I could not understand your query, please elaborate, as far as I understood from your query, you have to pay the salary for the full month even the working day is 24 instead of 26. If an employee is absent for a day or two, the same has to be adjusted against their leaves or LOP.
Dear Saji,

Thanks for your valuable reply.I joining in a new textile manufacture company. They have to follow for the Below mentioned pay calculation.

Pls clarify my below mentioned payroll doubts.

Our factory staff Salary structure - basic-5000 , da- 2500, hra - 2500 - gross salry-10000 and worker salary like per month = 3718.

If Working day should be a 27 days(Dec Month) -Rs.10000. If any Lop for 1 days .deduction amt - 10000/26*1-10000 =384.61=9615.39

If If Working day should be a 25 days(june month) -Rs.10000. If any Lop for 1 days .deduction amt - 10000/26*1-10000 =384.61=9615.39

If Working day should be a 24 days(Feb month) -Rs.10000. If any Lop for 1 days .deduction amt - 10000/26*1-

10000 =384.61=9615.39

Worker Wages:

If Working day should be a 27 days(Dec Month) -Rs.3718. If any Lop for 1 days .deduction amt - 3718/26*1-3718 =143=3575

If If Working day should be a 25 days(june month) -Rs.3718. If any Lop for 1 days .deduction amt - 3718/26*1-3718 =143=3575

If Working day should be a 24 days(Feb month) -Rs.3718. If any Lop for 1 days .deduction amt - 13718/26*1-3718 =143=3575

All the calulation should be divided by 26 days.

If the salary is calculated for the lop method it is met out the minimumwages for the worker even the working 27 days.

what is my doubt is if the working day should be a 27 days in a month we have to issue the salary for one day extra.

EX: 10000/26=27 * 10000/26=10384.61

Is this above mentioned format is correct or not.pls advise that.

If you are asking for 1 day extra for 27 days working in a month then the employer would also think for deducting 1day considering working for 25 days and 24 days in a month, which will pinch each and every employee.

Dear saji, Yes ,That’s right.The employer has deducted one day for 27 days working in a month each and every employee. Is it correct pay method for that company. Kindly Reply. Regs kos

My Dear friend the company has also paid you all 2 days extra when the working day was 24 and 1 day extra when the working days were 25. So how come we say that the company is not correct or not perfect.
The Factories' Act is very clear on this subject. You have to give one day off after every 6 working days. What you have to do is to pay the workers on the basis of the number of working days in the month, say, Feb 14 had 28 days out of which 4 were Sundays (assuming that your factory is closed on Sundays). Therefore, your calculation would be:
For Feb 14
Rs.5000 (Basic + DA + HRA + Other Allowances) /24 (no. of working days in the month) x No. of days present Less deductions for PF, ESI, etc.
For Mar 14
Rs.5000 /25 + 1 (Paid Holiday for Holi) = 26 x No. of days Present Less deductions...

Dear Saji,
Yes, I agree with that the management has to paid for extra 1 & 2 days wages for even 25 & 24 Working Days .What i mean was ,If 27 days working day in a year - 5 month , 25 days working day in a year - 2 month ,24 days working day in a year - 1 month , 26 days working day in a year - 4 month.
27 Days - 5 month. so, 5 working days extra for a whole year . Auditor has disscussed with this point of view, If the worker has working in a year, they was worked for 5 extra days . but , the management has to paid for 4 extra days salary only like this month 24 & 25 days in month.What about that 1 Day Salary?.
What i was feel that , if the worker working in a 27 days ,we should pay for the extra one day salary ?.pls give the solution.

If the Auditor has made a remark, put that report in front of the management to decide, and if the management is in favor of the Auditors view, change it accordingly. Would only advice not to change any practice without the consent of the management.
It is the duty of the auditors to dig out points for their report, but not necessarily that whatever view is kept in front of the Management has to be followed/adhered.
