gratuity for fixed term contract employee


I am working with an organisation as fixed term contract employee. I joined here on 12-01-2018 for one year contract ending on 11-01-2019. then this contract again got extended for one year and i got new one year contract extension letter.they are deducting gratuity amount from my salary every month and same is also mentioned in my salary slip. this gratuity amount is included in my CTC. could I got this gratuity amount if I resigned here before completion of 5 years. actually this query is bcoz I am not permanent employee.

Being contractual employee you will become eligible for the payment of gratuity on completion of 5 years of service, if continuing with the same employer. But, it is another wonder that your employer is deducting the amount from your salary in the name of gratuity.

yes they are deducting gratuity amount every month from salary and it shows in salary slip also.
about contractual employee, I am fixed term contract employee. first they offer me one year contract then got extension for another one year and now they have given 6 months extension.. so how I will complete 5 year here? probability of completing 5 year is very less.

Less than 5 years of service with the same employer is must for the payment of gratuity. The employer cannot make deduction in your salary in the name of gratuity.

If you are not on their roll, then why you are asking the question about the gratuity? Looks to me that you are a student and not employee. If so, then ask such questions to your tutor, please.

Correct, I don't understand the word ON ROLE EMPLOYEE and I don't want to understand it. Because any employee whether regular or on contract remains on the ROLL of the employer's company. There also is a new phenomenon for me, where an employer deducts the gratuity amount from the employees like you. So better contact some local lawyer who is aware of such practice or the phenomenon.
