HR has to abide by the law of the land and cannot act arbitrarily.
You can initially raise the dispute before the management by sending a protest letter. Make sure you have a proper acknowledgment of the said letter for future reference, if required.

But equally important is whether the change has any adverse impact on you, both short and long term.

You need to check the affect of change , both long short term and long term before taking action.Also seek clarification from HR as what will be effect on PF contribution, on gratuity etc AND reason for the change.

Reg. HR changing salary structure-
Sometimes, HR will change, modify the allowances due to changes in PF,ESI, IT Acts etc., to protect the interest of Co. & Also the employees concerned. HR also mentions in Apptt.Orders that the Management may change, merge Basic, HRA etc., to take care of such changes in any Act; but will inform employees before doing it - to avoid unpleasantness later;
So; as informed by Seniors, pl. contact HR for the changes; if it has resulted in any loss to the employee.
