Does DA have to be caluculated sepeartely...can it be a part of the salary.
could you let know of the slabs that prevail in a trading/retail unit.for sales personnels.
what if the remaining portion of the salary other than Basic and DA is also fixed and not based on reimburables?
Who include in grade C and D ?

From India, Thiruvananthapuram
Yes, DA must be calculated seperately as it changes upon the change in Consumer Price Index(D.A point). Wages consists of two portions-Basic Wages(constant until next revision) and fluctuating D.A.
Salesman/Saleswomen-Rs.3954 Basic+Rs.797(DA in Thrissur)
Group C include Packer, Cleaner, Washerman-Rs.3877 + Rs.797(D.A)
Group D included Peon, Watchman, Attender-Rs.3800+Rs.797(D.A)
The only condition is that the total minimum wages(basic+da) must be paid to employees. Any addition exceeding Minimum Wages is not a concerned matter and employer is free to give anything in addition to MW.
