Indian Law/not paid as per hike letter


I had joined a company in Apr'2011 and  after serving about 2 years got a hike letter on Jan'2013 mentioning that hike salary is effective from July'2012.So till Dec'2012 they have been paying me in the older version of my salary Shall i payable to that outstanding amount of 6 months?IF they deny to pay that amount is there any law to enforce them.pls suggest.

You are entitled to claim hike salary from its effective date i.e. July,2013 as promised by your employer vide their letter dated January,2013.They are legally bound to pay arrear salary within a reasonable time.Please send a polite representation to your Management to pay your arrear salary dues since 1st July,2012.However, in case no response or negative response is received,you are to serve a legal notice threatening to take suitable legal action, if it is not paid within a reasonable date.Ultimately,you may have to file a recovery suit against the company alongwith penal interest for delay as well as causing unnecessary mental harassment to you.Your advocate will guide you properly in the matter.Meanwhile try for a change.
