The minimum period of service for payment of Gratuity is completion of 5 years service, But Gratuity to any employee who has completed more than 3 years service or more is left to the sole discretion of the Company Management. You are not eligible for Gratuity if we go strictly by the rule book. You should make a request to the Board to consider paying you Gratuity, if they pay well and good; if not, just forget about it.
