GDS Gratuity order released on 27.06.2018 is illegal.
This is the present Gratuity order.
"Granted at the rate of halfmonth's basic TRCA drawnimmediately before dischargeof service, for each completedyear of service subject to amaximum of Rs.1,50,000/- or 16.5times basic TRCA last drawn,whichever is less".
Minimumservice prescribed for elig ibilityof Ex-gratia gratuity is 10 years.
suppose after implementation i.e 1.7.2018 a GDSBPM with a basic of Rs.14,500 may be retire from service
as per above order
half months basic = 7,250
suppose his service is 35 years, then 7250×35 =Rs.2,53,750/-
last drawn basic is 14,500, then 14500×16.5 = Rs.2,39,250
As per above order "whicever is less " means Rs.2,39,250
But how Department issue order with a maximum ceiling of Rs.1,50,000 unscientifically.
So, all senoir GDS are requested not to worry regarding gratuity.We will definitly win in this issue in the court of law.
