The legal definition of resignation could be, "The formal notice given to an employer of voluntary termination of employment by an employee". There are no laws governing employee resignations, but proper etiquette should be followed in order to avoid parting on bad terms.
When an employee submits his / her resignation and quits the job, the employee-employer relation ends itself. So, on the question for "Removing the Name" of resigned employee, I will suggest that his / her name can be removed from the Rolls of the company and Full-and-Final Account of the employee should be settled.
But, on question of Holding Salary, then I would like to inform you that if an employee has properly resigned from job and relived from the services of company, then his / her salary cannot be hold by the employer in any circumstance. It could create problem for employer, if the ex-employee complaints against it.
Where as, if there is any so called "Notice Period" factor, then in that case the solution can be differ from case-to-case.
So, if there is any such thing, then plz. let us know.

If an employee submitted his resignation from the job and accordingly his resignation accepted / or he stop coming on job, at the same time the employee - employer relation comes to an end. After that, his / her name should be removed from Company Roll. That doesn't matters that his / her FnF is settled or not.
But, If the employee is not coming to settle his / her FnF, then in this case just prepare the FnF Statement. If the amount is payable, then just send the FnF Statement along with the cheque to the address of the employee through Registered AD. And, if the amount is recoverable, then send the FnF Statement along covering letter. In that letter, advise the ex-employee to clear the dues and for that send a DD in the so and so name.
Hope, this will clear your doubt. Cheers.
