The bank issued explaination letter in feb 2017 and revised explaination letters in April 2017 and I had.given replies within the stipulated period till today no charge sheet has been issued by the bank though more than 13 months has been lapsed since suspension.

Generally in cases where there is a criminal case registered followed by arrest / custody, suspension may be continued for longer durations. It is not uncommon to see suspension in such cases continuing till the trial in the criminal case is over. It also depends on the facts of the case and the role of the employee in such criminal case.
Normally, there are provisions for review of the suspension at periodic intervals such as 3 months or 6 months. You may check what are the rules in your bank relating to review of the suspension. Also check whether your suspension has been reviewed periodically as per the rules.
Depending upon facts of your case, and in consultation with your local lawyer, you may challenge the continuation of your suspension in the appropriate court / tribunal.
