Entitlement To Gratuity Not Dependent On Retirement Age But Number Of Years Of Service : Allahabad High Court:

The Allahabad High Court has held that gratuity would be payable to a government employee based on his years of service and not on the age at which he retires.

Retirement at sixty years is not an entitling fact, which leads the employee to acquire a right to receive gratuity, which he otherwise does not have. An employee gets his right to gratuity according to the number of the years that he serves,” held Justice J.J. Munir.
