Dear Mr. Dharamweb,
There is somewhere I feel that we are effected by such system called "BOND"/ "EMPLOYMENT CONTRACT". This has to be mutually decided that you do not want to pursue the contract. The most benign means to end a contract is to have all parties agree to its termination. If you are attempting to get out of a contract, the first step is truly communicating with the concerned. Explain why you want to get out of the contract, and ask the other party for permission to void it. Its a best way to participate without conflicting.

I appreciate the point suggested by Ms. Sharmila Das.Has he attempted that step ? and if yes, what was the result ?
I seek answers to the following queries :
1. did u get an appoint letter ?
2. Did you accept the Appointment Letter ?
3. Did you get Job Description ?
4.Is it a condition in the Appointment letter that you shall have to deposit all your Original Certificates with them ? there any mention that those shall be returned after completion of Bond ?
6. what are all the steps you have taken so far and what was the end result ? Need to specify
After receipt of your reply something concrete can be advised.

Keeping original certificates is done by colleges at the time of admission to prevent the student from taking admission at multiple colleges. It is strange to have been asked for or have deposited original certificates with the company. I have seen & known for decades that what one submits or is asked to submit while applying for a job is attested copies of the certificates and verification of the same is done at the time of appointment. The person verifying the copies should give back the originals promptly. Senior HR Managers from this forum can throw light on this matter for the benefits of the non-HR forum members.

Regarding exit from the job, although I am not from HR but having seen the industry for over 40 years I can say that no one wants to keep in service someone who is not interested in the job as he may not be able to put maximum efforts & hence be able to produce results. In case of senior personnel also even if there is a bond for up to three months, companies do relieve them as quickly as possible with mutual agreement.

In your case the employer certainly must have a waiting list of other potential candidates when you were selected. Hence it could be easier for them to fill the vacancy quickly if you leave. Ms. Sharmila Das has indeed given the best advice, talk to the seniors, explain your difficulty and may be a mutually agreeable solution would emerge.

Let us not grumble being shifted from corporate sales role to the retail sale profile. Both provide valuable experience. For a person interested to grow in the Sales function, all types of experiences shall help one day. To that extent, your inhibitions, especially if you are young/ a beginner in this profession, need a review.
But if you are too sensitive on this issue, Sharmila has given the right advice. As regards, retaining your original certificates, an organization like ICICI Bank would not have done it as a matter of policy. I am sure they will not like to retain a person who is not interested in the job. Just approach your HR & have a heart to heart dialog with them. Someone may be able to convince you that carrying on with this job is in your interest.

If the candidate has signed a mutual agreement with the employer, the rule says he should pay the bond amount and get his relieving as per appointment letter. Sorry gentleman you have already cut your hands by signing the bond.

Like suggested before, did your offer/ appointment letter carry your job description, if it did & if the jd mentioned then is different from what they currently asking you to do, then for sure you should talk with the HR guys and sort it out as this is wrong.
Surely, people should consider that no can be forced to do what one does not want to do. If need be, you should look for some legal help.

Dear Friend,
So far as India is concerned, bonds are illegal hence void. The can ask you to pay the cost of training ( if formal training was provided to you) only. With holding your certificates is also voilative of your constitutional right as it tentamounts to keeping you as a bonded labour.
You may like to consult some lawyer
