Arrears denied after wage revision

I worked in United India Insurance Company (PSU), from 2013 to 2015.
Our Wage revision was pending from 2012. I left it in 2015, and joined another job.
In 2016 we United India Insurance gets wage revision for period 2012 to 2017. Effective/implemented from 1st August 2012.
However the notification says "Provided that the employees whose resignations had been accepted or whose services had been terminated during the period from the 1st day of August, 2012 and the date of publication of this
Scheme, shall not be eligible for the arrears on account of revision under this Scheme."
This denies me my arrears for the period i worked there just because I didnt work their till the day this was published 2016.
I came to know about this in 2017, as i didnt got any arrears i came to know about it little late. Then i tried to seek some information whether its right to deny arrears like this.
I never heard such denial, I work in PSB and even in these banks when wage revision happens, no one is denied just because they left the organisation before settlement notice is published. Everyone gets their arrears for the period they served.
Now I am looking for some legal advice, Whether i can challenge this in courts or tribunals.

Employer cancelling past years utilised leaves

I work in Public Sector Bank, in Retail/Branch banking.
I had taken my Casual leave and Earned leaves in previous years when i was outstation. And there were Extraordinary Leaves when i was not well. On two occassions my absence extended the leaves available to me as i was unwell to travel back and join. I was okay with remaining absence as unpaid as i didnt had that many leaves.
Now when i am resigning to join other organisation.
The HR comes in and says, you cant combine xvz leaves with abc leaves etc etc and told me lot of confusing rules. Also said your utilised leaves will be undone and expired as they were of previous year.
Basically they want to penalise me and make me pay money.

In the rules for leaves, initially i wasnt aware of them in detail as i was new and never got time to go through them... Public Sector Bank.
Recently i went through the rules which says that if there is any absence not entered in system they will be marked as unpaid leave after 15 days. This they never did in 1.5 years. Had they done it i would have known about this issue.
Also leaves marked in the system, which the system accepted, now they say those will be cancelled.
Though i wasnt aware these detailed rules, also my supervisor approved my casual leaves and earned leaves even he didnt told me all this as even he i guess dnt know.
But even the HR didnt worked on my absences in time which was 15 days. Had they did that i would have corrected it and used my leaves.
Now they say my leaves will be wasted and i would have to pay money for all those leaves apart from unpaid leaves and also holidays.

I am confused. Do i have any recourse in Labour Laws.
