Generally experience certificate is enough. Some companies may insist for relieving.
You may ask your employer to include the word "relieved from your duties w.e.f. ..."
I think this would be sufficient to get another job.

You slapped a colleague in office!! So the termination was justified as well and from the tone of your message it feels you hold no grudges with the organization for taking this step, which is good! Actually, Relieving letter is least of your problems. An experience letter will suffice in most cases. Some organizations insist of seeing both your resignation and relieving letters but they are rare in numbers, so not a problem.
The bigger problem that you need to worry about will be the reference checks and that could become a far bigger damper than you think, especially in organizations that have third party reference checks done. That is something you need to look into more carefully.
Emotions need to be controlled at all times, Sunny. They tend to create chaos and disaster.

Thank you so much for your reply.
I spoke to the HR of my previous company they said that they will not disclose the reason of the termination and will only specify how long I was working there and my performance.
So I am expecting a smooth background check.
Thank you again for you time and valuable advise.

sunny relievin letter is not a problem to get a job. as Navneet said reference check is the only hurdle in case your behavior thing. please open to employer in case if your thing comes to HR dept and also point out what sort of mistake committed by both of you (employees)
and also give those reference name who close with you

Experience certificate, anyone can request his HR, even he is in employment and continuing the same. Employee may want Exp cert for many reasons, and HRs issues the same.
If Sunny produces only Exp Cert to his new employer, and grabs the job, what is the document on record that he has left his ex-employer ? A Termination letter !!

There is a huge difference between Experience letter being given to an employee who is still with the organization and one who has left. The difference is the end date. For an existing employee it will clearly state that the person is still in employment of the organization while the other one will definitely have a start date and an end date - a "From - To" format.
The other document that has a similar effect is the letter / Statement that the organization ( most of them) give when handing over your full and final payment. It signifies that all dues are fully considered and paid in full and that only happens when you have left the organization.
Just my opinion and i could be wrong...:-)

Speak to your employer and get a pact done about providing a positive feedback for you during employment verification. few employers might turn nasty, they might promise you to give a positive feedback and later may not keep their word.
Also request for a experience letter where your date of joining and last day of working is mentioned.
Good Luck :)

i really appreciate for your openness.and all seniors for their valuable information.
with reference to the above discussions i would strongly go with rutuja,
just ask your previous employer about Experience letter mentioning DOJ and DOL.
those details gets you a new job.....

Regarding ref checks, no organization of minimum repute would try to screw a person's career by releasing info as such in your case. I know a person who was involved in a financial fraud in a fortune 500 company and now is working with another big company. Ref checks will always be positive if you get an experience letter, unless its a company with very few employees and the MD has a personal grudge on you. They wont issue any such letter to prove employment if it weren't to help your career.
Bid a professional goodbye to every person who you think could be of help to you in future.
Just be sure to get the date of separation printed on your experience letter!!

Coming to your joining in next job, most of the IT concerns are making reference check and you may caught into that!.
Third is The employment bond will get broken, once you should get releivel order from them not like expereinece certificate.
This is my views please.
All the very best fro your future endeavours.

Slapping is though criminal offence, it was justified. relieve letter is to ensure that your no more in service with a company so that you will not involve in dual employment. Otherwise experience certificate is the main aspect. However request your employer to allow you submitting resignation letter & to relieve immediately. If not, leave it & chase opening with Exp certificate. Try to manage with new company HR either by disclosing the fact or by treating him back door
