4.Conveyance charges
5.TA On transfers, deputations, official tours etc

central government salary is divided into various pay bands
there are mainly 4 paybands
GROUP A starts wit your 5400 grade pay tats in payband 3
as in your case u have grade pay 2000 so you in payband 2
5240+2000=7240 will be your basic....then each year you will get an increment its 3% of your current basic
along wit this DA=51% ie 7240+3620(50% of 7240 + 1% of tat)=106860+1068{whenever DA crosses 50% it s taken like this}in addition to all these HRA with respect ot ur residing place its 10 OR 20 OR 30 %...Then travel allowance tat also depends on your residing place......if u r married family planning allowance etc
so in total
if u are in a metropolitan city
you will get around 13500-15000 rupees per month
you may be in a metropolitan city so its nearly 14200 rupees you can expect
when you get your next promotion .....since you are in intelligence buraeu it will take atleast 8 years or more or otherwise you will get ASSURED CAREER PROGRESSION tats similar to promotion afetr 10 years of continous service without any promotion....you will run auto matically into next payband tats 2400///// ie 5240+2400 + others similar to i have explained above(app 15000-16000 as per present conditions)......when you reach 9300 + 4200(app 32000 as per present) you will be entering into pay band 3 from your present position it will take atleast take 24 years
jobs in intelligence bureau is very exciting so i advice you strongly take up this job ////////// by 30 years of service you can even reach deputy intelligence officer(9300+ 4600)..if u get promotions at the right time
