Kindly ask the employee to submit the request in his own handwriting as an written application, the reasons mentioned therein with his signature and employee code and name. File this application in the personal file. There is no need for you to provide him any return letter.
Also, if there is no policy of your company to pay by cash, please refrain from making exceptions. This will only create for you to work. ATM's are as good as salary in cash. Also you will have to create cash vouchers for his salary and take his signatures and file them properly for verification, whereas with Bank transfer the same is very easy and also the data is with the outside party(duplicate data). so refrain from making exceptions...

But If you have no such system and only HR is responsible for distributing salary, still you dont need to pay him cash but can transfer the salary amount to his personal bank accounts (if having no employee individual bank account) by getting signed an authorization letter for supplied 'bank details for transferring the salary to employee on his bank personal account directly' by him in this regard.
You must adhere to the Organizational policies and rules have (if) created by the authority and the said employee can withdraw the amount anytime.
No any personal reason/excuse in this regard is applicable. Be professional.

As per the Payment of Wages Act, the salary should be paid in cash. If the net salary is exceeds Rs.20,000/- then you cannot pay salary in cash but to pay by means of cheque as per provisions of Income Tax Act, 1961, Since the employee is requesting to pay in cash subject to above terms you can pay it. Normally, now days most of the organizations salary disbursement are done through banks by crediting to employees respective bank account. This is the normal practice of disbursement of salary. However, whatever may be mode of payment, but you should have acquittance of employees on your wage register or wage slip as required under payment of wages act.

#AnonymousPlease remember one rule.
Exception made in standard policy / policies of the companies of the company, become precedent in the longer term (for other employees to quote against the one who has made the exception) and create more problems for HR personnel. therefore payment of salary should be through bank only.
