Interpreting Section 4(6)(b)(ii) of the Payment of Gratuity Act, the Supreme Court in its order dated 14.8.2018 (copy attached) has held that forfeiture of gratuity on the ground of misconduct which constitutes an offence involving moral turpitude, is permissible only if he is convicted by a court of competent jurisdiction for the said offence.
The bench of Justice Kurian Joseph and Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul (in Union Bank of India vs. CG Ajay Babu) also observed that forfeiture of gratuity is not automatic on dismissal from service; but it is subject to sub-Sections (5) and (6) of Section 4 of the Payment of Gratuity Act, 1972.

Thanks Mr Agrawal for sharing the information
In most of time many people asked to this forum, whether he is eligible for Gratuity as rendered 4 years and 6,7,8&9....... months.
Here in this order of the Supreme Court clearly mentioned in point No 9 that ; " rendered conteneous services not less than FIVE Years".

Dear Prabhat,
Gratuity is payable on continuous service of 5 years, Contiguous service means 240 days in year . 4 years and 240 days is eligible for grauity. Honorable supreme court does not comment of existing law. they just interpreted it.
