Dear All

This has become a classic question amongst all fraternity of people.

Q. What is the eligibility for Gratuity?

A) Continuous service of not less than five years

Q. What is continuous service:

A. As per section 2A of gratuity act continuous service means the following:

Continuous service means period of uninterrupted service which includes:



1) Employee's all days of physical presence (i.e when he has attended work/duty)

2) Absence due to sickness

3) Absence due to accident

4) Absence from duties even after exhaustion of all leave (i.e leave without pay with

the approval from management; such absence should not be unauthorised i.e on

undisciplinary grounds like absence without any intimation, abandonment of duties

etc)

5) absence due to lay-offs (i.e when company lays off employees for their own

reasons)

6) absence due to authorised strikes or lock outs

7) absence due to cesation of work not due to any fault of employee

Q. How many days makes one 01 year of continuous service?

A. Continuous service for a period of one year (12 months) means:



a) 190 days for employee's stationed below the ground like mines or

b) 190 days for establishment which work less than 06 days in a week

c) 240 days for all other cases (i.e for all establishments working 06 days a week &

above the ground)

B. Continuous service for a period of six months means:

a) 95 days for employee's stationed below the ground like mines or

b) 95 days for establishment which work less than 06 days in a week

c) 120 days for all other cases (i.e for all establishments working 06 days a week &

above the ground)

C. Continuous service for employees in seasonal employment means 75% of days worked

on which the establishment was in operation/working (be it for calculating 01 year of

continuous service or 06 months of continuous service, it will be seen whether

employee has worked 75% of total working days of the establishment)

Therefore please check the following:

1. Whether you work below or above the ground

2. Your establishment is 06 days a week or less than 06 days

Then as per your total years of service, calculate for each completed 12 months the eligibility for continuous service. It should be five years of continuous service & NOW dont get confused about the meaning of continuous service:)
