However, deducting all at a time will be wrong and probably a violation of pay,net of wages act. So you need to recover in stages / instalments

Section 32 of the scheme provides "that where no such deduction has been made on account of an accidental mistake or a clerical error, such deduction may, with the consent in writing of the Inspector, be made from the subsequent wages".
