Hi Rani,
Generally, when we do the salary bifurcation, we keep in mind the following % which helps in minimizing the TDS
Basic - 40% of Gross
HRA - 30% of Basic
Conveyance - 800 per month (As per the Law)
Other Allowance - Rest of the amount (This amount can be used fully or partially as Business related expenses (Fringe Benefits) to avoid the huge Taxes)

From Saudi Arabia, Jiddah

Gross - 500000 Basic - 40%*500000 = 200000 HRA - 30%*200000 = 60000 Conveyance - 800*12 = 9600 Other Allow = 230400 Hope this is clear now

Dear Mirza
Which law is restricting the Conveyance allowance as only Rs.800?
Many companies are paying more than that. (Even I am getting more).
Please clarify about the restriction on conveyance allowance.

Dear Mirza, Niter compulsory Rs. 800 per month nor mention in any Law. Between Office to Resident Income Tax Exempted maximum up to Rs. 800.00 per Month. No proof Required. Thanks, Regards, J.N.Modi

The OA is nothing but the balance amount.The HRA is 12% of the basic and depends on the location/company. The other name of OA is special allowance. SPA is taxable, HRA you can claim benefit by producing rent agreements and receipt. Any more doubts contact me.

Where did you read that HRA is 12% of basics?? HRA is 50% of basics for metro cities and 40% of basics in non-metro cities.
