Hi
For availing Gratutity, an employee should completed Min 5 years of continuous service in an organisation. For employees below 5 years of service, no employer is liable to provide Gratuity....
More over Gratuity means:an Exgratia amount ie, an amt given in a gratitude from the employer for any employee towards his good service rendered for the company..

The formula for the calculation of the gratuity amount is (((Basic+D.A.)*15)/26)*No. of years of service. Kindly revert if the formula is not clear!! Cheers! Shringarika.

Hi Rajesh Thats a very good presentation of the answer. It’ll be really helpful for the one who is a layman on this topic. Cheers! Shringarika

Hi,
Gratuity will be applicable for employees who have completed 5 years of continuous service and above in the same organization.
Formula for calculating gratuity is
((Basic + DA)*15/26)*No. of years of service which includes completion of 6 months of service also.

Hi Rajesh,
Kindly help me in clarifying my doubts on the above stated formulla.
According to the formulla stated above the gratuity of an employee earning 15 k per month say after 5 yrs would be Rs. 1125000(15000*15*5= 1125000)
But he would be payed just 3.5 lacs as gratuity as Max. Gratuity payable under the Act is Rs. 3,50,000/- (w.e.f. 24-9-1997)
Kindly clarify

It is very simple..
Basic+DA*15(days)/26*No of years (not less than 5 years)
Note*
1)7 days in case of seasonal establishment.
2) In case of death and permanent disablement the employer has to pay the gratuity even before 5 years
3) Under Gratuity Act 1972, now the maximum gratuity amount payable is Rs. 10,00,000
From India, Mumbai
Dear Member,
This Act i.e. Payment of Gratuity Act, 1972 do not have any provision relating any contribution from any corner. The employer is liable to pay gratuity amount as & when payable.

Hi Tandeep,
You Can find the formulae that states (Basic +D.A.)*15*5/26)
Which clearly states that 15000*15*5/26 = 43270
More clarification is 1125000/26 need to be done the sum amount will be the gratuity.

Hii Tandeep
Your calculation to the above question should be like this:
(15000*15/26 ) * 5 years of service
(225000/26) * 5 years of service
(8654) * 5 years of service
= rupees 43270.
So the actual Gratuity payment to the employee will be Rs 43270.
If the gratuity amount would be more than Rs 350000 then the employee will be entitled to a max of 350000 only.
Hope i have made you clear..
