Can gratuity be calculated on Allowance like H.R.A., C.A, MED. ETC.
From India, New Delhi

Hi, For the calculation of gratuity, salary includes only Basic salary and Dearness Allowance (DA). There won’t be any other components that will be considered for the calculation of gratuity.
From India, Madras

1. In our country, the original salary structure consisted of Salary (Such Salary was called Basic Salary) plus D.A. (Dearness Allowance). Where-in payment of D.A. was directly linked to Consumer Inflation Index and were variable. Therefore for all attendant benefits like Provident Fund, Employees Insurance, Gratuity, Bonus were attached to the Basic Salary.

2. The same practice was adopted by private sector but replacing D.A.(Dearness Allowance) by Special Pay.

3. Thereafter HRA (House Rent Allowance) was made exempt under Income Tax Act with certain conditions,

{HRA between 10% and 40% of Basic Salary (Incase of Metro Cities) and between 10% and 30% of Basic Salary (Incase of Other Cities) was made exempt, if the employee is staying in a rented accommodation and is paying rent equal to that or more than that.

4. Similarly later-on Conveyance Allowance of Rs. 1600/- per month were also made exempt under Income Tax Act.

Therefore the special pay was further spited in to HRA, Conveyance Allowance and Special Pay.

5. As payment other than Basic Pay plus D.A. are all under category of allowance, therefore gratuity shall be payable on Basic Pay plus D.A. only and not on any other allowance, in whatever name called/spelled. Even in above special pay is also not included in basic pay for calculation of Gratuity.
