Hi friends,
I am new to the forum.
I am serving in Defence, planning for a change to the corporate sector. I find it difficult in calculating my annual CTC. I would like to know, whether it is only as per my salary statement or should I include other benefits like free medical facilities, accommodation, ration, clothings, bonus, gratuity, leave travel benefits, pension, insurance etc. If yes, how can we calculate the monetary value of the intangibles and facilities which we get in forces. Hope I will get a detailed response in this subject from all.
Thank you,

I would like to inform you, you should not only count CTC as per your salary statement but should include other benefits like free medical facilities (which premium paid by organization), accommodation, ration, clothings, bonus, leave travel benefits, transportation facilities, telecommunication facilities(if your mobile, resident phone bill paid by the organization etc, after your five years services you can count Gratuity.

most of the private companies have now removed intangibles income as it comes under FBT...
in private sector it's mostly divided into following parts:
Basic: 40% of CTC
Convenance: 800 pm
PF: 12% of basic
Medical: 15000 p.a.
LTA: 12000 p.a.
Variable & Personal pay- if applicable......
But companies also have one account for Reimbursement:
e.g. telephone (call bills), transfer bills, relocation bills, hospital insurance, pension plans, sick leave, business travel trip, awards, performance incentives, bonus....etc.

As the name suggest all expenses incurred on behalf of the employee by the company form part of the CTC. The typical co,ponents of CTC are
1. Basic
2.HRA and all other allowances(Conveyance,Dearness,special etc)
3.PF and Gratuity payable by the co.
4.Insurance payable by co.
5.Canteen/Uniform etc.
Hope this clarifies

CTC may includes : Basic + HRA + Medical Allowance+ LTA (depends on co policy)+ Bonus + P.F Contribution (by co)+ ESIC contribution (by co) + Travelling Allowances+CCA K. Shaikh

Hi all,
I am new to this forum and its a very informative site ! I am working as HR executive in a start up recruitment consultancy. I need some inputs on the topicslisted below. Can anyone help me out please ?
> What is the salary structure (Basic and Incentive structure) for business developers in a recruitment consultancy ?
> What could be the leave poilcy for a start up consultancy?
Thanks in advance !

The concept of showing the Salary of an employee in the form of CTC (Cost To Company) is a new style idea developed by the companies to attract employees. Since the CTC includes all cost to be incurred by employing a person projecting the employment to a period coming after 5 years in addition to the actual remuneration payable every month, the amount OFFERED will be a big one. This is just to attract employees. I have come across to see a salary structure with medical reimbursement made a part of CTC. The poor employee expected the same also as receivable every month. But he was denied of it saying adequate proof is not given for having spent the amount. Similarly for many the meaning of Gratuity is nor aware. They feel that they will get it every month! They do not know the gratuity is payable only after they complete 5 years with the employer.

Therefore, do not belive in CTC concept. When accepting a job think whether the monthly salary alone is acceptable or not. Do not take the CTC since there is no where mentioned about BTC ( Benefit To the Company by employing a person- in fact if there is cost involved there should be benefit also !!!!)

Hi Friends,
It is a simple topic, but still a confusing one i think. Anyways our friend Amit as got the solution for his problem.
Amit what all have told is correct Gratuity is part of CTC as the name says Cost To Company i.e total cost that the company will incur on you. Hope many of our friends have got this clarified.
