Till date, no law hs been framed for setting aside decision of Apex Court of India vide which it has been decided that Payment of Gratuity is not applicable for private unaided school teachers. This judgment was given in Ahmedabad private teachers association matter.

as on today, private school teachers are brought under ESI Act and hence the private schools are categorized as establishment under Payment of Gratuity Act.Hence PG Act is applicable to private school teachers and it is effective from the date of coming in effect of ESI notification. PG Act is not applicable to the case on hand ie to Sri Shah Kautuk who retired on 19.1.99
