I will definitely try to convince my new employer but a little help from Cognizant would have really assisted so much. The main issue is nobody is reachable and hence I have no means of representation or requesting in any other way. I am sure there are many great professionals in cognizant HR but somehow the interface to reach them is totally blocked.
Sometimes I wonder all great talks are a waste if such basic help cannot be extended.

I am really shocked with the response of Cognizant on your behalf.Its totally unprofessional from their side.
Please contact me on parveen(dot)tata(@)gmail(dot)com. I will try by best to help you on this matter.

Did you check you email? We usually receive a soft copy of the offer in mail, for acceptance of offer.
The hard copy is shared on the date of joining.
Not sure, if this will help. We often forget to check our resources, whilst under pressure.

They should be able to provide you with a duplicate letter. May be you should try to personally visit them and explain the situation (if you are in the same city)? My other suggestion would be to make a soft copy of all important documents and store them in a web drive that could be accessed by you from anywhere.

This case is really surprising. HR of an organization should always be available to all employees. We empathise your situation and hope for the best.
I suggest that maybe you can try and locate any of your cognizant collegues who are still working there. They will be able to get in touch with the concerned HR and discuss about your case. Maybe this would work out a way for you.
All the best.

I doubt as well, that they will issue another letter. But if you have a copy made of it with you, You can bring it to the office & they may stamp it for you as verified duplicate.
Also, you said you worked there & left normally. Do you have any contacts with somebody with influence in the company? Any Sr. Management person? He can help to expedite the process. Also, sometimes he can help to get the process in place, if it is not a standard practice. Please try to reach your previous manager. It would be faster than approaching the HR directly.
If you go on complaining, you will face no response.... In your persual mails, keep the requesting tone, & Just mention how you have been trying to reach them. Don't mention about how they are not responding, or what you expect them to do...
Best of luck... :-)

Truly glad that all went well & Wish you All the Best in your new job.
To answer your apprehension ['........i am just thinking what would have happened had they not been fine.....'], I think it was answered FOUR centuries ago by Shakespeare: All's Well that ends well :-)
All the Best again.

may i know if the late submission of pre-joining form by around 4 months (due to some technical fault) and the company's system approved the same form i.e. the form has submitted successfully and ask to await for joining .
my quire y is whether it will affect on joining process or not.
