Payment of Gratuity Act – Scope and Applicability Quiz

Payment of Gratuity Act

Gratuity is an old age retiral social security benefit. It is a lump sum payment made by an employer to an employee in consideration of his past service when the employment is terminated. In the case of employment coming to an end due to retirement or superannuation, it enables the affected employee to meet the new situation which quite often means a reduction in earnings or even total stoppage of earnings. In the case of death of an employee, it provides much needed financial assistance to the surviving members of the family. Gratuity schemes, therefore, serve as instruments of social security and their significance in a developing country like India where the general income level is low cannot be over emphasised.
