I do not know why the this company is asking original certificate. If the candidate wants, he can keep a xerox copy with him and hand over the original letter. What most they will do with this certificate we think? Even if they dont give back the ORIGINAL relievinving letter or Experience letter, let them not.
When he goes to next company, probably if that company wants the copy of ORIGINAL certificate, he can always say that he had submitted the same to his previous employer, and can submit the ones (copy) in his hand.
As long as the candidate is genuine, straight forward I do not think this will harm him.

I do not see any reason for asking relieving letters in original to be surrendered with new employer. Let them give one justification
