If staff completes 6yrs 5 months of services. How to round off the total working years while calculating gratuity
From India, Bengaluru
Dear Vinutha-Nayak,
For 5 years & 5 months service, gratuity is payable for 5 years.
Please read the section 4(2) in which it is stated that for every completed year of service or part thereof in excess of six months, the employer shall pay gratuity to an employee.
What does it mean that if employee works for more than 6 month in a year, that year shall be considered as full year for payment of gratuity. Six months and less shall be ignored.

Dear Vinutha-Nayak, Akhil statment is self explanatory itself, For 6 years & 5 months service, gratuity is payable for 6 years. for 7 years completion of 240 working days is required . sumit

Dear colleague,
In the instant case, gratuity is payable for 6 years . As per the Act 6 months or more , after initeal 5 years of service, is treated as one year's service.In your case , 5 months' service will be disregarded.
Had the person completed 6 months or more, gratuity would have been payable for 7 years .

Dear Vinayak Nagarkar,
You are right. I made mistake in reading it as 5 years and 5 months and accordingly I responded 5 years. It is 6 years and 5 months so answer is 6 years. .................................................. ......................

Dear colleague,
You have stated that you have completed five years' of service. But the payslip attached shows your DOJas ०८/०१/२०१८. which is short of five years.
Gratuity is payable for five or more years of service and upon cessation of employment.
Apparently you are not yet eligible for gratuity
