Entitlement of gratuity
Rule is 5 years continuous service.
People are going by one Honble Court judgment of Madras high Court,but law has not been amended to reduce period from 5 years.
If you take the chance of quitting after 4.8 years,chances are you will not get gratuity and will have to approach Labour Commissioner,Court etc spending time and money.
