No, for Central Government employees, gratuity is governed by CCS (Pension) Rules 1972 and not by Payment of Gratuity Act. Under Pension Rules Gratuity is payable on retirement or death and not on resignation. Upon resignation except GPF, earned leave encashment all other benefits stands forfeited. EOL on private affairs unless otherwise decided by HoD too gets reduced from qualifying service.
