I joined XYZ on 25th march\' 2013. It was a campus recruitment. Needless to say that I received my joining letter after waiting for a complete year. Now here I am working as an IT help desk agent. It seems I am working for a call center. I dont see any future. I want to resign. But I am under a 2yrs contract. I dont know which way to go please help.
Please read the exchanges at https://www.citehr.com/307226-wipro-...ce-period.html about Wipro relieving or release letter. Also please search for information about Bonds, using the RESEARCH facility at the top of this page.
You joined on 25th march 2013 and waited for a year to get appointment letter.
I believe there's some mismatch. We are still in 2013...
Assuming the goof up at 2013 which you might have meant as 2012,
About the resignation and complications regarding same can be understood better if you can share the separation policy of your company and what is stated in your bond.
Did they give you any kind of training?
Kindly update the matter so that all the information is furnished for better understanding of the problem.

I was waiting from 3rd feb 2012 for my joining letter...which I received on 1st march 2013... and I joined xyz on 25th march 2013. Yes I was given a 1 month training.. 7 days wintel and networking training.. and about a 15 days of communication training.. my offer letter says if I want to leave the company before 2 yrs I have to pay 75000 rupees. But I have about a clause which says in India no company can keep us under any bond. I have not signed any bond but its mentioned in my offer letter... please help me amd tell me more about that clause..

Dear Nancy,
Do you not think that the company should be reimbursed for the cost incurred in appointing you and the training given, if you quit the job so soon without contributing? Does the appointment letter say anything about what the company will give you if they sack you before 2 years?

One important question :
During your campus requirement, what is the job you were told you would get ?
Is this the same job or different ?
Did you not know this when you agreed to join or when you finally got your appointment letter ?
If you were offered a different job from the one they are actually giving you, you would have a good excuse to leave immediately. If you were well aware that it is a help,desk job, then I can't see why the company will be responsible.

That was really a good question.. my offer letter says that I have to pay 000. And I had no idea it will be help desk job.. I was interviewed regarding C, dbms oracle etc
I can see what happened

You waited for a year for a job, so when it came, you grabbed wothout verifying if it is job you want to do. Probably at the time of original interview a year back, you disnt understand these things. Now a few months int it, you do not want to do this work.

I do not know what you did for the last 1 year. If it is sitting at home, I think this job is better as you will have some experience to write about.

I do not as a rule, advocate breaking a bond as the company invests money and plans its course of action accordingly. However, if you think that the job offered was different from what you are given, the as per law, the contract is invalid. You see, under law, there has to be an offer and acceptance, consideration for the contract (meaning money, value or benefit to each side) and meeting of minds (both sides saying / thinking / meaning the same thing). In this case, since they offered you (I assume), a software development job, but gave a call Center job, both the first condition and the third is voided,

However, you will need to talk to a lawyer who can give you advice based on all the circumstances of the matter, not the LI tied versio. We are seeing in these posting.
