Update: Got FnF letter today, Cognizant has considered revised Salary structure (which changed effective 1st October 2022) for settling the Gratuity, Leave encashment, and final salary prorated. Happy that Cognizant showed this gesture, even when the revised Salary structure and e-letters weren't out until my last working day.


As per the Clearance portal it states that it should be within 45 days. But I know people who have received it in the same calendar month (last working day), it depends on when all the clearances are receiving / relieving letter is issued. I think the cutoff may be 15/20 of the month.
You can obviously ask HRSS (check for the email address from "Always Cognizant" portal). FnF will also be generated and available there.

Since LWD was 10th October, you will receive a salary on 31st October. IN CTS cut off for payment is 20th of every month. In terms of final settlement and Gratuity, you will get it in mid November mostly though clearance email states as 45 days.

I got FnF including everything today, while my LWD was 13Oct.

Gratuity, Pro-Rated allowance.
Also if your leave balance is more (I think around 7 or 9+), you get it in a multiple of 7/5 factor.

Hi Guys,

I recently joined Cts, my prior experience was as java back end developer, java 8 and spring boot

After joining cts, I was mapped to a good project, before it started was mapped to a different one
Here I'm working with bug fixes and enhancement of legacy apps java 7, I really don't like it And as I don't know anyone upclose not feeling comfortable at work, feels like I'm judged for everything I do


Do you think it's the fault of employees who work late or extend and set it as a culture or the employers who always wants more...?
I think even if u could say clearly NO there are management people who doesn't respect it.. based on my personal experience.
