Sub.: Request for payment of delayed salary.

Dear Ms. Rhea,

I am Nayar Tara, a member of the operation department at ABC Industries. Typically, my salary is disbursed on the 30th day of each month. I express my sincere gratitude for consistently receiving my salary punctually throughout the preceding months of this year.

I am writing to notify you that as of October 14th, 2024, I have yet to receive my salary of ₹70,000 for the month of September 2024. Due to financial constraints, I kindly request the release of my salary. Furthermore, my bank has confirmed that the funds have not been credited to my account.

It would be greatly appreciated if you could instruct the concerned staff member in resolving this issue to ensure that the payment is received by the end of this week.

Thank you.

Yours sincerely,
Nayar Tara
Jr. Operation Assistant
