Indian Law/Resignation rules


Dear sir
I have worked as a Maths teacher for 8 years in a CBSE school nearby, and 4 years ago i was appointed as  Principal of the school. About 2 months ago, due to some bad situation & consequences i gave my resignation to the chairman of the school. No response whatsoever has been received by me officially as yet & i don't know if they have accepted it, although my salary for the period of 25 days has been sent to my home by the school.
Now my question is i want to rejoin the school. I have once called & personally met the Chairman regarding this but the chairman is not responding well. He is neither clearly refusing me nor accepting my request. I want to know whether there is a law to cancel my resignation & can i rejoin my service by law.

Dear Sandeep Singh
The question as to the procedure of either acceptance or withdrawal of resignation can only be in adherence to the bylaws of your institution. Having said that, normally the practice followed is that it is the discretion of the management weather to accept or reject your resignation. It is better for you to come to a negotiated settlement with the management.
