HR in an international call center and my senior told me to design a salary structure where the base salary should be very less and incentives (which includes attendance allowance, food allowance, performance allowance and transport allowance etc.) should be more interims of figures. So can anybody help me out if i want whole in total for Rs. 8000 and Rs.7000, then what would be the base salary and what would be the incentives?

First of all Wish you a Happy New Year.
May be you are at any region in India, Basic salary is fixed between two variables i.e. 30% min to 50% maximum on gross salary.
Gross Salary in general Includes:
1. Basic (30% to 50% of Gross)
2. HRA (40% of Basic)
3. Medical Allowance (Rs.1250 pm)
4. Transport Allowance or Conveyence (Rs. 800 pm)
5. Special Allowance (Gross - (1+2+3+4))
Let me know for any clarifications on my personal ID:

Hi Friend,
I want to put some comments in this issue. HR Professional should be like a bridge between employer and employee so you have to play a great role.

We can easily understand why your senior is asking you to prepare this kind of structure. As basic and DA will affect in Statutory compliances, Gratuity, EL, Bonus.One thing you have to understand well, HR should be a care taker for employees.

Do fair work for employees. Now in PF there are checking the pay structure and asking us to pay 50-60% to basic and DA, otherwise you will be facing the legal issues. Please discuss the issue to your seniors.

While preparing the pay structure you have to be very careful. The pay structure will be different from one organisation to another organisation. Its all depends on the HR Policy.


Gross Salary-8000
Basic Salary -30% from gross salary (2400)
HRA -40% from basic salary (960)
Conveyance Ė800
Medical Allowances-1250
Educational Allowances-1000
Special Allowances-1590

It will be vary from one organisation to another organisation.

This is just my suggestion friend.

Warmest Regards,

Recently, I have joined a company where they have nothing beside Basic and HRA so I am paying IT whereas in the last company my salary was same but I had option of getting reimbursement of telephone, magazine, car running and entertainment. This was part of CTC. If I submit bill then I donít needs to pay Income tax for these. But if I submit bill amount which crosses the amount mentioned in CTC then they donít use to reimburse.

But my present company is saying that even I submit bill then also it is under Income Tax.

Mr jai,
as per your attachment i found that the basic is changeble according to the percentage, but as per the rule u have to fix the basic + Da min or more as per the govt rule , so my suggesstion is as per the state rule you have to fix those amount as per the minimum wages act
So while fixing the salary kindly breakup in percentage wise and keep the basic + DA fixed & other allowances for lower salary those who dont come under Income Tax Act. and those who comes under IT Act kindly include conveyance, Transprt allow, LTA & Med Rem and other statutory deduction.
