Private answer

BSNL direct recruited employees have a doubt, whether the revised Gratuity ceiling is applicable for them or not.

I want to make it clear that DPE has issued an "Office Memorandum" on the 10th July 2018.

One most important paragraph from the DPE's order is being reiterated here for the clarification.

"Whereas, on and after 23.03.2018, the payment of Gratuity of 20 Lakhs is mandatory for all CPSEs irrespective of their affordability as it is a statutory provision in the light of amendment in the payment of Gratuity Act, 1972. This provision is applicable to all employees of all CPSEs "

So, it is clear that the directly recruited employees of BSNL are eligible for the enhanced ceiling of Gratuity, which is now 20 Lakhs.

If you want to check the exact eligible amount, please follow the link.
