Payment of Gratuity Act, 1972

Object: It is an Act to provide for a scheme for the payment of gratuity to employees engaged in factories, mines, oilfields, plantations, ports, railway companies, and shops or other establishments.

Applicability: Any Employer of the above noted establishments where 10 or more persons are employed or were employed on any day of the preceding 12 months is liable to pay gratuity to its employees. Once the Act becomes applicable, it continues even if the number of employees falls below ten.

Entitlement: Gratuity is payable to an employee (nominee - in case of death of employee) who has rendered continuous service of five years or more on his termination of employment, superannuation, retirement or resignation. Completion of continuous service of five years is not necessary where the termination of employment is due to death of disablement.

Calculation: W x Y x 15/26 where W = Last Wage drawn i.e., basic + DA
Y = number of completed years of conyinuous service (six months or less to be ignored and more than six months to be counted as full year.
15 = 15 days salary
26 = No. of working days in a month.

Maximum Limit: Rs.3.5 lacs. (w.e.f 24-09-1997)

Time Limit for application to employer: Employee has to make an application in Form-I to his employer within 30 days from the date of gratuity becomes payable.

Whom to apply in case of non-payment by employer or dispute: Application in Form-N is to be made to the "Controlling Authority" i.e., the Assistant Labour Commissioner or the Labour-cum-Conciliation Officer of the concerned area within 90 days on the expiry of 30 days period of the employer.

Appeal: An aggrieved party can file an appeal to the Appellate Authority i.e Additional Labour Commissioner within 60 days of the decision of the Controlling Authority.
you know gratuity due after 5 year of regular service under one employer.

formula is Present basic divided by 26 ( days of month calculated as 26)

then multiply by 15 of every year . 15days salary eligible for every year after 5 year of regular service under one employer
You can use folloing formula for G. Caculation

Last month basic x 15 x No.of Years of Service Completed
Its very simple. Its just like rounding of Paise to nearest Rupees. e.g. Rs. 5.60 would be rounded off to Rs. 6/- where as Rs. 5.40 would be rounded off to Rs. 5/-. Similarly if months are more than 6 then it would rounded off to higher side i.e. in Years 1 would be added e.g. 5 years 5 months would be rounded off to 5 years where as 5 years 8 months would be rounded off to 6 years.

it is (Basic Pay+DA) X 15/26 X No. of years of Services(runding off).

Hi, Can any one breif me on gratuity payment workings for the employees worked more than 10 years with the organisation. Regards, Preeti

LIC must have given you a master policy and a format for submitting gratuity claims. Generally companies do prefer to put all the claims on monthly basis.
You have to submit the details as required in format given by lic and they will process the claim and give the cheque in favour of your company in turn you will have to pay the same to the concerned ex-employee.
No. interest is paid.
Calculation 12000/26X15 = 6923 x 12 yrs. = 83076
