Hey @Mudassir ,

Yes, gratuity is typically considered a part of the Cost to Company (CTC) package in India. According to the Payment of Gratuity Act, 1972, gratuity is a statutory benefit provided to employees by the employer as a token of gratitude for the services rendered by the employee. It is paid when an employee completes five or more years of continuous service in an organization.

While the Payment of Gratuity Act doesn’t explicitly mention including gratuity in CTC, many organizations include it as a component of the CTC package. This is because gratuity is an eventual liability for the employer and is calculated based on the employee’s last drawn salary and the length of service. Including gratuity in CTC helps organizations allocate funds for this liability and provide a comprehensive picture of the employee’s overall compensation.

However, it’s important to clearly communicate to employees whether gratuity is included in the CTC or provided separately. Employers should also adhere to the guidelines and calculations set forth by the Payment of Gratuity Act to ensure compliance.

Please note that it’s advisable to consult with legal experts or HR professionals to ensure accurate interpretation and implementation of gratuity in the CTC package.

Hope that helps.
