PhD salary???

Hi all, I'm soon going to start my PhD study in the University of Bern. I was initially told that my gross salary would be about 2750 CHF per month. But my supervisor later said, after reductions, I could get only 2100 CHF per month!

Is this high reduction specific for Bern region, or am I missing something? Is PhD studentship considered a full time or part time job in Switzerland? I had heard that some of the tax will be paid back to me at the end of my study, is this true??

My German is not great and I was not able to find anything in English concerning these, so any info would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance!
