Dear Varun,

This is something that is quite common wherein companies "verbally" promise perks and incentives but do not deliver on them. The important question is: Do you have this as a written commitment from the company on an email or a company letterhead? If yes, then that is something that you legally fight for. Else you cannot.

I can understand that you are quite frustrated with the company. Have you tried speaking with your Boss as to why you were not given the promised hike? Normally, the Boss holds the key to all appraisals within a department? Is this something specific to you or a general trend across the organisation? If this is an across the board decision, then you as an individual lodging a complaint will not help much. Sometimes companies dont perform well and hence dont give hike to employees.

If you enjoy your work and see growth potential, then I would suggest that you FIX this problem patiently though talks and dialogue before hitting any forum. You can always start searching for another job and when you file your resignation mention this as a reason for leaving the company.
