Hi Rekha,
Appraisal & salary increment are two different things.
The process of appraisal emphasizes on assessing the individuals on the basis of certain skills & Competencies, which are required to perform their job & on the basis of KRA's(Key result areas)
So, after the appraisal process the individual comers to know about his strengths and weaknesses.
Where as increment in salary is a part of compensation planning process & inputs from appraisal are required while deciding the increment in salary.

Performance appraisal is an evaluation method where the employee’s work effectiveness is measured using operational criteria such as performance metrics, social behaviors, Objectives... it aims on how well the employees meet job specifications and what can be done to achieve higher productivity .
Now Salary Increment is just one of the positive outcomes on Appraisal. An employer may choose to review the salary so as to reward the good performance. Not all appraisals are necessarily Accompanied with salary increments.
A performance appraisal decision can affect the status of employee in regards to their retention, termination, promotion, transfer, salary increase or decrease, or admission into a training program.

I had recently joined in a IT comapny 2 months ago, i know that i'm not eligible for appraisal, but they promised me that they will give me hike after 3 months.And my doubt is if my salary is been increased so it is called as increment or what it is called.
Please clarify , hope my question is clear.
