How to Calculate on hand salary from CTC?

Ans: 2
It is simple to calculate the approx on hand salary per month based on certain assumption. 

  • Bonus amount is equal to 10% of your total CTC

  • PF deduction is approximated value

Example 1: 
Your CTC amount = 6 lacs
CTC - bonus (Yearly) = 6.0 lacs - 0.6 lacs = 5.4 lacs
Approx month amount: 540,000 / 12 = 45,000
Actual on hand with Income Taxt Deduction: 45,000 - 4,000 = 41,000

Example 2: 
Your CTC amount = 8 lacs
CTC - bonus (Yearly) = 8.0 lacs - 0.8 lacs = 7.2 lacs
Approx month amount: 720,000 / 12 = 60,000
Actual on hand with Income Taxt Deduction: 60,000 - 5,000 = 55,000

Ans 7: 
This is most frequently asked question on my blog for some the article on my blog. This is million dollar question as there is no direct answer to this question. It will always depend on many factors. Some of the factor are listed below.

Level 52 is Specialist. Specialist is equivalent to Team lead in other company. Where you need to work individually or can lead the team. The next promotion level is architect in Robert Bosch. I have mentioned the complete hierarchical level. You need to have around 5 years of experience to get this level in an offer letter. 

Que 9: 
How much can I expect bonus per year in Robert Bosch ?

In variable part of Pay-EAV, it is written as "Company performance related Pay(1.0)/Company Goal Achievement(EAV Rating 1.0), and the amount is approximately 1/10 of my CTC.

Ans 9: 
You need to consider the package as rating 3 by default. If you perform extremely good then only you will get rating 1 which is possible in the special case. So you can assume your package with rating 3, 3+ or 2 to avoid the surprise at letter stage towards the end of the year. In most cases you will get the bonus higher than the amount mentioned in your offer letter for the particular rating you hold. As compared to another company Bosch is transparent to give the correctly committed bonus amount to an employee.

Document Verification on Joining day? 

Ans 12:

Bosch has more focus on document verification and requirement original certificate to show them on joining day. They require all the experience and relieving certificates from the past employee. Many times they will verify the address also where lived and worked also. If you don't have complete document then they may ask you to come to next joining cycle day to join the company with all the required certificates. 

So be prepared with all the certificates (original + xerox) mentioned by them to submit while joining.
