is Gratuity in Central Government Services?
Gratuity is a hidden savings of employees working in Government
Service. Gratuity amount is calculated depends upon his period of service. The
bulk amount of Gratuity is usually paid at the time of retirement. In some
cases, it can be paid before as per existing rules.
How to calculate Gratuity?

days x Number of Years of Service ] / 26 Days.

As per the labour law in India, the maximum working days in a month
should be 26. Weekly holiday should be given to employees is compulsory.
is the ceiling of Gratuity?
The 7th pay commission recommended to enhance the ceiling of
Gratuity from Rs. 10 lakh to 20 lakh.
There are three types of Gratuity in force in Government services…
DEATH GRATUITY &
This is payable to the retiring Government servant. A minimum of 5
years’ qualifying service and eligibility to receive service gratuity / pension
is essential to get this one time lump sum benefit. Retirement gratuity is
calculated @ 1/4th of a months Basic Pay plus Dearness Allowance drawn on the
date of retirement for each completed six monthly period of qualifying service.
There is no minimum limit for the amount of gratuity. The
retirement gratuity payable for qualifying service of 33 years or more is 16
times the Basic Pay plus DA, subject to a maximum of Rs. 20 lakhs.
This is a one-time lump sum benefit payable to the nominee or
family member of a Government servant dying in harness. There is no stipulation
in regard to any minimum length of service rendered by the deceased employee.
Entitlement of death gratuity is regulated as under:
Less than one year

On death of a Government servant while in service, the family is entitled to a family pension in accordance with Rule 54 of the Central Civil Services (Pension) Rules, 1972. The family pension was payable at enhanced rate of 50% of the pay last drawn for a period of 10 years, if the Government servant had rendered a continuous service of not less than seven years; thereafter the rate of family pension was 30% of the pay last drawn. In case the Government servant had rendered a service of less than seven years before his death, the rate of family pension was 30% from the beginning and family pension at enhanced rate of 50% of last pay drawn was not payable to the family.
The Government felt that the need for family pension at enhanced rate is more in the case of a Government servant who dies early in his career, as his pay at the initial phase of service is much less. The Government has, therefore, amended Rule 54 of the Central Civil Services (Pension) Rules, 1972 by a notification dated 19th September, 2019. As per the amended Rule 54, the family of a Government servant, who dies within seven years of joining service, will also be eligible for family pension at enhanced rate of 50% of last pay drawn, for a period of 10 years
The above amendment would be effective from 1st October, 2019. However, the families of Government servants who died before completion of service of seven years within 10 years before 1st October, 2019, will also be eligible for family pension at enhanced rates with effect from 1st October, 2019.
The benefit of amended provisions would be available to the families of all Government servants, including the personnel of CAPFs, in the unfortunate event of their death within seven years of joining Government service.
