    I have been superannuated in 31st January 2018 and got gratuity from my employer 16.50 lacs. As per the 7th Pay Commission, GOI has enhanced the gratuity limit exceeded from 10 lacs to 20 lacs. In our organization ( PSU), BOD had also approved the enhanced gratuity limit from 10 to 20 lacs in 2017 from 01.01.2017 i.e. the date of pay revision in PSUs. In this regard, an OM has also received in our office from DPE in 2017 enhancing the above limit from 10 lacs to 20 lacs. I just wanted to know whether the TDS is applicable on enhanced gratuity amount who retires/superannuated from the service before March 2018
