Total Gratuity Payable: 0

An employee is eligible to receive gratuity when the following criteria are met:

- Employee should be eligible for superannuation
- Employee retired from the services
- Employee resigned after continuous services of five years or more
- In case of death or disability due to illness or accident

Zimyo uses a standard formula for calculating formula gratuity that is given below:

**G= N*B*15/26**

In the formula, the values represent the following things.

**N** – Number of years an employee has worked in the organization**B**– Last drawn basic salary plus dearness allowance (DA) of an employee **G**– Gratuity amount an employee is eligible to receive

To better understand the calculation, let’s take an example. If employee A has worked with the organization for 5 years, his basic salary plus dearness allowance amounts to 25,000. Hence:

The amount of gratuity would be: 5*25000*15/26= 72,115

You should keep in mind two important points:

- According to the gratuity act, the gratuity amount cannot be more than 20 lakh. Any excess amount would be considered ex gratia payment.
- For calculating the gratuity amount, the number of months of the last employment year will be rounded to the nearest figure. For example, if you have worked in the organization for 6 years and 7 months, you will receive gratuity for 7 years. If it has been 6 years and 5 months, you would have received gratuity for only 6 years.

Follow these steps to calculate the gratuity amount using the Zimyo gratuity calculator:

- Enter your last drawn basic salary plus dearness allowance in the first input field
- Enter the number of years you worked in the organization (use the nearest rounded figure)
- Click on the calculate to get your gratuity value within seconds
