Hi Cgnanij,

The salary components are split for the following reasons:
  1. Tax benefits
  2. Ease of administration of C&B.
  3. Standardization of the components
  4. Statutory requirements
Medical allowance – Rs 15 K – not taxable provided the employees give the medical bills.

PF -12 % is levied on the Basic salary which is a statutory requirement and also provides the employee tax benefit understand section 81 D while computing his taxable income.

HRA – here again one gets the tax benefit by providing the actual rent receipts as per the IT tax act.

The essence of the salary structure is to provide the balance in tax benefits to employees viz higher take home salary as per the IT Act and also meet the statutory requirements.
