A Gratuity calculator is a tool that helps you get an estimate of the Gratuity amount you will receive.

Gratuity Calculation Formula

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:

  1. According to the gratuity act, the gratuity amount cannot be more than 20 lakh. Any excess amount would be considered ex gratia payment.
  2. 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.
