From India, Calcutta
The MD of an establishment is eligible for Gratuity provided he had drawn SALARY from the establishment in which he is share holder. Being an employee he should have signed in the (daily)Muster roll and (monthly)salary Register of the establishment. Other tests like contribution to EPF, naming in monthly returns etc shall also be made so as to decide whether he is an 'employee' eligible to claim gratuity. If he satisfies these tests, then certainly he is eligible for gratuity and he will get gratuity subject to a maximum of Rs 3.5 lakhs.

Mr.Madhu T.K.
I have read the referred section [Sec 2 (f)(iii)]. But reads about the meaning for Employer. Whereas, section 2 (e) tells about the employee. Where I need a clarification, whether the "such person is employed in a managerial or administrative capacity" refers to Director/Managing Director or till the level of CEO only.
My question is, any specification in the Gratuity Act for payment of gratuity to its Director or Managing Director [Whether if he holds any share in that company or not]? Is a Director eligible to draw the Gratuity?

From India, Madras
The provisions relating to approved Gratuity Funds are se tout in Part 'C' of the Fourth Schedule of the Income-Tax Act, 1961 and part XIV of the Income-tax rules, 1962.
As per Rule 102 of the same - Admission of director to a fund-restricted to those owing not more than 5% of voting rights
