This query is : Resolved
I worked in a research institute for approximately a year...the probation period being the same...but for the last 3 months, the institute has delayed payment of my stipend...and after six months of non-payment..is citing failure to meet deadlines and absence as an excuse even when I have submitted work without pay...is it better to file an FIR against the directors?

No. You have to file a case in a court (CAT/HC) by consulting a local lawyer.

Claim your stipend along with interest. Issue legal notice through advocate, and proceed.

serve a legal notice and go for filing a money suit.
