You have mentioned that you had been employed overseas, but please mention the country name since law differs from country to country. Also let the forum know whether the company is Indian Company and you were working for them overseas so that seniors can advise you accordingly.

Dear Sir,
thanks for your reply,
i had been employed in Nigeria Lagos . and that is an Indian company having branch in mumbai kandivili dealing Pharma drugs and formulations medicine.
i had not signed any contract with him since he had verbally offered me 1500$ as my monthly package . but reaching there i came to know my basic would be 50k just also the working condition and mental harassment .
now the company is asking me to pay my visa charges and ticket charges although the it was an Business Visa which company had removed so that i can travel for their urgency.
They had made a lawyer to send me a notice to pay back the expense.
kindly give me appropriate advice.

Hire a Lawyer since the company has send you a legal notice you are supposed to reply the notice send to you. Also let the forum know how much money the company is demanding for their visa expenses if it is meager amount then to hire a lawyer then it is better to pay off.

Dear Vikas,
First, when you have not received any written document from the company for your job then why you move - it can be more problematic then what you had but God help you - thanks to God. Never ever trust on such thing which is baseless.
As per my understanding, you dont have to worry instead to reply your response on notice as they used a law. You are having two strong point first - no written document of your job like offer letter on contract letter and second thing you was on business visa and in any country, business visa is only for to roam around not to work in country.
In your response, you can mention you these point.

Dear Vikas
I agree with Mr. Kasim Ansari and request you to follow his advice of not to respond the legal notice when there is no written document. They should also have any documentary evidence to prove their views. if any suit is filed against you only then should file reply while taking the visa as the company sent to abroad for procuring business while roaming and not doing job. You did the job and reported back to the company. Now you are no more interested to procure business for the company while roaming abroad.
