Gratuity received by Government employees and employees of local authority [Section 10(10)(i)] - In case of a Government employee, any death-cum-retirement gratuity received is wholly exempt under Section 10(10)(i). It should be noted that employees of statutory corporation will not fall under this category.
  2. Gratuity received by non-Government employees : This category will further be classified as follows :
    1. Exemption in respect of gratuity in case of employees covered by the Payment of Gratuity Act, 1972. [Section 10(10)(ii)]

      Exemption in this case will be lower of the following amounts :

      1. 15/26 (*) days' last drawn salary (**) x years of service (^)

        (**) Last drawn salary including DA but excluding any bonus, commission, HRA, overtime and any other allowance, benefits or perquisite.
        (^) The formula is based on the 15 days of last drawn salary for each completed year of service or part thereof in excess of six months. If an employee has worked for 20 years 7 months, the years of service will be taken as 21. However, if an employee has worked for 20 years 5 months, the years of service will be taken as 20.

        [ Average monthly salary (**) x ½ ] x Completed years of service (^^).

      3. Gratuity actually received.

        (**) Average monthly salary is to be computed on the basis of average of salary for 10 months immediately preceding the MONTH (not the day) of retirement. The salary means basic salary, dearness allowance, and commission received on sales.
