Seems you are from Mumbai, Maharashtra.
Specific answers to your queries are as under:
1. PT is deducted on Gross Earning and not on Gross decided. Gross earning is Rs. 6,000/-. So there is no Tax as per the slabs given as above by our learned member Prof. Kumar in his response to your query.
2. Tax is to be deducted on monthly earning as per the slabs given above irrespective of the employee works for entire year or not.
