When any employee forcefully takes leave, without his in-charge permission. And their leave is balance. In this condition management take any action on his. Suggest me please.

Any leave other than a leave on medical grounds should be availed of with prior approval or sanction by the concerned authority only. If any employee goes on leave on his own without prior sanction, he can be called back to work and if he fails to respond his absence can be treated as unauthorized one.
If the employer is reasonably liberal in the matter of leave sanction, such a situation would not normally arise.

Forceful taking leave or just going on leave without prior sanction is an act of indiscipline.
Employer has to make clear leave policies and make all employees aware.HODs should be adviced to be liberal with leave, keeping both company and employee interest in mind.
But indiscipline should be dealt with fairly and firmly at the root itself.
Absence without prior permission and with no reasonable reason needs to be recorded and first offence -counselled firmly.Second attempt would be more serious and calls for show cause and further action as per circumstances.

Dear Colleague,
This is not called forcefully taking leave. It is unauthorized absence from duty and invites strict action after satisfying that the absence was for compelling circumstances beyond his control. In that situation also, he should communicate forthwith on phone, mail or any other means of communication.
Depending on the facts, he can be, counselled, cautioned or warned.

Before jumping into conclusion and taking unilateral decision, it is always better to look at the track record of the employee. Check the facts of this particular issue as to what made the employee to go on 'unauthorized leave' and so on. There is no force applied or implied in this issue, so not the right term to be used.
As suggested by the learned member, your policies should speak of the way leaves are to be treated and what is unauthorized, absconding, loss of pay types and how it will be dealt.
Talk to the concerned and discuss with the management before issuing any letter to the employee. If required these can be done after coming to a clear conclusion.
Thanks and Regards

Leave is a facility provided to employees either as per policy or law but is not a matter of right in the sense that it entitles an employee to remain absent from duty as and when he desires,dispensing with prior permission of competent authority. However, in emergencies such as sudden illness to self or a member of the family, an employee might be forced to remain without prior permission but even in such cases the employee shall intimate the authorities about the circumstances.Otherwise leave normally requires prior sanction.
