1.) Gratuity is complsory in all  organizations where 10 or more employees are working.
2.) Renewal/contribution is a must every year.
3.) Yes during grace period claims can be settled for eligible employees.
4.) Part payment of the contribution is possible depending upon the Fund value of the policy.
5.) LIC uses Projected Unit Credit Method to calculate the contribution and the fund value. If fund value is less the the required level then it is possible that the gratuity claim will not be settled by the LIC.
6.) Formula to calculate the claim amount -Basic+DA(Last Pay drawn)  x 15 days x No. of yrs. of service ÷ 26

Hope your queries are answered.

I am agree with Mr. Kamal Prasoon. The employee who has completed 5 years of service is entitled for gratuity. But in case of death there is no such limit.

Dear Sathish,

1.) You can stop Gratuity Scheme in normal circumtances given to the employees. Well in you are planning to stop/close the business itself then there is no question of conituation of a Gratuity Scaheme as the organization itself does not exist.

Legally the paid amount is not refundable.

2.) As per the Gratuity Act an employee can claim his gratuity only after he/she completes his/her job for 5 years, there is no question of any Gratuity claim if an employess leaves a job without completing 5 years.

Thanks
Kamal Prasoon

Is the LIC Gratuity rule does not follow the gradutity act of india.

means Gratuity is payable is employee is completed 4 years 190 days and 4 years 240 days (as per norms).

 

Can any one please clarify me on that.?

 

Thanks and Regards

You have quoted from Payment of Gratuity Act, 1972.

You may check if it applies to LIC.

You may also go thru Gratuity Rules applicable to LIC.
