Is gratuity applicable on professional tax? Kindly advice on Professional tax deduction and exemptions.
Professional tax and gratuity have no common link.
There are some categories and people who get benefit of tax exemption:
# Senior citizens are exempt from professional tax.
# Parent of a mentally challenged child is exempt from this tax.
# Persons or parents of children suffering from physical disability are exempt from paying professional tax.
Please check up your state rules on the subject.

No, Gratuity is not taxable under the Professional Tax. Moreover, Professional Tax is a state subject but in no way connected with Gratuity. Do not be confused between the two.
Do you have any notification clarifying that gratuity is not applicable for Professional tax?
There is no notification issued to state that Professional tax is applicable on Gratuity paid . In fact Gratuity is exempted now up to Rupees 20 lakhs.
