Dear Subscriber,

At the outset, we need to be clear on definitions of CTC and Salary. Salary is the cash component and forms a part of CTC. Then, there are certain benefits paid by employer on behalf of employee such as PF, ESI, Gratuity, etc. Both these components form the CTC. Salary structures are generally derived by keeping CTC as the basis. For example: Basic pay is around 40% of CTC. Then other non-taxable allowances such as HRA, LTA, etc which are again carved out of the same CTC. The balance (residual amount) in the CTC will be paid as Special Allowance or Flexible Allowance. This forms the Gross salary. Hope this helps.

As long as you adhere with the Payment of Wages Rules, it will not be a concern whether you pay as CTC or as a Gross salary. Wage rules differ from states and type of industry, you can refer more about this here.
