But anyway, you shoudn't surrender and сontact the company as many times as you need to resolve the issue.
I wish you luck!

I would like to specify the following:
a) Your notice period was for 60 days, whereas you had completed only the 19 days.
b) Your last working day was 16th Aug 2017. Thereafter, you had stopped reporting for your duties. In legal parlance this is called as "Abandonment of Duties". It was unilateral decision.
c) Notwithstanding your abandonment of your duties, it appears that your company waited till 14th Sep 2017 and on day from 15th Sep 2017, your name was struck from the company rolls. Employee may absent or abscond, however, companies keep that employee on the roll. This is what has happened with you from 17th Aug 2017 to 14th Sep 2017.
d) That is why you have been issued with the relieving letter from 26th July 2012 to 14th Sep 2017.
e) Your company was generous for not taking action for abandonment of duties. Any other company would have sent the legal notice for the recovery of the notice period pay from you.
f) Your company was not just generous but tolerant too as you have been issued relieving letter without any negative remarks. Any other company might have ordered domestic enquiry on employee's abstention. For failing to attend the domestic enquiry, or for failing to provide credible explanation on abstention employee might have been terminated.
g) Though you have not mentioned anything about gratuity, probably your company did not pay you the gratuity and adjusted the notice period pay against the gratuity. Since the company was not in financial loss, they did not enter into any legal hassle. Of course, this is just a surmise.
h) Abandonment of employment was your unwise decision. For five years the company had provided you the bread and butter, but when better opportunity came in your path, you had no qualms in deserting the company. Nothing wrong per se to avail of better opportunity, nevertheless, this cannot be done at the expense of the contractual obligation.
i) Part of the first paragraph reads, "put a final mail on records that 16th Aug will be my last working day with company and won't be able to continue my services afterwards". The wording of your mail smacks of your overbearing pride. The statement insinuates your feeling that company was depending on you and you had complete freedom to take unilateral decisions.
Final Comments: - Whether the tolerance shown as stated in point (f) above, was by design or default, it has caused damage to you by way of dual employment from 21st Aug 2017 to 14th Sep 2017. While you may approach for the correction of the date in the relieving letter, how far your case will be entertained that remains to be seen as in the HRIS, it must have been shown that you were on the rolls till 14th Sep 2017. Secondly, it's a question of disloyalty also. Company may say, you can't have cake and eat it too.

In my mails to HR I had clearly mentioned that my basic salary can be desucted in lieu of not serving notice period and which is a clause in offer letter as well.
I have been paid till 14th Sep, but I was not part of organisation.

It was only the offer letter clause on which I took the decision, please guide to overcome this situation. I have all the documentary proofs with me.
I have given them in writing that I won't be able to continue my services from particular date and even asked them to deduct the salary as per clause mentioned in offer letter, still they have paid me for the period when I was not a part of organisation.
Is legal the only way out to overcome this situation?

To my surprise she told me that if it could be our fault we would have changed it but as I have left without serving notice period I have to deal with it.
One side they are saying that I left and other side they are unnecessarily paying me for that period.
