Madhu.T.KYou are a branch manager and obviously, you should possess managerial powers and as such you will not get the protection of Industrial Disputes Act. Moreover, your organisation being a public sector unit, should be having your own service rules which would clearly mention about the Pl during notice period. Still, the objection by the authorities that you cannot avail your eligible leave on very genuine ground should be viewed very seriously.

nanu1953It appears from the original post that you have some improper relationship with bank management. Being Branch Manager of one nationalized bank you know it better than anyone that just applying leave in HRMS is not sufficient. Until and unless the leave sanctioning authority approved the applied leave, it has no value.
IF you have a genuine health reason, please forward necessary documentation to bank authority - hospitalization related papers if any, Doctor's prescription and advice mentioning that you need to take rest etc. Otherwise it will appear that you are intentionally absenting without sanctioning of leave.
Sanctioning PL is absolutely the jurisdiction of the higher authority specially when you have submitted your paper. But for genuine medical emergency , I hope that the sanctioning authority will think it differently and probably sanction your leave.
