Training cost cannot be deducted from gratuity. And after putting in 11 years training cost cannot be recovered under any guise.

You are entitled to 100% of the gratuity.

So far as you not getting an increment is concerned, you cannot claim anything against it unless your contract specifies that you are entitled for such increment.

You should approach the labour court. The labour inspector will first initiate a conciliation proceeding and call both parties together to resolve the issue. If the conciliation proceeding fails he will forward the report with a recommendation to the labour court.

You will have to contest the case before the labour court in that case.
