it is a commitment done voluntarily by you, before breaking the bond you should have thought on the consequences in case of break. Now no option except to reach a compromise between company thru legal process. please contact a lawyer at your place and seek advise before you act. Now a days all companies feels that bond breach is common in employees and hence they are trying to fix leaving employees in middle of commitment.

Did the employer put you on a training session initially when you joined? If so, how long was that and in which platform were you been trained. You have mentioned that you did sign a bond with your last employer. Can you let us know the subject matter for which the bond was signed, apart from the period?

Breaking Bond is a serious issue. Why the Companies are taking Bond, because, Companies are spending a lot for their employees' training and the benefit of training must accrue to the Company. That was why, against 6 months training, they insisted for 18 months service from you.
Any way, if you can prove that you left the services because of serious personal issue back home and not for joining any other Company, and you are still unemployed for the last ......... months and do not indend to join any employment in the near future, etc.etc., you may be able to get some relief. You can also give undertaking that if at all you join any IT Company in future, that will certainly be your ex-employer for the remaining bond period, so that the legal proceedings can be avoided.
Otherwise, the Company will certainly proceed with the recovery suit, as this will be a precedent to other such bonded employees.
Good Luck !!

Thanks for your suggestion. I also want to tell you that I wrote a mail to HR regarding withdrawal of my resignation and join back my services but they did not reply.
I want you to suggest me that should I wait for any legal notice from court to come OR should I reply to the company before that?
