You have clubbed two issues, one is your salary and another is your absence. Let us first analyse about salary.
What has happened with you is quite unfortunate. One some amount of salary is agreed, organisation is bound to pay that amount. Reneging commitment is quite bad.
However, this is what problem with HR is. In the good old days of personnel management, the first lesson taught that "personnel manager should never become impersonal". Unfortunately, this very message also declined along with the personnel management.
The incident goes on to show the gaps in recruitment process. Why recruitment was initiated without fixing the salary for particular designation? Why there was disconnect between line managers and HR?
It is quite unfortunate that this should happen at "reputed" bank of India. HR Heads of these very organisations are more than eager to deliver lectures at seminars organised at five star hotels on Talent Management, Performance Management and so on. What happens in their own company is contrary to their sermons at these seminars.
Coming to your absence. I feel that you are not jelling well with your managers. Possibly your disgruntlement took toll of your performance. Possibly you did not dedicate your heart and soul. Your managers noticed it and were finding some reason to fire you. Your sickness came handy. Sky would not fallen down if some junior had abstained from work because of sickness. But then they could be using your sickness as pretext.
Anyway this is what life is. You have two options, one is to compromise and ask for apology and continue with the current employment. Remember first job in a branded company is very important. It will become easier for you to get into another branded company if you continue with them. When you report for your work, go along with medical certificate from doctor.
Your other option is to quit the employment. But then can you afford to remain unemployed? Getting next job may take time and it may not be in national-level company. Therefore, weigh your options carefully and take a decision
