Two/three cases in various states have given some rulings of 4 years 240 days in fifth year of service but it does not become a license to serve 4 years 240 days and quit to ask for gratuity.
Any person in those 2 States where Honble HC has given the rulings regarding gratuity will probably have to court and/or Labour department with a complaint to get gratuity on completion of 4 years 240 days continuous service.
The person should have completed 5 years and then left,after all in this case person had completed more than 300 days of service in 5th year.
