Hi, My previous company was closed 2 yrs ago and I am not in touch with anyone from there. For 2 yrs i am working in another company, now got a very good offer.
Will there be problem with background verification in TCS. I have the appointment and relief letter though and the last 3 months' payslips. And, if someone goes there and verify, the locals can confirm there was a small company there, till 2010.

Pls, reply asap. Not able to decide whether put down my papers in the current company and proceed further or not!!!
I have heard TCS and Accenture do too much verification compared to others. Looking forward to your genuine advice and replies.

No need to worry if your previous employment is genuine and the company is not a letterhead company.Even is it is a fake company you will
provided with the time to justify your employment.Form 16,PF No.,Salary slips will help you in this regard.If you have the confidence in you put you papers and go ahead...
All d best.

Hi Mathi,
Thanks for the response, but i dont understand what do u mean by a letter head company?
And, we used to get cash in envelope , never had any form 16 concept.It was a small fir of 50 ppl.
Any issues?
Thanks ,

Kindly anyhow get the contact no. (either landline / mobile ) of your Supervisor / Reporting Manager or Owner of that closed company. Also try to get their email id either personal or official (current one) so that you can mention the same in application blank of the TCS while applying or even you can update the HR people about this. They will do the verification by themselves.

Practically the verification process is being done by Third party vendors. The New company after giving you the offer and taking all your details gives your application blank or information from your application blank to these third party vendors or Background Verification agencies. These Agencies after receiving the details verify by three ways 1. email / postal communication, 2. Telecommunication, 3. Company Name & Or Address Confirmation (of the existence) through 2 Ways - 1. Visit to that place by their consultant (on remote places) or employees (in their base cities) or Visit to Post Office /Big Courier Agencies and cross check for any Communication being done at that address on that name in past or not. Also they sometime cross check from local police station/ local people (someone big name locally).

Most of the times, the verification agencies just send an email or call directly the HR dept personnel for the verification or they call to your supervisor.

So if you have worked really at that company, just do it accordingly.

Well Abhishek, I have working in India since last 5 years (I have the offer and relieving letter) and now I got selected in interview with a large company in India and now the recruitment is in process.
My History :
I worked in Singapore (3 years) and then moved to US (worked for 5 years). I don't have the relieving letter from the organisation in Singapore and moreover the company has been shutdown. While in US , i moved to 3 companies who have done my H1. I dont have the relieving letter of those companies but i have W2 and Salary Slips. While I have the letter of Employement from the 3rd company but not the relieving letter.
Do you see any issues . All the work experience is genuine.

Hi all,
I am facing a similar issue. A company for which I worked about a month and half and quit without collecting pay has xlosed. I do not have any pay slips or form 16 as it was a consultancy job for two months. I have the appointment letter issued and that was the only official document issued to me.
I have an offer from a major IT firm and their BGV team has red flagged me as the company has closed and they cannot find any POCs from the old company. What happens next will they void the offer issued? I have already resigned and am relieved too, if this goes wrong I would have no job.
What happens in these kind of circumstances I guess I am not the first one with such problems. Please help with your inputs.
Thanks in advance

They haven't taken back the offer, that's what they say when I ask them If I wud have the job. My joining date has been postponed four times already and I guess they want to tire me out and move on. But no one has officially told me anything as of yet except giving the vague reason that my BGV is pending. It was not my fault that the company closed and I was being honest about my employment and yet I have to suffer.

i have problem in BGV,i joined in company in the year 2011 it was registered in 2006 but now company name was change but within under same registration due to that cause third party team say that it was fake. is it correct?
