You should once again speak to your HR people. Pls. carry with you copies of your medical certificates citing illness/disease.
Also send them a registered letter attaching a copy of your resignation letter, medical certificates, etc and request them to expedite the matter.
A bond can be broken on medical gounds and if you are ready to pay the bond amount, it should'nt really be a problem.
Akanksha has said it right.
The bond can be broken with suitable medical records supportings.
Pls appraise the HR dept the need for your breaking away on medical grounds due to the environment present there.
As suggested already, you may send a letter by regd a/d.
Also, not having the relieving letter now, should not stop from you from applying. If worst comes to worst, the propsective employer can also be appraised of the situation why you are not able to produce the relieving letter by producing copies of the medical records which should indicate the illness due to the conditions prevalent in the ex-company. Some understanding soul in the prospective Company will understand and help you out.
Also, some of the Organisations, request for a copy of the resignation letter in case of inability to produce the relieving letter, based on whcih you can be a new employee in the new Organisation.
Good luck and all the best to be employed soon.
What Rejeev said is 100% right .... there is value for Bonds here ..... the main reasons for companies to make bonds is:
what if an employee acquires training here and moves to some other organization and the cost barred by the company as the result of attrition.
Thats the reason companies make bonds with the employees.
But you dont have to worry about the bonds here.
Also, I assume that not all the companies expect a relieving order while you apply for a job or attend an interview.
With all your efforts finding no positive results, pls change your approach from request to a mild demand.
May be you can send a soft notice from one of the legal advocates known to you requesting and not really demanding for the relieving letter.
Sinceyou have indicated that you respect the Company, pls ensure that the notice from the advocate is not the typical lawyer's notce but soft in nature, which I am sure the advocates do draft.
May be some bright guy who will really safe guard the interest of the Company will atleast reply the notice and send the relieving letter or atleast will indicate the reason for not giving you the relieving letter. If and when you have the reply to the notice, may be you can address the issue and comply with the company's requirement if any and get the relieving letter.
All the best and Good Luck.
