I was working with Standard Chartered Bank. My bank account was with the same bank. when I left the company i did not serve the 3 months notice period. When the pf was calculated and deposited in my SCB account, they utilised the whole amount towards adjusting my entire full and final settlement. Is it the norm?

Dear Aparajita,
No one can use your PF money you served the notice period or not that is immaterial. what are all the deduction made during your tenure they would have deposited to PF authorities. when you resign from the company you can apply Form 19 & 10c to withdraw you PF amount with the interest. or you can transfer your amount to existing company

This is not the norm .... They should have got permission from you before using your PF money for settlement of your not serving notice period.You can go to the authorities or labor court to take penal actions against them.But your not serving the notice period was not a good thing anyway.
