I have an offer with Company A (5.75 Lakhs) and Company B (5.25 Lakhs) in both Bangalore., but salary structures are different in both the companies. Since just 1 day left to join bit confused to decide on which company to join.
1. Little far from my staying place and Cab is not free. (Around 20 KM)
2. Basic Pay is less compared to Company B

Company B:
1. Around 15 KM with Cab free.
2. Company B started in Bangalore just 5 months before.

Anyone please let me know which company I can join?

We do not allow discussions of specific companies here. You can read our policy here. I have attempted to clean up your post, and I think I got it all right, but please go back and verify I didn't confuse things.

I fail to see how criteria 1 and 2 -even when combined- would form a basis on which to decide where you want to work. Aren't there other differences between the companies, or other criteria you have?

Assuming everything else is equal:- How much time do you save? Assuming you are working 250 days in a year for 8 hrs, 5.25 lakhs comes to Rs 262.5 per hour. If you are going to spend an hour more commuting to and from the higher paying job, that means you are losing Rs 262.5 per day. Rs 262.5 per day for 250 days comes to Rs 65,000. Why would you lose Rs 65,000 to go to a job that pays Rs 50,000?

Of course, this is assuming that everything else is equal, and you don;t want to move.
