Author of blog does not accepts any responsibility in relation to the accuracy, completeness, usefulness or otherwise, of the contents.

A request was made by a candidate regarding salary structure of newly appointed  Postal Assistants/Sorting Assistant (PA/SA) and the details are as follows

B.P = Basic Pay
D.A = Dearness Allowance
H.R.A = House Rent Allowance
T.A = Travelling Allowance

The above are used for calculating the total salary of a Postal/Sorting Assistant

PA/SA’s are included in the Pay Scale of  5200-20200  with a grade pay of 2400.

Calculation:

1. Basic Pay (BP) = 9910 (7510 + 2400)

2. Dearness Allowance = Dearness Allowance (DA) is given by the Government in every six months ie, in January and July every year. From Jan 2013, the Dearness Allowance is 80%. Thus the present DA is 80% of 9910 which works out to 7928.

3)    House Rent Allowance (HRA) = HRA is calculated based on the city where you are working. In India the cities have been classified into three categories as “X”, “Y” and “Z”.

X' Cities - 30% HRA
 States Cities Classified as "X" Andhra Pradesh Hyderabad (UA) Delhi Delhi (UA) Karnataka Bangaluru (UA) Mahrashtra Greater Mumbai (UA) Tamilnadu Chennai (UA) West Bengal Kolkatta (UA)

Y' Cities - 20% HRA

Remaining cities –      Z' Cities - 10% HRA

In X cities = 30 % of 9910 = 2973

In Y Cities = 20 % of 9910 = 1982

In Z Cities = 10 % of 9910 = 991

Travelling Allowance = TA is fixed as Rs.800 + the DA %

of 800. So at present TA is 800 + 80% of 800 = 1440.

Gross Salary works out to: (For Newly Appointed PA)

In X class cities salary will be = 9910+7928+2973+1440   =

Rs. 22251

In Y class cities will be = 9910+7928+1982+1440 =

Rs. 21260

In Z class cities will be = 9910+7928+991+1440

= Rs. 20269
