Hi all,

What is the formula for Grauity calculations, on HRWeb it states

Basic Pay x 15/26 x (number of years with
Microsoft India).

However, according to other Indian sites it is

(15 * your last drawn salary * tenure of working) / 26.


Posting as :

You are currently posting as works at

It is basic pay.

Both are same.

The first one is calculated as

Basic Pay x (15/26) x tenure

which will give you same result as the 2nd one
