such in the instant case the employee is entitled for gratuity.
