Minimum wages are declared by the central govt. And the DA is revised every 6 months. Do we take basic and da for 26 or 30 days calculation of monthly salary?
From India, Navi Mumbai

It will depend upon the notification. Unless otherwise provided daily rates of Basic and DA are multiplied by 26 to arrive at monthly gross. In most of the cases there will be rates of wages (basic) payable every month with a VDA per month. For arriving at the daily rate you will have to divide the monthly rate by 26. At the same time if the daily rate of wages is separately mentioned that will be for a day, and DA should also be calculated for a day, and the same can be multiplied by 26 to get monthly salary.

so sir the weekly days off too are included in this monthly salary calculated on 26 days basis
From India, Navi Mumbai

The purpose of fixing monthly basic and monthly DA and then dividing it by 26 to make it daily average is to ensure the weekly off payment. Therefore, there is no need to pay weekly off payment separately. The same principle can be followed for fixing the monthly wages wherein the daily rate is notified. Therefore, the daily rates can be multiplied by 26 to arrive at monthly wages

The calculation of monthly salary for minimum wages, particularly the components of Basic and Dearness Allowance (DA), typically depends on the standard practices and guidelines set by local labor laws and company policies. Here's a detailed explanation to clarify this:

Standard Practice for Calculation
Daily Wage Calculation:

Minimum Wages Act: According to the Minimum Wages Act in India and similar regulations in other countries, the daily wage is generally calculated based on 26 working days per month. This accounts for the assumption of a six-day workweek with four weekly off days (Sundays) in a month.
Formula: Daily Wage = (Monthly Wage) / 26
Monthly Wage Calculation:

If the daily wage is known, the monthly wage is calculated by multiplying the daily wage by the number of actual working days in the month.

Key Considerations
26 Days Calculation: This is standard for determining the minimum wage as it aligns with the usual number of working days in a month, excluding weekly offs.

30 Days Calculation: Some organizations may opt to calculate based on 30 days to standardize salary calculations across different months, regardless of the number of days. However, this is less common for minimum wage calculations as it might underrepresent the daily wage rate.
Practical Application
For Employers: When determining and distributing salaries, most employers use the 26-day calculation to comply with minimum wage laws. This ensures that employees receive appropriate compensation relative to the standard number of working days in a month.
For Employees: Understanding whether your salary is calculated on a 26-day or 30-day basis is crucial, as it affects the daily wage rate and overall earnings.

For calculating the monthly salary for minimum wages, Basic and DA are typically calculated on a 26-day basis rather than a 30-day basis. This standard aligns with labor laws and ensures fair compensation based on the standard number of working days in a month. Always refer to specific local labor laws for precise guidelines and compliance requirements.

From India, Mumbai

As per Minimum Wage Notifications applicable to Tamilnadu
"To arrive at the daily wage the monthly wage shall be divided by 26 & To arrive at the monthly wage the daily wage has to be multiplied by 30".

Though, the rise in DA points are notified by the Central Government from time to time, the DA is computed based on the average rise in points from January to December and is payable during the subsequent Financial year from April to March.
