In the context of the Payment of Gratuity Act,1972, break in service refers to the period during which the continuity of the service of an employee stands snapped while the contract of employment between the employer and the employee still subsists.
In other words, any period of interruptions in service other than those deemed to be non-interruptions under Section 2A of the Act (defines Continuous Service), is a break in service of the employee for the purpose of gratuity.
This definition of break in service applies to the State of West Bengal also.
I hope it helps.
