Gratuity Act Ammendment India 2010 (Calculation and Payment)


This is good news for all employees specially government employees. The Gratuity limit has been raised from 3.5 lacs to 10 lacs. This will give advantage to both private and public sector employees. According to this new amendment the 10 lacs on gratuity is Tax-free. I have given the details of the new Gratuity Act Amendment India 2010 and Gratuity calculation below:

On Thursday, in the lead of PM Manmohan Singh, this decision was taken at a cabinet meeting. This proposal of Labor and Employment Ministry has been given approval. Although many state governments has provided this type of advantage earlier. It is better decision regarding gratuity act to raise the Gratuity limit.

CCEA has taken decision to open the 137 General Nursing and midwife school to remove the scarcity of nurses and midwives. These schools will be made in Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, UP, Uttarakhand, Rajasthan, Orissa, Himachal Pradesh and others. The amount of 1370 crores will be spent on this planning.

For the Gratuity calculation the gratuity calculation formula is

1. basic/26 x 15 days x number of years of service


2. BASIC + DA (Last Pay drawn) X 15 /26 X No. OF YEARS WORKS

Gratuity is to be paid to any employee only he provides service for a minimum time of five years at a stretch with his employer in company. The Gratuity calculation is done as per the last average remuneration drawn and time in years served by an employee.
