Dear Alex, SINCE you have said that his last working day was 31.01.2017. Take only his last working day for Gratuity calculation.

In Gratuity Act which section indicates this????
From India, Coimbatore
As per Section 4 of the Payment of Gratuity Act 1972, Gratuity becomes payable on the date of termination of service.While on ESI benefit period one is still in service and the termination of service has happened only on 27th November 2018.

Hi Whichever took place earlier will be the date for calculation of Gratuity . Payment of Gratuity Act is not concerned as to what ESIC does to its subscribers. Thanks and Regards

Combined reading of sec 2A and 4 of POG Act shows that date of death is the date to be reckoned if employee has not resigned or employee was not terminated from last working day.

Unless there is no termination on medical grounds, the employee remain in continuous service covering the period of sickness. Hence, in this case the gratuity is payable till the date of his death.
