My father who was a BHEL emp passed away on feb21, 2013. In his gratuity nomination he nominated 50% on my mother name and 50% on my grandfather name. My grand father expired in nov, 2011. No fresh nomination or modification to earlier nomination is made by my dad.
Company asks to get Succession certificate from court of our father to release gratuity amount.
There was no third party dispute I dont know why court is being involved here.
My mother got group insurance, PF, Salary etc. But stuck with gratuity.
Is legal heir certificate from Tahsildar is sufficient to release Gratuity???
How can I prove that when post death of nominee occurs, amount reverts back to emp and nomination becomes void and the eligible nominee(my mother) is entitled to receive Gratuity.
