ronin4uMr Yadav, The first original contract was in the year 2015, then in 2016 they again renewed my contract which was supposed to end by 31st of march. But then again in feb 2017 we all got a email with a message that our contracts have been extended till June 2017. I don't have the access to the email since it was blocked on 6th of march,the same day when I got the non- renewal of contract notice. But its a known fact that all staff had got an extension to that contract upto June 2017 in the month of feb through the email.
Now doesn't that mean I am still under the contract till June 2017, and either me or them have to serve a two moths notice. I was able to get in today 1st of April , the bio metrics took my fingerprint reading, and then I sent an sms to my directors and hr that i am willing to serve a two moths notice, but the security informed me at about 4:30 pm that from next time if I have to enter the office premise, I have to get a visitors pass from the management building.
I sent an sms to one of the directors to explain why I needed a security pass, since my contract was extended till June 2017. In reply he is insisting that 31st of march is the ending date and did not mention anything regarding extension of the contract email which we all received in Feb 22. ..and this is coming from an autonomous company which works for the government with government employees in the management.
If I am a consultant then what does is it actually mean . Does it limit me from certain things.we had to go to office and work from there.
I attached a page of termination terms as reuquested by some members . Do let me know if you need more oages. Sorry I could not this earlier, as i did not have time.
Consultants are not entitled to generally available facilities and benefits/entitlements to which company employees are entitled. From details and facts, it is understood that the services of consultants could also be terminated without any prior notice or pay in lieu of notice period(Clause14.2).Secondly, electronic messages mails, SMS are not legally acceptable neither the same have been taken under the ambit of "communication" as yet under service rules like Standing Orders which can become cause of action.
However, please write mails and take print of all documents and send by Speed post along with copies of the same in the name of HR-Head, Directors including MDand Chairman also that your entry after 1st April 2017 has been disallowed by Security persons orally. You claim two months salary in case you are not required as per terms .......... mentioned in contract letter dtd...............and in case company is not allowing you to serve during 2 months notice period, which you are prepared to honor as lot of assignments are still to be completed by you.
This is to strategically and immediately mount pressure to your company forcing them release notice pay, keep it on for 3-4 times repeating one and after that for one month.You have to sit strongly on line as week point of that Directors mail sent in Feb.17 which writes that appraisal and extension of contract period that can be give relief as favourably useful for you.

Ashutosh ThakreDear Ronin,
Only an Email as to extension of the contract will not be acceptable as you may have not signed it. Also, if the contract ends on 31st March, then the condition of 2 months of notice period will not arise, as they are ending the contract and not renewing it. Also, if you have the copy of the email, that has been specifically written to you, then it can be taken as a proof, otherwise in general a mail, is of no use.
Also, we are not able to read the clause, which says what happens, if they terminate the contract on the mentioned date.
So, i think, you will not be eligible for the 2 months notice period.

So bottom line, should I simply let it go and carry on??. Because deep down I
strongly feel that I have been wronged. There were many a time's in my career
that I let of similar situations like this i.e " Chalta hai,or Jaane be dho" attitude.
If I let it go, the fact that the Admin departments ego lead to this will always
haunt me. I would consider all your advices.
Ashutosh ThakreDear Ronnin,
If you have the proofs, then only you can fight it out, without a proof, the company if not going to even give a ear to your complaints. So, it is better to move ahead. You can politely ask the company, but citing the contract, there is not much that you can achieve.
