How to Calculate Night Duty Allowance

Formula to Calculate NDA

The approved formula to calculate NDA is

Night Duty Allowance (NDA) = [ (Basic Pay + Dearness Allowance) / 200 ]

Check here how to calculate NDA in detail

Example : 

Basic Pay : 20300
Current DA : 17% = 3451
No of NDA Hrs : 80 Mins. (8 Hrs)

NDA = [(20300+3451) / 200]
NDA = 120 per hour
For 8 Hours = 120 x 8

Total NDA Per Day = Rs. 960
