It will impact an individual that on reduction in his basic pay , other perks and allownces will be reduced if linked with basic. similarly on reducing basic pay PF contribution will be reduced EL Encashment, Gratuity, etc. are also reduced.

Reduction of Basic pay is possible as a measure of disciplinary action against an employee, provided a provision to this effect is there in service rules by which the employee is governed. In other words, this will be like a penalty which can be inflicted after giving him adequeate opportunity of defending him or her and following the procedure for imposing such a penalty. But, I am not sure, in Private Sector this procedure of giving adequeate opportunity of defence is being followed or not. However, arbitrary action of such kind may invite legal implications.
