Dear Renuka,
If you do have the time and patience to peruse the similar threds already available on the same issue, you will certainly understand that there is no hard and fast rule nor any straight jacket formula to divide the gross salary of an employee into different components.
But care must be exercised to see whether the particular post/job is covered by the Minimum Wages Act, 1948 and minimum rates of wages have been fixed and the componential structure is similar to your industry wage structure. Besides, you have to take into account the periodical cost of employer's contributions to such statutory social security components like EPF, ESI, Gratuity etc., and other indirect commitment like statutory bonus.
Similarly, it is also important to compare the prevailing wage structures of the same or similar post in the same or similar type of industries in the region.
Therefore, you may devise the structure in such a manner that the sum of basic and dearness allowance constitutes not less than 70% of the total salary package.
