How the SSC Salary is calculated?

Classification according to Types of Cities:

The 7th Pay Commission has proposed the following HRA which varies according to the types of cities. Cities are classified into Class X, Y and Z based on factors like population, cost of living and urbanization.

  • Class X – 8 Cities only- 24% HRA (Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, and Pune)
  • Class Y – Around 100 Towns (With a Population above 5 Lakhs) – 16% HRA
  •  Class Z – Rural Areas – 8% HRA

DA = Dearness Allowance is 0% as it is merged with the basic pay. Dearness Allowance is revised every six months. If you work for organizations like the CBI, IB and other Security agencies you get an extra 20% of Basic Pay as Special Security Allowance(SSA). There are several other allowances like SDA, Medical, Canteen, Specs, Briefcase to the add to the list. However, we avoided these to make it simple to calculate the salary.

Example of Calculation of Salary for Examiner Posts :

Let us calculate the salary of an Examiner posted in Mumbai who has a Grade-pay of 4600 Rs.

According to 7th Central Pay Commission Pay Matrix Table, The Basic Pay of an Examiner would be  Rs. 44,900. Mumbai is Class X City and hence HRA would be 24% of Basic Pay. There would be no dearness allowance.

  • HRA = 24% of Basic Pay of 44,900   = Rs. 10,776
  • DA  = 0.
  • Transport allowance =Rs. 3600
  • Now Gross pay = Basic Pay + HRA +DA +TA
  • Calculation of Gross Pay = Rs.44900 + Rs.10,776 + 0 + Rs.3600
  • Gross Pay Total = Rs.59,276 ~ Rs.60,000(approximately).

Inhand Salary and Deductions on Gross Pay:

  • NPS (National Pension Scheme) = 10% on Basic Pay is deducted as NPS = Rs. 4490
  • Employee Provident Fund(EPF) = It is based on the employee’s Basic pay which is 12% of salary (Basic Pay + Dearness Allowance).
  • EPF  = 12% of  Basic Pay = Rs. 5388
  • TDS and other taxes like Education Cess will be deducted.
  • Total Deduction = NPS+EPF+Tax(TDS)+Other deductions = Rs. 9000 (approx)
  •  Inhand Salary  = Gross salary – Total Deduction
  • Rs. 60,000 – Rs. 9000 (approx)
  • Inhand Salary would be approximately Rs. 51,000 in a Class X City 

In this way, we have calculated the In-hand salary of Various SSC employees belonging to Group B and Group C posts. The in-hand salary has been calculated for various grade pay and based on the classification of cities:

Grade-pay X city Y city Z city
2400 Rs.31,000 Rs.27,000 Rs.25,000
2800 Rs.35,000 Rs.31,000 Rs.28,000
4200 Rs.41,000 Rs.36,000 Rs.33,000
4600 Rs.51,000 Rs.46,000 Rs.42,000
4800 Rs.55,000 Rs.49,000 Rs.45,000
