If you completed 5 yrs then you are eligible to get Gratuity. You can count your gratuity on basis of below formula.
Last drawn salary (basic salary plus dearness allowance) X number of completed years of service X 15/26.
First ask to your HR and request them to release your gratuity if they denied for that you can contact to local employee labour department and raise your complaint.

I suggest you fill up "Form I" as illustrated in the payment of gratuity act and send the same to your previous employer via registered post and email too. Give them some time to address it and follow it up timely; incase they dont respond or refuse; you can file a complaint with the local labor inspector of the region where the office falls in.
Hope it helps.

Hope you have completed all exiting/severance formalities and they relieved you by issuing official relieving letter. How about your EPF, have you withdrawn fully by closing your EPF A/c or still it's open. I'm afraid, You have to rule out any possibility of that firm treating your initial one year or so as training period and try to establish that you have not completed the statutory 5 yrs. minimum, continuous service to save their interest in this case. Also satisfy yourselves there is no break-in-service in between. Don't worry about the delay, the employer has to pay interest till such time the gratuity is finally paid irrespective of any no.of years of delay. What's important is to satisfy the conditions laid down in the Payment of Gratuity Act. Therefore time is not lost, file the forms as suggested by learned members to stalk your claim properly. It's the duty of the designated officer under the Gratuity Act to redress your grievance of unpaid gratuity to you.
