Money

I have retired from service 31st Oct-2019. My company was covered under payment of gratuity act 1972.

I have received Rs 1876910/-

My company has mentioned Rs 911642/- as tax exemption and the remaining amount was taxed.

I have cross checked with the exemption limit using income tax gratuity tax calculator. it shows my tax exemption limit as Rs 1051895/-. 

My employer says you are not paid as per gratuity payment act. The company is covered under the act. I do not know other provisions of my company if any.

Please advise me the method of calculation 

Ans: As per the latest amendment to Gratuity act 1972, least of the following is exempt from tax:

  1. Actual Gratuity received
  2. Rs. 20,00,000 (which has been hiked from Rs. 10 Lakh as per the amendment)
  3. Last salary (basic + DA)* number of years of employment* 15/26

We suggest computing as per above provision and claim tax exemption.
