Further, IT is calculated on total projected earnings during a financial year. It has nothing to do with Net pay or CTC. As a thumb rule, all the items on the Earning side of your payslip is considered to calculate the Total Earnings, from which various investments as per your declarations (like u/s 80C, 80D, etc) are deducted to arrive at Taxable Earnings.

I appreciate the views given by Pon & Dixon. But I really do not understand why we don't refer to relevant Act before posting our doubts/queries on this forum. If we find answers to our doubts by ourselves, it will be more satisfying and will get deep rooted in our heart and mind. So my humble suggestion is that pl refer to IT Act first and if any doubt remains, let that be posted on this forum.
I could have made additions to what has been posted earlier. But I am not doing so. I would appreciate if you go through Act and then post your query that remains uncleared.
