Every employer is bound to give a gratuity amount to its employees if it employs more than 10 people. But you would get the gratuity only after completing at least 5 years in the service.
Gratuity Calculation Formula
Gratuity in India is calculated using the formula:
Gratuity = Last Drawn Salary × 15/26 × No. of Years of Service

Madhu TK Sir has hit the nail on the head.
The employer may add Gratuity to your CTC. In fact employer can add many other things to the CTC because it is just a cost metrics for the employer.
However, the key here is whether the gratuity component has been deducted from your gross? Is it part of your GROSS? if it is, then you can claim it as your right other wise it will be as per provisions of Payment of Gratuity Act.
