Legally it is not acceptable unless it is proved that the Company has put in efforts to train the person
Normal clause in the appointment letter or an agreement that youi would not join a competitor are not acceptable

I also thought the same ... but legaly can the company sue an employee..
These days generally all companies mention this kind of clause in appointment letter.
In my last organsation a proper service agreement is signed. This document is franked by bank.
Also When an employee left name of companies which he cannot join were mentioned in his releiving letter.
Pls send your email ID will mail you a copy of that.
