Can salary be transferred in an employee's relative's bank account?
A labour working in an infrastructure & construction company doesn't have an account and has already been deployed at an overseas site, so in that case he is demanding that salary be paid in his wife's bank account. So will it bring any implications? Especially any contradiction with Accounting??? Please share answer with proper guidelines

What is the value of salary ? Money credited to wife account will be treated as her income (depends on the quantum of salary).
It is not advisable. Please check whether it is a joint account with her spouse (employee). If it is a inevitable situation, take a request letter from the employee requesting the employer to credit the salary into his wife account and then process. However better let this be a temporary arrangement.

No. Salary of an employee can not be disbursed to the bank account of his relative. whether the person is employee's father or mother or brother or sister or even his spouse. However, if he/she(employee) has a joint account with any bank, with his/her spouse, the salary could be credited after receiving a written request from an employee -duly signed by him.
