Hi srishti
Net salary is the take home salary of the emolyee while gross salary is the figure before making statutory or other deductions.
gross salary is basic+ HRA+ trnasport+ other allowance.
Gross salary minus pf contribution, ESI contribution, professional tax contribution etc. (as per applicability ) becomes net salary.
Hope its clear...
do revert back for further querries...

Dear Sristhi,
Gross Salary is the agreed/committed compensation your Organisation agrees to pay on a monthly(periodic) basis aginst your services for that period.
Net Salary is gross salary less the deductions which are made on account of statutory compliances(like PF, ESI, Income Tax, Professional Tax) and other dues (Like Loans and Advances taken) which you owe to the Company and Legal dues if any. It is something you get in hand and commonly refer to as Take Home Pay.
Your Income Tax is based on the Gross Pay.
While CTC or Cost to Company is equal to Gross pay + Benefits, Perks and Prequisites i.e., the total Cost a Company incurs in employing the person.

Dear All, In case of PF contribution by employer being included in CTC, how do we arrive at that element not included? Best Regards' Anu

Just a small input from me about this.
Income Tax is based on annual CTC (or Total Income) which includes all perks & perquisities.
Also, as per my understanding, Gross Salary is the total salary received on MONTHLY BASIS. This excludes the annual components like LTA, bonus etc. CTC is Gross Pay + annual components + perks/benefits/perquisites, whether in cash or kind. Net pay is the take-home pay, after all deductions.
However, some people refer to Gross pay as the total of only the CASH components. Non-cash components like driver, sweeper, company accomodation etc which the employee does not pay for are excluded. These are a part of CTC though.
Warm regards,

Hi Dheeraj, I do not have even the foggiest idea about the industry splits. If I do come across the data, I will surely share it here. Warm regards, Devjit

Dear Devjit,
You are right. But what I meant was that Annual Gross Pay which includes other perks and benefits. Perquisities I missed out. Sorry for the slip.
One more thing we should understand that all components of CTC are not included in Taxable Income like Gratuity, PF, Medical Coverage Insurance, Accident Benefits Insurance,Industry Specific Benefits.
