Dear Pranathi,
I would like to brief you that both totally different letters.
Experience letter is related to when particular individual is not working the any particular organization. & Service letter is related to when person is already working in particular organization. He/she wants that for some specail purpose like House Rent, Loan etc.

The service certificate is a confirmation from the employer about the continuation of employment of the employee in that particular organization. Whenever the employee needs any loan / applying for higher education etc., the employee will submit a written application to the employer and basing on the application the employer or his representative will issue the service certificate.
The experience certificate is the letter after submission of the resignation by the employee / completes the notice period & required formalities like handing over , no-due certificate , Exit interview formalities then after relieving an experience certificate is being provided by the employer.
The service certificate is issued during the course of employment wiht the organization & experience certificate is provided after closure of the employment ie., on termination of the employee / employer relationship.

Agree Mr. Nagaprasad i.e. experience letter can be better testimonial than service certificate because exp letter is given by employer without any request.
Service certificate captures only duration and post held. Experience letter along with these details capture briefly nature of work done by the individual
Can anybody add a example of service letter. I need one urgently. Shikha
Hi Dear,
Experience Letter is given while the employee is suppose to take the discharge of all his duty from the organization and he is free from responsibilities.
Service Certificate is a document required for Loans, for a Proof etc, than the employee can requestto his HR department for providing the same.
Ther than both the letters having more or less same contents.
Hope this will helo you.

If an employee is serving his notice period and if he is asking for a service certificate, is it advisable to issue the same?
