You had made a blunder by signing a 3 year contract. But as luck favours, your organisation relieved you from service and waived off the bond.
Kindly check if your reliving letter has mentioned about your health condition and reason for termination. In this case, you might be asked few question by your new employer.
This wont create any issue for you, I suggest you to proactively get a fitness certficiate from your family physician. Your next HR is only concerned whether you are fit for employment and can give your 100% at work.
All the best

And my relieving letter consists of the health statement and reason for termination.

As Abishek mentioned, you are lucky that you are relieved from the organization with a letter stating that the Bond which was signed stays in-void from the date mentioned. However practically speaking you have just 4 month of experience in your career and would suggest you not to show this experience at all, while looking out for a new opportunity. Though you get a fitness certificate, etc from a physician, this will not work out 100%.
You have mentioned "i cannot stay and work anymore because i was not able to sit and work for 8 hours", I don't think so you can provide proper justification if questioned in any interview.

kindly note that you have NOT broken the bond.
The bond has been terminated by both parties and its a decision agreed by both the parties.
Both organisation and employee are happy with the decision
All is good

So just keep working diligently & sincerely, with the only objective to learn more; your growth shall be automatic. Curtail your aspirations & do not compete with others; merely compete with your own self. This implies that you put in intelligent effort to continuously improve your own knowledge & performance.
I don't see any bar to your acceptance by another organization provided you don't emphasize during your interview on the 'health issues' & 'termination of your bond'. Just focus on the positives of your experience in the previous company & on the fact that your only ambition during the next 3 - 4 years is to learn more & contribute to the organization.

I don't think that you have done the right thing. Bonds are a common thing these days. This is because, a company cannot go on investing in training and development continuously. If a person joins a company, gets trained and then simply leaves the organisation, it is most unfair. In the first instance, you must join an organisation that suits you and your qualifications / experience. One should never join an organisation as a stop gap or in desperation. Secondly, you say that you are not able to work for 8 hours which is ridiculous. This era is an era of 27 / 7 /365 ! where do you stand here ? Then comes stress , acidity etc, which are silly reasons. If the health issue is serious , these can be very easily managed. The medical science has advanced very much in our country! At least in future, do realise the reality and try to learn something when you join a firm. Mere qualification and several courses does not make you competent. Hope you would understand the situation and come out successful in your career and in personal life. Wishing you all success.

Bonds are illegal in India. Thats why HR call it "Service Agreement" to safeguard themselves from law. Bonded labour is a crime.
I completely agree that if an organisation invest in you then they should see you serving for a good duration of time. But many HR misuse it and put unrealistic terms in the "Service Agreement".
You should only sign a service agreement, if they are giving you a niche training. The bond amount should be realistic and should cover training cost and travel cost. The bond perioid should be justifiable.
3 year bond is ridiculous unless they are training you to go on moon.
You are all good and go for a better organisation, dont sign any bond unless you really see any value in it.
Your health is more important than your job, nothing else matter.
