There is no law governing the increment excercise. However the salary after increment should not be lower than minimum wages rate.
Increment and appraisal are two different things. Appraisal process is for the measurement of competancy of an employee whereas increment is reward for acheiving parameters laid down in appraisal process.
In most of the organisations appraisal may happen two times in a year whereas increment happens only once in a year.
