Correct Answer - Option 1 : Rs.74.00

Given:

Basic salary = Rs.7700

Old DA = 125%

New DA = 132%

Old Tax deduction (TDS) = 20%

New Tax deduction (TDS) = 22%

Concept Used:

Gross salary = Basic salary + Dear allowance

Net Salary = Gross Salary - Tax deduction

Calculation:

Old DA = 125% of basic salary

⇒ (125/100) × 7700 = Rs.9625

Old Gross salary = Basic salary + Dear allowance

Old Gross salary = 7700 + 9625 = Rs.17325

Old TDS = 20% of Gross salary

⇒ (20/100) × 17325 = Rs.3465

Old Net Salary = Gross Salary - Tax deduction

Old Net salary = 17325 - 3465 = Rs.13860      ----(i)

New DA = 132% of basic salary

⇒ (132/100) × 7700 = Rs.10164

New Gross salary = Basic salary + Dear allowance

New Gross salary = 7700 + 10164 = Rs.17864

New TDS = 22% of Gross salary

⇒ (22/100) × 17864 = Rs.3930

New Net Salary = Gross Salary - Tax deduction

New Net salary = 17325 - 3930 = Rs.13934      ----(ii)

Subtracting eqn i  from ii

Increase in Net salary = 13934 - 13860 = Rs. 74

∴ The salary got  increased by Rs. 74
