Hi every one I want to know how we calculate basic salary? is there any unique formula to calculate basic and other component of salary details like HRA,PF,Bonus,Graduity,ESIC/medical
Hi, Various organizations allot certain amount of percentages for calculating this. This percentage is of the total annual CTC..say for eg 25% of an annual CTC of 500000/-

Certain company follow certain rules.

Like for eg: If salary is Rs. 10000 /- per month
Some calculated Basic as 10000 * 60%
some do 10000 * 40%
Some do 10000 * 20%
Depending upon the company

CTC is a wider term. It includes everything a emlpoyee get by the employer. It is what you want to add. Like some compay add Mobile bill also in ctc.

So Depends on compay to company
Hi Shilpa,

Here is the basic formula to calculate Salary Components of CTC

Basic 40 to 60% of the CTC
HRA 25 to 40% of Basic
PF 12% of Basic as per the provident fund act both employer & employee
Bonus 8.33% of Basic Max 20% under the payment of Bonus Act,1965
Gratuity - (Basic +D.A) * 15 days / 26 days X 6 years (90 days) - Annually
ESIC - Employers contributes 4.75% & employee - 1.75%
Medical Rs. 1250/- Tax Exempt - Bills to be submitted
Conveyance Rs. 800/- Tax Exempt

I hope this will solve your query.

Best Regards,

In the present to keep the liability of the Company low and increase the Take Home salary of executives the basic is kept 30 to 35% of CTC. Other allowances can be named as Flexiallowance which include HRA, Medical & Conveyance etc. The employee may be given the option to divide the flexiallowance as per his/her convenience so that he gets the maximum benefit. Statutory liabilities like PF & ESI to be also taken into consideration which is
PF - 24% of basic ( both employer & employee share)
ESI- 6.5 % ( both employer & employee share) if applicable
To save on taxes for highly paid executives superannuation scheme with LIC can be implemented.
In addition to this LTA is given. The idea behind all this is to pass the maximum financial benefit to the employee.


Mr. Kandhare,

I had a confusion regarding the employer's contribution for PF. To my knowledge it is 12% of basic i.e. same as the employee's. Has it changed recently?
