Please be specific about "Other Allowance". Note: Washing Allowance is exempted in ESI. HRA can be 50% of Basic. Also, please note that PF Dept is specific that Basic should be 50% of the gross salary or otherwise they think that we subterfuge the PF contribution.
It is better to have different salary structure for CTC less than 2.5 Lacs and above 2.5 Lacs.
It is advisable to give "Medical Allowance", "Uniform Allowance" & "Book Allowance" to higher salary as "Reimbursement allowances" so that TDS won't attract. LTA is also better for higher salary people.
