Salary of a newly appointed Postal/Sorting Assistant (PA/SA)

Friends…we have been receiving many queries regarding the salary structure of a newly appointed PA/SA. In this post we are bring you the details on the same. Hope this helps you…

The salary structure of  Postal Assistants/Sorting Assistant (PA/SA) cadre in Department of Posts, Government of India is based on the following parameters:

B.P = Basic Pay
D.A = Dearness Allowance
H.R.A = House Rent Allowance
T.A = Travelling Allowance
The above parameters are used in calculating the total salary of a Postal/Sorting Assistant.
PA/SA cadre, as per sixth central pay commission which came into effect in 2006, is included in the Pay Scale of  5200-20200  with a grade pay of 2400. And the good news is that Finance Minister has already announced the setting up of seventh central pay commission and Justice Ashok Kumar Mathur has been appointed as commission and  it will come into effect in 2016!!!!

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 January 2014 the Dearness Allowance is 100%. Thus the present DA is 100% of 9910 which works out to 9910.
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
4)     Travelling Allowance = TA is fixed as Rs.800 + the DA % of 800. So at present TA is 800 + 100% of 800 = 1600.
Gross Salary works out to:
·        In X class cities salary will be = 9910+9910+2973+1600 = 24,393
·        In  Y class cities will be = 9910+9910+1982+1600 = 23,402
·        In Z class cities will be = 9910+9910+991+1600= 22,411
