  • Prof. L.K.Jain 11 months ago

    I was working as faculty member, Professor in Department of Architecture, in Madhav Institute of Technology and Science, Gwalior, a grant in aid institute by M. P. Govt. On 30/09/2018, I was retired from the service at the age of 62 years.
    On retirement I was paid only ₹3.50 lakh instead of ₹20.00 lakh as Gratuity payment. I have requested the Director, MITS and also to the Chairman, Board of Governors, Mr. Jyotiraditya M. Scindia, but no action has been taken till date to pay the balance amount. I have been informed by the Director, MITS, Gwalior that payment of ₹3.50 (the maximum limit) has been made as per the decision of Board of Governors.
    Is the decision of payment of truncated amount against Gratuity is as per law or the institute shall pay the balance amount of ₹16.50lakh as per Gratuity Act.
