• Employer causing unnecessary delay in full and final settlement

My name is Irshad. I am from Mumbai. I was working with a firm in Bangalore. I worked there from 19th January 2016 to 27th May 2016. While leaving the company I was told I will get the Full and Final Settlement amount within 60 working days i.e approximately 3 months from the last working day. Its almost 4 months now and I have not yet received the amount.

I have been sending emails and giving phone calls to the HR department since August 2nd, 2016. There is no proper response from them. They are unnecessarily delaying my FnF. 

I was jobless for 3 months and have recently joined a new company in Bangalore itself. I wish to file a complaint against the company and demand compensation. I need an expert advice and guidance in this matter.

3) in alternative file recovery case against company to recover your dues

You should issue a legal notice through your lawyer to the employer to seek the relieving letter with full and final settlement of your dues, and if it does not pay back then a suit for recovery in the civil court will be the only remedy.

You said you had been sending emails and phone calls, please be aware that such correspondences may not get warm reception hence you issue a legal demand notice demanding the dues to you and follow it by a recovery suit agaisnt the company, you will get good response and your object shall be achieved.

Issue a legal notice to company to pay your outstanding dues with the help of a local lawyer. What is the real cause for leaving the job? You quit the job or they relive you? 
If the company not paid to you then file a petition before labour court
