The act of your company is totally unethical. If you copy of the e-mail and also copy of your 1st resignation letter, attach both and send a fresh letter to your HR asking for explanation in writing "Why they deducted 1month salary" when you had complied as per your contract.
Once your get a response, and they do not pay you back, you may send a notice to them through a Lawyer informing them that you may file a case against them in Court of Labor.

Anonymousi want to ask a question,i worked with a health care institution for more than 07 years and one fine day my controlling officer conveys me that management has abolished your post and you put your papers. i put my resign with one notice and clearly mentioning that because of such decisions of management iam resigning. my resignation was accepted immediately and was relieved immediately. in this case as far as i think i should be eligible for one month advance salary as i gave notice but its the management not accepted and relieved me immediately. kindly advice
You should feel happy to be free from this company, which has adopted a very unethical practice.
However, focus on your career and move forward. Consider this as a bad dream. Do not waste your time in getting in to legal battles. I would suggest try to get a "good certificate " of employment, which may help you to keep your CV in good shape.
During your journey ahead, you will come across al types of employers. Be wise from your past experience.

mrnsarmaDear Mr Ravi
Read the contents and feelings & suggestions of co-members.
Always remember, to be safer side you should have a copy
or proof of your submissions to the Company.
Coming back to your case, such Seniors spoil the Company image
as well a healthy Organisation. They should be thought a lesson well,
so that others would be careful to do such unlawful acts.
In my opinion apart from taking the best Lawyer's opinion,
you should also make a complaint with the Labour Commissionerate
who is competent authority to take a immediate and suitable action
to save the Employee's rights and also have authority to verify any
related records of the company along with Management's explanation.

Gopal1I have worked for a construction company as a DGM at Bangalore for 3 years and resigned with one month notice period as per appointment letter.Resignation letter submitted by email to VP,Director and HR and also Hard copy.Our company has not accepted my resign letter, but I said that I want to leave the company.After 20 days of my resignation,my Vice president(VP) asked by email to submit reconciliation statement,stock register,asset details to consider relieve me.All the reports were submitted by email.Company has not appointed a person in my place to take over charge.So I have sent a mail to VP,Director and HR dept stating that today is last working day(04.09.14) with this company and leaving after serving one month notice.I met everyone on last working day in office and handed over company sim, data card etc, but my director says that he wants to verify the documents submitted to them to sign relieving form.
I have sent two emails asking relieving letter, but no response from them.
After one month of leaving from the company,my VP is asking explanation for poor workmen ship and bad quality of work executed for some items,during my period to consider relieving letter.
The VP is the head of the project and worked along with me past 4 months including my notice period.
I really fed up about his action since I got the award from the company for Project among the group of company.Hr is silent and asking me to get sign from the director.Due to this relieving letter, my balance salary, 1.5 years bonus ,32 days en-cash able leave salary settlements are getting delayed.
Please advice me to proceed further including legal details
