    Eligibility and calculation of Gratuity after working in Railways for 8 years?

    I have been working in Railways for about 8 years now. I am planning to quit the job due to health problems. Am I eligible for the gratuity amount ? How the gratuity amount is generally calculated?

    The gratuity amount is typically given to an employee who has completed around 5 years of service in an organization. This is mainly given if the employee retires or resigns, cannot continue service due to any illness etc. Since you have completed around 8 years of service in Railways, you will be certainly eligible for the payment of gratuity in that current organization.

    The gratuity act is applicable to business covered under the Shops and Establishments Act/regulations of a state, in which 10 or more persons are employed. The gratuity is computed on the basis of 15 days of wages which is drawn by an employee last on every completed year of service or part there of in excess of 6 months. In case of employees earning monthly wages, the month is reckoned to be of 26 days and computation is to be done accordingly.

    The computation methods will differ for different industries or sectors. The maximum amount of gratuity that can be paid to an employee is hiked to Rs. 10 lakh from the previous amount of Rs.3.5lakh.

    Hi,

    You can calculate your gratuity by this :-

    ((Basic+DA) of the last drawn salary/26)*No of years of
    service if he/she has crossed 5 years of continuos service.
    ie B+DA/26*15*No of years

    Hello, completing 5 years of service makes u eligible for gratuity. I am giving u a formula for calculating the gratuity:
    Salary = Basic + DA

    Your last drawn monthly salary
    ___________________________x 15 x (No. of years in service) = Gratuity ; 1 month = 26 days
    26

    In Railways the gratuity amount is given to an employee who has completed minimum 5 years of service. If the employee retires or resigns or cannot continue service due to any illness etc. he is eligible to receive amount of gratuity. The gratuity is calculated on the basis of 15 days of wages last drawn by an employee for every completed year of service. In case of employees earning monthly wages, the month is treated to be of 26 days and accordingly the calculation of Gratuity is done.

    I joined Indian Customs Mumbai on 13.11.1996 (Central Government) (Ministry of Finance, Department of Revenue). I resigned due to domestic reasons on 6.1.2012. Am I eligbile for gratuity? My department is telling, since I have not taken VRS, i.e. not completed 20 years, I am not eligible for gratuity. Kindly, clarify so that there is no injustice done to me. Also guide as to what other dues I am entitled on my resignation other than my provident fund amount.

    Since, I have not received any replies, should I assume that the rules applicable in Railways and our Department are the same?

    Thanks.
