Asked in Labour from Eluru, Andhra Pradesh
If you were full time employee, you shall be eligible for gratuity. Doctor is held to be a workman under the Industrial Disputes Act (Mar Baselius Medical Mission Hospital
v Joseph Babu 2007 (1) KLT 783)
Advocate, New Delhi
If you have served for 5 years continuously without break in service, then you would be eligible for gratuity.
