How many workers (watchmen and other staff) are there employed by the Housing Society.  This information is key to first determine whether the Watchman is eligible for Gratuity or not.

Dear Sir,

Thanks your for your kind reply.

since from starting society keep 2 watchmen one is for Day Time & One is For Night Time.

some time society paid by cash, and after objection of member than paid by Cheque as Self, or By Cheque on Name of the Watchmen.

The requirement of minimum number of employees is not satisfied for the application of Gratuity Act.

Therefore, the watchman in your society is not eligible for any Gratuity.

Similarly, the question of notice period pay also would not arise.

But, if the Society of its own pays some Ex-gratia amount that would be a different thing altogether.
