  • Gratuity actually received
  • Last 10 month’s average salary (basic + DA)* number of years of employment* 1/2;
  • INR 10,00,000/- (the hike to INR 10,00,000/- is not applicable for employees not covered under the Payment of Gratuity Act)

Effects of the Amendment

The example makes the impact of the amendment clearly. The maximum exemption ceiling limit being increased lowers the amount of taxable gratuities. In the short to medium term, this amendment will be beneficial to individuals with higher salaries. The majority of employees will, however, benefit from this adjustment if you have a long time before retirement.
