regular salary not being paid


Dear sirs,

I am an SBI employee.  in 2015, due to some personal issues, i had to go on unauthorized leave.  I rejoined the bank after few spells of such absences and a domestic enquiry was held and which also concluded recently.   the absences were in total 135 days from march 2015.  with due permission i was permitted to resume duties since 18th november 2015 after which i have been attending regularly till date and appropriate leave was also recommended by my manager to sanctioning authority.

my salary was withheld for the period of April 2015 and from 1st July 2015 to indefinitely.  even though no salary has been paid for the loss of pay period, the salary for my attended days is also not being paid which is almso 7 months due.  in february, I had made a written request to my manager, but in reply they told me that the payment will be considered only after sanction of the leave 'Extraordinary Leave", whcih to my knowledge could take months since i have seen such cases where the sanction of such leave took 4 to 6 months for a few colleagues of mine.

now even after the conclusion of domestic enquiry and disciplinary proceeding by way of stoppage of one increment, my salary has not been resumed.  during the time of enqiry, i was not suspended either and am still continuing to attending to my duties regularly. 

My requests to the management seem to be falling on deaf ears even after I have clearly shown them my financial problems and multiple times requested for resumption of the same through my union representatives and myself.

I am helpless regarding what I should do, since i have dues to pay and family to take care of.  please input your suggestions.

SBI must be having a well spelt out HR policy concerning these issues. It seems you are attending regular duties with consent of bank management since 18th Nov., 2015 . Do you want to say that You are not paid monthly salary since the date of resumption in service. There can not be any provision to withheld salary of staff for the period of regular work .So, if my above assumption is right , pl. file an application under RTI Act to the jurisdictional PIO of your establishment to find out whether there is any cogent reason behind such stoppage of salary besides the one quoted by you. The Employees union office bearers may also be in aposition to advise in these internal policy matters.

Keep on representing, under proper acknowledgment,  and first of all get your absence regularised as  'Extraordinary Leave".

thank you sirs, for your inputs.  there are no reasons to stop my salary as the salary payment for loss of pay period was already stopped and the period which i am entitled to more than exceeds the dues to be recovered if any.

Our bank has a separate department HRMS to look after the disbursement of salaries, but that also works under the instructions of branches.  they just process the transactions and such.  regarding following up with my union office bearers, they have been saying they will look in to the matter, they even promised that there will be no delay this month.  as i have recieved a blank pay slip even this month, i have to find a way to get them to do what they should.  all the time the excuses the management are giving is that of some communication problem and blaming the HRMS department for negligence of miscommunication.

i have been just trying to not to ruin the professional relations.  can you please give me suggestion as to what to and what not to ask in an RTI application regarding this matter and point me in the right direction. 

once again, thank you

It is good that you have received the salary slip.

Engagae the management (Branch/circle/region/zone etc )and let them state in writing that the attendnace has been marked and sent for processing of salary and delay is at HRMS.

 

Let union also minute it and record.

RTI is one of the options.

Dear Mr. Jagdeesh,

If you have the recent payslip, record of attendance in office , proof of resumption of dutyand copy of your representation to management for release of salary   alongwith details of dues recoverable if any, you can very well approach your circle head in Grievance cell after seeking permission of your station senior for resolving the stalemate.

You may also avoid proceeding on unauthorized leave, again.

that was a brief bad period of my life involving my marriage, parents and in-laws and money-minded mediators who almost ruined my life and marriage instead of helping me.  it took some time and stubbornness and patience and some support from my branch manager to get out of that situation.

I have no plans or wishes to get into such situations. once was enough.  it won't happen, ever.
