Only in case where employee expired during period of his employment his legal heirs as per Gratuity Act are entitled to get proportionate gratuity amount to the tenure of his employment. Else as stated earlier in any case even a short fall of one day to Five Years of Service will not make employee entitled for Gratuity Payment. Five Years and there after each year minimum working of 240 days are required. But it is not true that in fifth year if employee is completed 240 days he is eligible. more

And proceed to hold that person putting in more than 4 years and 6 months is entitled to gratuity. more  
Gratuity calculating formula ... (Basic Pay + DA ) X length of service in years(6 months or more to be considered as full years less than 6 months to be ignored) X 15 / 26 more
