Bombay High Court has ruled a teacher is an employee and is entitled to service benefits like gratuity.
An employee`s provident fund and gratuity cannot be attached under any decree in settlement of any debt or liability, the Gujarat High Court has held in an order made available on Saturday.
Parliament on Wednesday approved enhancing
the gratuity limit for employees from Rs 3.5 lakh to Rs 10
lakh as also the exemption threshold from income tax on it.
A bill to raise the ceiling of gratuity for employees to Rs 10 lakh from the current level of Rs 3.5 lakh was introduced in the Lok Sabha on Thursday.
Bringing cheers for thousands
of private sector employees, the government today approved
raising the ceiling for payment of gratuity to them from Rs
3.5 lakh to Rs 10 lakh.
After bringing teachers under the Payment of Gratuity Act, the Government is now proposing to raise the ceiling for payment of gratuity to private sector employees from Rs 3.5 lakh to Rs 10 lakh.
The Supreme Court has ruled that
gratuity is a statutory right of employees which cannot be
denied to them on the ground that they are being given
provident fund and pension benefits.
