As mentioned by the learned member the Gratuity becomes payable upon your exiting the company in this instance. Whatever maybe the idea behind change of names every once in a while by your employer, you try to send an email asking for the Gratuity payment and the other formalities that has to be completed. Be courteous and try to exit in a diplomatic manner. If there is no indication of any payment coming forth after the due period of 1 month after your exit, try to send in another letter/email asking for the process taken up and likely paying time. Make sure to keep all your correspondence on record just in case. Ultimate resort would be to intimate and go to the Labour Officer locally and take up the issue along with the details.
Thanks and Regards

Change in the name of an orgaization or its constitution is a mere cosmetic change and such a change, ipso facto, cannot have any adverse impact on the existing service conditions of its employees.
The Companies Act doesn't have any such classification of the registered companies as "group company" though such a term is loosely used to denote independent units of business entities under one and the same business house like the Tata, Birla, TVS groups for the sake of common identity and image promotion.
Coming to the periodic attempt of changing the name of a particular unit by the management, it is a valid point to ponder over as a measure of precaution from the perspective of continuity of services of its employees. Better keep all the documents relating to your employment intact and in order. Do not yield to any pressure for resignation letters whenever such name change occurs.
