KK!HRYes, you can stake claim for gratuity from the employer, as well as any other dues payable to you. You may write to them, if the answer is not on the affirmative you may address the claim to the Controlling Authority under the Payment of Gratuity Act 1972 (i.e., the local Labour Officer) and follow up with him. He has the legal authority to get the gratuity paid to you.

monkey-singhActually at the moment, the act only specifies five years of continuous service. There is no elaboration on whether less than 5 years can get rounded off to five. They can deny you gratuity on the basis of that. Now this 6 months and 8 months get counted as one year for the time spent after the five years of service.
