I used to work as a Purchase Manager in a reputed five star hotel chain in India. I joined the company on 1st March 2011, I was supposed to be in probation period for 6 months till 31st August 2011 however my probation period was extended for further 3 months till 30th November 2011 citing non performance as a reason by the management. On 30th November 2011 I was asked by my boss to submit the resignation as they are not willing to employ me anymore. The problem is that my Salary was not given for the month of October 2011. When I asked my boss regarding that he told me that my salary is in hold without giving any reason. When I resigned on 30th Nov, effectively my salary was due to two months Oct & Nov 2011. At that time company told me that I\'ll get the salary of those two months with my Full & Final Settlement.
Now the real thing begin as I received a letter from company stating that I owed them Rs. 20000/- as they have debited Rs. 86000/- on my account giving reason that I've made some purchase during my tenure that were more than the market value and due to that company had to bear the loss of that amount. However all those purchases were made as per the company policy and according to the purchase orders which were duly signed by Finance Manager and General Manager.
Now I do not want to lose my two months salary. So please tell me what should be my next course of action?"

Its better to take it up to Legal Action,The Possibility of you winning the Case is Higher since all the Purchase Orders would have be signed by your Superiors also.It cant be a Mistake of Individual Management is also Responsible.
