One person has worked in an Organisation for 4 yrs and nearly 9-10 month and resigned from the service. now he is claiming for gratuity stating " since i worked 4 yrs and 240 days continuous service in 5th yrs kindly settle my gratuity amount" in view of above whether he is entiled for gratuity as per gratuity act 5 yrs service is required.

Sir in the PG Act nothing has been mentioned for such situation, but it is cleared that continuous service means 12 calender month hence in my opinion it will not be appropriate to consider the demand of employee.

Hi All,
I have one doubt related to Gratuity Payable. I need clarification if someone knows answer. Letís assume employee completes 5 yrs of service with company but when he completes 5 yrs of service if he is servicing notice period then in this case is he eligible for Gratuity

I completde 5.1 years with a MNC company .My company is saying that for the 1st year I am in training period.So it does not count,
Is it true that training period will not count?
What is the actual rule?

Dear Pramod
4 years and 240 working days are only mentioned and not that 240 days.
That means 4 years 9 months and 1 week service is minimum requirement for those organisation working weekly 6 days, i.e., weekly off must be excluded from that 240 days.
Hence whoever completed 4 years and 8 months are not eligible for Gratuity.

Dear Anil
The training period, Probation Period, Orientation Programme period and any other period whatever it may be, if the person engaged by your company means he is eligible for Gratuity, if he serves for more than 5 years period.
