It appears these days the 'paperless working culture' is spreading to newer areas, no appointment letter, no confirmation, no pay slip etc is rather becoming the norm, as is seen from sob-queries frequenting this forum.
As regards your query the position is clarified as follows:
Since the appointment order stated that probation is only for six months and in the absence of any adverse order extending the probation, it is to be presumed that the employee is confirmed and accordingly the notice period as applicable to the confirmed employee would be applicable.
Yes, the employee is eligible for bonus for two accounting years covering the entire period of service. Once the employee is covered under the PB Act, eligibility for bonus payment is there irrespective of being a probationer or confirmed employee. Eligibility for gratuity is only after 5 years of continuous service and this 1.5 year would count in the eligibility period.
When the employee has no liability to be discharged, it is not proper to withhold relieving of the employee. But pl see whether the employer could make alternate arrangements in the meanwhile. Probably you may have to put pressure and follow up for being relieved.
