Hello Friends,
I Am Raj. I Work As A Software Engineer Since Last 2 Years In A Small Company In India. Recently I Got Selected In One Of The Software Company In Bangalore. I Just Received An Email Demanding Bank Statement Of My Salary Account For Entire Work Period In The Current Company. However, I Am Paid Cash Salary By My Current Employer As It\'s A Start Up Company. Also, Salary Is Not Under Taxation (Rs.12k).But at the joining time i showed fake salary slip. I Don\'t Know What Should I Do Now. Please Enlighten Me. I Would Really Appreciate Your Guidance.

Leave this job and start looking for a new job with fair interview with no lies..Remember you have committed a crime by producing a fake salary slip.
If you want to escape then send a sincere mail to company by stating that your current company has increased your salary and designation thus you dont want to switch.Then after this company will stop following you for bank statement.After 4-5 days start looking for alternate job.
Let see what others have to say

He is saying that he has produced fake salary slip.In case of fake saying case should be very easier as he could mail his bank statement easily by apologizing for his mistake.but now the case is different

Hello Raj,
What you have done is not good. You should have thought about the consequences before submitting fake salary slip.
I find it practical what Lavika Yadav has suggested. Convey to the company you do not want to switch for personal reasons and apologize for their time and efforts.
Start a fresh with FAIR practices. Remember, such shortcuts in life will not lead to success.

Dear Friend Lavika and Vaishalee Parkhi,

None is born true to live, none is going to die in false, at one stage every one suffer for the words of the mouth happened in their life, the courage to face the situation is more and the most important.

May be he want to get a good job having the potential to develop many a thing in life and career, the tendency to lie or saying the salary drawn is one of such lie at the initial stage of getting a job, it is not a criminal offence or punishable life time imprisonment, only thing recurring of such incidence should be eliminated, whether you know it or not, some times when experience is sought from a fresher he/she tend to lie of having experience in areas never they know how to carry further..that did not mean he/she is having the intention to lie it is the way of force we put pressure/stress on the individual to lie in getting the job, subsequently they may ponder the job and make astonishing improvement in the, a HR is not a God or have magic in the way of recruiting, better say the truth on getting offer of appointment, to face is the good thing, rather than escaping for an another job, and this will continue whenever some thing crop up at a alter date simultaneously having the experience of escaping will become a way of life...

Ofcourse, decision is up to the one who suffer..

best of luck...

First, let us be clear.
Sending someone a fake salary slip is a criminal offence. It's forgery and fraud, both of which are listed in IPC. it's a different matter that most HR teams will not bother to persecute. But yes, the previous company may do so.
Anyone who fudges experience certificates or salary slips is unethical and definitely not the type of person an employer will want, irrespective of how well he may do later.
If Mr. Guru does what you say, it is likely, he will be thrown out of the job as soon as HR finds out that he forged the documents. Then he will not have a job. The old one is gone, the new one is gone. And he will also have to explain to the next employer why he left the first job. In a background check, the truth may quickly come out.
The person will be in a position worse than what he is facing today.
Ofcourse, as you said, it's a decision ultimately he has to take....

i dont get it
first you said that the company pay you cash
then you said that they want to get your bank statement
if the company pay you cash, how your bnk statement will affect on it?
not every cash money of yours you will bank in right?

Dear Guru372,
For sure whatever you have done is wrong. You can inform the HR, that you have lied. Mostly you won't get this job. No employer or HR will be interested in hiring people who has the habit or falsifying experience or salary details.
Try to get a job via fair ways. Informing it to HR in prior is better because if by any hooks and crooks you show any false payslip also. In future you can be terminated in case a background check is performed. And that might impact in your career seriously.
Look for a job in decent way.

Hello Guru372,

Like Lavika suggested, start afresh WITHOUT making the same mistake again....and when you learn from this situation/incident, it becomes a part of your life's/career's experiences. It wouldn't remain a mistake anymore.

@ Gopinath Varahamurthi--

There's a Quote that sums-up the gist of what you mentioned:

"Nature has no rights or wrongs, only consequences".

And it's been a practice of all the members in this Forum to dissuade anyone....especially those just entering or in their early careers.....from FIRST desist making mistakes whose consequences COULD be costly/tough-to-handle in the long-term & if he/she has already gone that path [for whatever reason(s)], it's only imperative that members give the necessary strength to FACE the consequences too--rather than suggest ways to bypass [or worse, cover-up] such situations/mistakes.

Whether the thread initiator takes the advice or not is HIS/HER problem. If he/she cares to learn from other's mistakes, he/she benefits.....if not, well--no prizes for guessing the answer.
