    like a bolt from the blue

    Is it grammatical and meaningful?

    I got 20% increment in my last month salary like a bolt from the blue.

    See above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Alternatively:

    'The 20% increment in my salary last month came as a bolt from the blue'.
