  1. Sir I retired as Spl. Asst from Bank of India in Feb,2018 and lost the benefit of Gratuity ceiling limit of Rs.20 lacs since the effective date 01.01.2016 was amended by Govt. as 28.03.2018. As per 11th BPS Gratuity is calculaed on 12 months basic pay but not on last drawn basic pay whereas for officers last drawn basic pay taken. I lost the benefit . I request you to pay gratuity to award staff based on last drawn basic pay
