You have to give effect to the "date of relieving" him for the salary purpose also. For eg. if your relieving letter states "relieved on Saturday, 29th Sept." you may pay for 29 days (even here also he is entitled for a day of paid weekly holiday). Alternatively, in order to account for 30 days notice period, if the date of relieving is stated as on 31st Sept. then you may pay for 30 days, which sounds logical because Sunday being a weekly holiday there is no question of "working" for an out-going employee, in any case an employee should be given a day of 'paid weekly rest' which is suffixed and is in order.

The employee is physically relieved from service on 29th September but the notice period is for one month. So the employee continues to be notionally on the rolls of the establishment on 30th and is entitled to be paid for 30th September. There are clear Government Rules (GOI) in this regard. You can apply the same principles but not able to recollect any case law in the matter.
