Its depends upon you how you balance a individuals salary. but as far as basic and HRA. this will be calculated at CTC (company cost). this is his final salary including all allowances, perqusites and benifits. basic will be 30-40% of ctc and hra will be 50% of basic if he resides in metro cities like delhi, kolkata, mumbai and chennai. other than these cities it will be 40% of basic. all other allowance you can calculate by your own. and as far as travell allawance it is up to 800 exemted. beyond this...you can.

There is no such rule for the deciding the percentage of Basic and other allowances, but Karnatka High Court in the Case of Airfreight Ltd., observed that salary/wages shall be (2:1:1) means basic including DA will be 50 % of salary, HRA will be 25 % and rest will be allowance paid to be any name.
As per EPF Act, PF is applicable on Basic and DA @ 12 % ,
ESIC @ 1.75 % on total salary but excluding washing allowance subject salary and wages < 15000/-.
CTC : Cost to the Comapny means all cost which is invested to the employees including PF 12 %, ESIC 1.75%, Gratuity 4.81 %, LTA, Medical (As per company policy), cost towards Leave (Paid Leave).
Hope this will help you to understand the issue.

Your question is not very informative. However, based on my experience this is usually the structure of salary.
Basic + DA ( in terms of % of basic pay which is revised every quarter, at present it is around 53% of basic), HRA is also a certain % of Basic depending upon class of city, in your case it might be 25 to 30 %, Travelling allowance in some industries is given as fixed % of Basic and in some it is a fixed amount, Washing allowance also has same treatment. By going through you pay structure/agreement, now you can calculate the components of your Gross Salary. As regards deductions, PF is a statutory deduction @ 10%, rest deductions vary from industry to industry and Orgn. to Orgn.
Feel free to know more.

As per your comments ,
1. Employer can give Basic no on the basis of % ( but most of companies paid on % Basis).
2. DA as per applicable.
3. HRA : Depend upon Empr its 25% to 50% Max.
4. Other components depend upon company to Comp varies ( Conveyance, Performance , Medical, Mobile, Tiffin, washing, LTA, etc allowance)
5. and all annual components (like: Diwali bonus, Annual Performance Bonus,Annual attendance Bonus, etc)
6. Employer contribution ( PF:12% on Basic+DA, ESI: 4.75% on Gross salary <15000- Excluding annual payout, Gratuity : Basic*4.81%)
7. All includes CTC.
As per Mr. M G Rabbani said: in CTC calculation ESI is 4.75% not, 1.75 % (1.75% is Employee Contribution)

While there is no specific Act to determine the Basic pay,
But certainly the Fixed DA (FDA) and Variable DA (VDA) are linked to whole sale/consumer price index which are provided by the Labour Dept. of the GOI once in a quarter. This is mandatory for all industrial houses. Rest all will vary from Estt. to Estt.
However follg. rates would apply -
PF @ 12% employee's & employer's (if not exempted), & DLI & EPF
Bonus (ex-gratia in lieu of bonus- min.@8.33%),
ESI (if covered) @ 1.75%-employee's subs. and 4.75% of employer's contbn.
Termination & retirement gratuity @ 15 days of salary for every year of qualifying service (Ref.Gratuity Act.)
Accident and death compensation as per Workmen's Compensation Act.
These are mandatory provisions as per law.

i m still confuse with ESI part...
in salary brakup what all things are inculded in ESI ?
in my co. we break the salary as basic, HRA, travling All. , Spl. Allw. , incentives, Washing All.
What all parts of the salary will be added in order to calculate the ESI...

I'll confuse little more, U invited more trouble, see the attachment. Don't blame me.
How to Calculate ESI:
For PF: Wages means Basic + DA+ Food subsidy+leave encashment(if paid).
On PF wages, employee will subscribe 12% and employer also contributed 12%.
The employer's contribution split into PF 3.67% and Pension Fund 8.33%.
For the purpose of PF wages ceiling is or even if salary/wages is more than Rs.6500/- it will be restricted upto Rs.6,500/-.
For ESI: Salary or Wages (both one and the same) means basic+DA+allowances+overtime.
But Conveyance allw.should not be considered.
For ESI revised limit Rs.15,000/-maximum once exceeded they will not be eligible.
The employee will be recoverd @ 1.75% of gross salary/wage and employer contribute @ 4.75% on employee's gross.
Any minimum wages, no minimum limit, also attract to ESI deduction.

PF is calculated on Basic + DA.
ESI is calculated on Basic+ DA+ HRA+Conveyance+ Performance allowance+ General allowance+bonus +fixed Traveling allowance+ fixed Incentives= Gross
Note: For ESI Calculation Washing Allowance+ Hill allowance will not be taken for calculation.
If you have any doubts means let us know.

Basic pay = A remuneration offered to an employee depending on nature/qualification/exp./responsibilities etc attached to a job. DA= Dearness Allw. Meaning an allowance to meet increase in prices of your day to day needs, an allw. to partially help U to buy things which have become dearer to you. In Govt. & Indl.sector this will vary depending on the movement of whole sale/consumer price indices, periodically announced by the Govt.
HRA= House Rent Allw, meaning an allw. meant to meet an employees housing exp.
Normally these allw. are expressed in terms of % on basic pay, saying DA @ 50%, HRA @ 20% on basic etc.
CCA = City compensatory allw. this is provided mostly by govt. sector @ 10 or 20% on basic pay.This not necessarily fixed as such. An employer can fix total remuneration as package all put together without splitting into basic pay, DA, HRA etc.
These terms are generally in vogue in govt.sector & corporate/big co. but not so much in small firms in private sector where they offer CTC (means cost to co.)which normally include meant to compensate other benefits like PF,Bonus, incentives, LTA, medical, conveyance, equivalent of food coupons etc. However,this is not uniform in all employers.
