No, you cannot claim compensation because usually, after resignation the company holds your last month salary. The last month salary is released after the company finishes the full and final settlement. So, may be as per your terms of appointment the company may pay you salary after completion of 45 days. 

Don't worry, they will release your salary.

If after 45 days, they fail to give your salary, then you can send a legal notice through a lawyer and despite legal notice they fail to pay your salary. Then you can file suit for recovery thereby demanding your salary, interest 24% and compensation for mental harassment and cost of litigation.
