Company not paying severance of Rs.50000, this is mentioned in contract

Hi, I was working with a leading EdTech company in India. They laid me off in June 2022. I was informed that I would receive severance pay for one month due to my unjust termination. They haven't paid me this and are making excuses till date. Will it be advisable to file a civil suit against this company? These terms are clearly laid out in the offer letter contract, so please let me know if chasing after this is worth it or not. Regards, Jayjeet Mandhata

Your offer letter needs to be reviewed but over all you may issue a legal notice to them but practically if you decide to sue your previous employer firstly there will be litigation cost involved and time that may be consumed in the case and also you will need to check that filing such case doesn't impact your future career prospects so it is up to you. Thank you.
Feel free to contact me at in case you seek any further clarifications. (Fees would be nominal).
