Dear Colleague,

Broadly it is a correct structure. The employer had given 50% of Basic and probably rest of 50% will constitute other Allowances.

As far as HRA is concerned it varies from 25% to 45% of Basic Pay depending on your City where you are posted.

LTA is as per internal policy and IT Rules normally and seems in order.

PF is 12% which is Law based and it is also right
All the Best!!!

Dear Member,

Calculation wise the CTC structure is fine, even the HR has considered the wages definition as per new wages code (which is yet to be implemented).

But in this structure, you have to pay more Income Tax, as per my opinion it can be more tax friendly by adding some Re-imbursement components (in place of “Special Allowances”) like Mobile Reimbursement, Fuel Reimbursement, Book-Periodical Reimbursement etc.

In the reimbursement process you have to submit separate claim with bills and you can get the amt. as per Reimbursement Policy.

The HRA can be given at different rates, but here it is more important to show the HRA in a tax friendly way. Same is correctly shown (being 40% which is maximum HRA exemption in case of Non-Metro city).

Dear Colleagues,

Yes, 100% the Tax Laws especially how tax friendly % of HRA to give sufficient tax saving proposition is what is to be supported by Employer. Components like "Car Hiring reimbursement, " Fuel Reimbursement, Driver Salary Reimbursement" are few examples which as a Policy from the Side of Employer may be considered from Income Tax saving angle.
