What is gratuity?

Gratuity is a special amount that the company gives to its employees. According to the Gratuity Payment Act 1972, when an employee works for five years in the same institution, he is entitled to gratuity (Gratuity kya hai?). Government and private employees get the benefit of this scheme. Gratuity amount is given only on the termination of service, death or resignation of the employee. If any company (7th pay commission news) has 10 or more employees, then it has to give the benefit of gratuity to its employees. This rule applies to shops, showrooms, factories and mines along with companies.

The amount received on gratuity is tax free

The amount received from gratuity is tax free. If the employee dies while working in the company (Tax free gratuity), then the gratuity amount is given to the nominee. The 5-year rule does not apply here. The gratuity amount is calculated on the basis of the salary of 15 days of the last month. Its formula is gratuity = (n*b*15)/26. Here n means the number of years the employee has worked in the company. b means the last salary received by the employee (central government employees), which includes DA and commission.
