It is presumed that you had continued in service till 30th June 2020 .
Irrespective of your having served the required period of notice you are still in service until relieved on 31st June 2010. In the meanwhile the company has announced specified percent of salary cut defending upon grades presumably from 1st April 2020 due to prevailing covid-19 situation. This ruling has been applied in your case too and hence it is in order.
Naturally if you had left the service before 31st March 2020, your salary would remain in tact as the salary cut has come into force from 1st April 2020 .
Where is the question of deferred wages in that case .
In such circumstances ,the company ought to have issued a circular /mail to all employees making known its intention to cut salary in certain percentage depending on grades , due to the adverse business impact of arising out of Covid-19 situation and the compelling reason to do so . In such an event , a standard format / authorization being designed and get it signed by every employee before going ahead with salary cut .
If the salary cut involves workmen ( bargainable employee)/ Unionized cadre) , the management used to have a bipartite negotiation with union/ workmen representative and an MOU (with clear cut terms and condition as to how much deduction , from when and how long etc ) being signed before proceeding further .
When such an arrangement ( either issuance of circular or MOU as the ase may be) has been made , it is applicable to employees who served notice to employers as a implied condition of service.
