Joined a company and asked to sign a bond for 2 lakh Rs for 2 years period then only offer letter will be given (this information was not given during interview). Signed the bond and joined the company but Within 15 days after joining found many problem and thus resigned without taking any salary. Now got legal notice from their legal adviser to pay the bond amount 2 Lakh rupees with 15 days of receiving the notice.

Reason for resignations:

1. Corporate grade was not as per experience in the industry so no career growth there

2. Work was not same what was informed over the phone

3. During training (another location)accommodation was not proper, fallen sick.

4. Requested for separate accommodation but not provided

5. company treated like a bonded labour so decided not to work with such company thus sent resignation e-mail with reasons and stop going to office.

6. not even completed training, not taken any salary, was in probation period only, now got legal notice from Legal firm saying to pay 2 lakh Rs amount to their client.

7. I am not doing any job, already i am in problem Please advice.

Is there any job description specified in bond/appointment letter? In agreement was it specified as relocation option for training?
What is the duration for training period? What training was provided? Where was the training provided?
What ever the reason bonding is illegal. No need to worry

Dear Nisha,
There are so many discussions regarding bond system. Please see the latest diccussion were I was also a part of it.

Dear Jeeva sir,
Is bond system legal in case of the employment in PSU's ..??
why i am asking this question is many PSU's maharatna navratna companies are asking the newely joined management trainees in their company to serve a bond for a period of 5 yrs....
is this legally correct ..???
awaiting for ur reply ....

Today regarding a case between the Nurses association and hospital management in Supreme court ( case relating to nurses strike in Kerala) the Indian Government has filed a affidavit that the the direction has been issued to all the state government that the bond system should not be enforced in Hospitals. If in hospitals bond system cannot be made then why not in other establishments. I will update regarding the same as soon as I receive the further information.

I do agree as many of PSU’s are asking for bond system. But I think as those are not valid
Hello sir, checked the bond paper, it says training will be provided for three months and total cost will come 2 lakh rs but the fact is out of 15 days in office, most of the time i was siting idle. I was not given any technical training which will enhance my knowledge. within few days of training i realised this is not which i was told. Can i reply through e-mail rather than sending reply through a lawyer? or shall i ignore the legal notice? Legal notice is not received by my family. it is received by my neighbour. Thanks in advance
