Basic Pay/Basic Salary
Basic salary is the fixed amount that an employer pays to an employee without adding any allowances or subtracting any deductions. Therefore, bonuses, overtime, dearness allowance, etc are not a part of basic pay. For more information about Basic Salary click here.
Allowances are the financial benefits an employer provides above the Basic Salary to his employees. These allowances differ based on company policy, industry, job profile, and department. The template adds all the following amounts to form the gross salary.
Allowances may include the following:
Dearness Allowance (DA)
House Rent Allowance (HRA)
Travel Allowance (TA)
Child Education Allowance (CEA)
Click on each Allowance to know more about it in detail.
Gross salary = Basic + Total of all Allowances
The Employer contribution consists of Provident Fund (PF), Employee State Insurance (ESI), and Exgratia (bonus).
Employer contribution to the Provident fund is a total of 12 % of the basic salary. Employer Contribution to ESI is 3.25 % of the gross salary. The cell consists of a predefined formula.
Thus, it automatically calculates the Provident Fund amount as well as the ESI amount. ESI is only applicable if the salary of the employee is less than Rs. 21000.
Hence, if the gross salary is above that amount template will automatically display 0. Exgratia or bonus consists of the amount that an employer pays to the employee with no obligation or liability to pay it back.
Furthermore, Reimbursement items depend on the designation of the employee. Reimbursements are those amounts that an employee gets reimbursed based on the amount spent actually under a particular head.
These reimbursements include excessive medical reimbursements, conveyance or travel reimbursements, or Telephone reimbursements.
Moreover, CTC/PM is the total salary of an employee without deductions. Keep in mind that CTC also includes the employee contribution, which is not payable every month but is a part of the salary.
CTC/PM (per month) = Gross salary + Employer Contribution + Reimbursements.
CTC/PA (per annum) = CTC PM X 12 months.

Employee Contribution To PF
Employee Contribution to EPS
