According to speaker from KPK, gratification is every gifts received by the Civil Servants or State Administrators. At this point, gratification has a neutral meaning and do not relate with anything prohibited or wrong. In broader meaning, gratification may come as provision of goods, rebates (fees), commissions, loan without interest, travel tickets, lodging facilities, travel tours, free medical treatment, and other facilities. The gratuities were received both domestically and abroad and which were carried out using electronic or non-electronic means.
