But he does not resides within the boundaries of the city. So he is not paid any HRA (House Rent Allowance). Is that a sufficient punishment?  What else can be done against that employee?

if he  has  been doing his work diligently comes to work on time and leaves on time dont punish him . in fact you should appreciate the fact that although he is not staying within the city yet he comes to school on time and does his work without any complaints . reward him not punish him . not everyone can afford to stay within city limits

A lot hinges on the service rules in such a case. Be that as it may, non-payment of HRA does not amount to 'punishment' by any stretch of the imagination. It may also be added that denying him HRA merely because he does not reside within the city limits is unjust. The employee can accordingly even move a court of law.
