Note that the time period of service is rounded-off for gratuity calculation. If the last few months in the last year of employment are more than 6 months, then it will be rounded to the next number. For eg. 10 years and 8 months will become 11 years. Up to five months the same year will be counted. For example, if the period of service is 10 years and 4 months, it will be treated as 10 years.
