I have 3 months notice period and saying that I have to serve that or give the equivalent amount to Company "in lieu of notice period thereof at the discretion of management"
So Please tell me what the line means to me written in double inverted commas in my appointment letter.
From India, Mumbai

The meaning of the Notice Clause in your appointment orders is -
If you want to resign from your job,
a) You have to inform the management in writing three months before the actual date of your resignation and continue to work during the entire 3 months
b) You have to pay three months salary and get yourself relieved formally if it is accepted by the management (instead of serving notice period).
It implies that the management has the right to accept this alternative or reject it by asking you to work during the entire notice period of 3 months.

If the company gives upfront salary and take employees out? Does that also come under 'in lieu of' conditions?

Paying amount equivalent to salary of 3 months towards notice period in addition to his/ her payable amount like salary for the period worked / incentives / re-reimbursement mounts / leave pay etc., ( Full & Final settlement amount) and asking the employee is ok.
The management should also substantiate the reason behind the separation otherwise the employee can raise an objection.

If company asked me to leave the organization (just like termination but not really like that) on the same day- So do they have to pay one month salary or not? The following is incorporated in the appointment letter:
"Your temporary employment may be terminated by us or by you with notice of one calendar month or payment in lieu of notice"
If they were not reacting on mails for paying that salary, what kind of action I have to take against them?

What the above query intends to convey is that the person concerned was orally terminated by his employer and asked to leave the same day.
If the employer accepts the fact as described by the concerned person, no doubt that the employer has to pay him one month salary in lieu of notice as the termination happens to be solely at the instance of the employer for reasons best known to himself. Perhaps there was no response from the employer for the mails of the concerned person requesting payment of notice salary as per the terms of the contract of employment and the absence of any allegation from the employer either unauthorised absence or abandonment of service against the poster so far are valid indicators of the alleged oral termination of the services of the poster in breach of the notice clause of the contract of employment by the employer.
The course of redressal depends upon the capacity of the position/job held by the poster. If he was a workman as defined under the Industrial Disputes Act,1947, he can raise an industrial dispute u/s 2-A(1) of the Act. Otherwise, he has to file a Civil Suit against his ex-employer for breach of the contract of employment and claim damages.
