Dear Sir /Madam,
Salary means Dues or Received basis, which ever is earlier, calculate in under head Salary. There, you have worked last 7 month but not received any amount , here your salary is calculate on accrued basis under Income Tax.

You don't have any tax liability in respect of your unpaid salaries. Tax liabilities on salary income arise if salaries are paid not due.
For more info, you may pls call us. Are you working in Aakash, or naraina or vmc
