You can also use this calculator to test various scenarios and ask your employer to structure your salary accordingly.

  1. It seems that the calculation is wrong for Figure #2 Actual house rent paid by you less 10% of your basic salary; here 10% has been reduced for only one month; not for 12 months i.e. it should be (10% per month) *12.

  2. what is the definition of salary after the implementation of 6th pay commission is it only basic pay grade pay or is it basic pay grade pay and non practicing allowance please clarify

  3. Hi, could you please let me know how HRA is to be calculated – My basic pay (consolidated pay) is 48000, the employer do not give any HRA neither do they deduct any TDS. I have paid advance tax but I have no idea how to calculate HRA.
    Thanks in advance.

  4. I went through your HRA calculator- but because my employer does not give me a HRA- the calculator shows HRA as Zero.
    I want to know if there is provision for a person getting a consolidated salary to get an exemption for the rent we pay?
    Thanks once again
