    Onwards

    Can you please ask finance people/department to do not deduct food charges from my November onwards salary?

    Is it correct?

    See my changes above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    There's no reason you shouldn't use "from" twice in one sentence if they're both necessary. If it's clear that you're talking about deductions from your salary, you could leave out "from my salary".

    Re: Onwards

    Some articles, prepositions, and other parts of speech occur over and over in the same sentence. It's a common feature of the syntax of a language like English.

    I wanted to go to the local butcher's today to buy a joint to roast for the friends who are coming to dinner tomorrow, but I had to go to work to deal with a crisis.
