Even thoufgh you worked as Area Mager , but you are still covered under Payment of Wages Act and Minimum Wages Act.
So you can and should approach Regional Labour Commissioner of the area where your office aws situated and file the case.
Further if the company is regular in such type of malpractices, expose those as well. It will benefit yoyr case.
