Can anyone guide me for the salary structure breakups as in what should be the % wise breakup of Basic, HRA, Conv, uniform LTA, medical allow etc for service staff, executives & HOD.
It is quiet urgent

From India, Mumbai
In general, the basic salary is 40 % of the total and all the other salary components (like CCA, HRA, LTA, etc) are % of basic salary. For example,
Total Salary - Rs 10000
Basic will be - Rs 4000 (40 % of total salary)
HRA - Rs 1600 (40 % of Basic)
CCA - Rs 1600 (40 % of Basic)
LTA - Rs 1600 (40 % of Basic)
Education Allowance - Rs 800 (20 % of Basic)
and so on.....

Hi Pradeep,

The components of the salary break up may be as below, you can prepare it at the suitability of your own. HRA would be 40 or 50% of basic.


HRA 40 - 50% is exempted from Taxes, depends on class of city

CCA - 825/- is exempted from tax

Other Allowance

Mobile Reimbursement

Medical Reimbursement of 1250/month is exempted from tax

Gross Per Month = Sum of all the above.

Gross Per Annum= 12*Gross/Month

PF Contribution= 12% of Basic/Annum

ESI Contribution = 4.75% of Gross/Annum

Medical = The mediclaim facility provided to an employee who are not covered under ESI as the maximum ceiling for ESI is 10000/Month.

Getting more than this will be covered under Mediclaim or it depends on company policy

EX-Gratia/Bonus = A fixed amount as Bonus

Annual Fixed Gross Cost= Gross/Annum+ Ex-gratia

Annual Total Cost = AFGC + PF+ESIC

Annual total cost is also called as CTC.

Apart from this Food coupons, Holiday package and Furnishing items are included in their CTC.

Hope it must helped you to clear your queries up to some extent.

I have seen Amits postings on this subject often. I do agree with him
But I will also give another way of looking at formulating this policy.
1. 40% shall go towards Basic
2. 30% will go towards monthly perks/benefits/allowances to suit Income Tax requirements
3. 30% shall be assigned towards annual benefits like LTA Bonus, Performance pay Medical etc.
When we take CTC as 100, then apply above principle. It works
Ideally we can look at 33% under each head.
