Salary hike calculator

To calculate salary hike let’s consider following example

These are the rates of a government employee and the rates are according to the 7th pay commission

Assuming following rates

Rs 5200 = the minimum starting basic salary for employee

20200= the maximum salary paid to the employee

Rs 1800 = The Grade Pay based on your rank

Calculate hike percentage

When employee is appointed in this pay scale, Basic Salary for the purpose of increment will be:

Rs 5200 + 1800 = 7000

Next year, he/she will be given an increment of 3% i.e. = 3% of 7000 = 210

Hence the basic salary for the next year will be = Rs 5200 +Rs 210 = 5410

In the same way, employee will be getting increment every year till he/she reaches the upper limit of Rs 20200

Hike Percentage Calculator

Work out the difference (increase) between the two salaries i.e.

Increase of salary = New salary - Original salary or old salary

Then: divide the increase by the original number and multiply the answer by 100.

% salary increase = Increase of salary ÷ Original salary × 100.

Salary hike percentage formula
