Companies offer gratuity amount to their employees. An employee gets the benefit of gratuity after working in a company for a fixed period. If he leaves or changes the job before the predetermined period, he will not get the benefit. In such a situation, the question often arises whether the gratuity rules are different for government and private sector employees. The answer to this is that whether you are a government employee or work in the private sector, gratuity rules are the same for everyone.

Earlier this month, Allahabad Court ruled that if an employee wants to retire after 60 years or retires at 62. Then he will get the benefit of gratuity in both the forms. Many companies did not give the benefit of gratuity to the employee because the employee had opted for retirement at 62 years.
