Greetings of the day,
Query : Employee is not reporting to office from past 2.5 months due to her critical illness and HR department is aware from this. We are crediting salary contionously to her salary account. As her Sick & Earned leave is exhausted now so the question arises in my mind. Should we contionue to credit her salary ?
Kindly provide me your valuable suggestion regarding this.

If no leave balance you don't have to pay wages. If she comes under ESI, please advice her to take leave through ESI, they will pay the salary. Glad to know that you have considered this employee's condition and paid what is due.
Keeping in view of illness of an employee, you are crediting her salary since last 2.5 months is really a goodwill gesture and must be appreciated.
However, you have not described much whether she is covered under ESIC or not and kind of illness whether it is general sickness or employment injury to advise you further.
In the meantime, if the leaves are exhausted, you may also be helpless to continue paying salary and legally also you are not bound in case of general sickness. Now it is your own discretion / conscious to continue on humanitarian grounds keeping the gravity of her needs in your mind or discontinue.
