"Employers use a simple mathematical formula to calculate the gratuity amount they will be paying their employee. The gratuity formula is shown here: Gratuity Amount = Y x S x 15/26 Where Y – Number of years worked in the organisation, S – Last drawn salary including Dearness Allowance So for example, if an employee has been working for a company for 10 years and the last drawn basic salary including DA is INR 20000, then the gratuity amount will be: Gratuity Amount = 10 x 20000 x 15/26 = INR 1,15,385"

The amount of gratuity received by ant employee if below INR 20 lacs is exempt from the income tax.

In the Interim Budget of 2019, interim finance minister Mr. Piyush Goyal announced an increase in the existing tax-free gratuity limit to Rs.30 lakh.
