Are employee pension contributions deducted from gross salary or net salary?

I just noticed that my employer (a LTD Company) has deducted my personal pension contribution from my net salary. Is this correct?

I thought personal pension contributions are deducted from the gross salary.

I should appreciate if some one can advise me before I approach my employer.

With thanks

Usually Gross for Tax - Net for NIC's
