What has happened with you is quite unfortunate. This is a classic case of unprofessional behaviour from the so called branded companies. Nevertheless, you cannot lay the blame at their door steps too. You too were confused and have mishandled the matter. Please read my replies initelics to your text.
I have been selected for CMC Ltd, after giving 3 stage of interview, they have sent me the offer letter (22 may 2014), after our mutual agreed situation they offered me 5.2 LPA, after getting the offer letter in written, i had submitted my resignation to my current company,
But suddenly after 3-4 days they called me and said that i have to join them on 4.2 LPA or they will drop the offer. I wanted to know on what basis they are saying this, because on the basis of that offer letter i\'ve submitted my resignation,
This is the unprofessional behaviour of the highest kind. HR has penchant of talking about leadership and teaching others lot about emotional intelligence and so on. This incident shows how they blow hot and cold back home.
On that situation i was very much depressed and forced to withdraw my resignation from current company with a one year of service bond and apology mail.
Anyway, it was your decision to reverse your previous decision to resign. By making you to sign the bond, HR foreclosed possibility of you doing to them what CMC did to you.
After that i\'ve mailed to their MD & CEO Mr. Ramanan, and they called me for a discussion on last Friday 30th May, 2014 and tried to convince me that it was not their problem, i was stick to my opinion, and came from that place.
Nothing wrong if you had written letter to the CEO. However, why did you go for discussion. Letter was to keep inform CEO what happens in his company. HR of that company would never have informed of letting you down on their commitment.
on sunday (01/06/2014) they called me and said that i can join on the previous offer, on 2nd june.
What can be expected from these people who do not have firm feet on the ground?
But i am now bounded by their unprofessional and unethical attitude, still i would not join them after facing this kind of things, because it may be a trap. And by their inhuman behaviour i am now service bonded, i cant change my job for one year, and obviously i\'ve suffer very much mental harassment. I want justice for this situation. I had followed the hierarchy, but didnt get any effective solution. I just want some simple questions answer from CMC Ltd, please guide me the way.
This is your sheer frustration. Once you withdrew your resignation then you had turned your back to CMC. What the point in going for the discussion? Getting offer letter and subsequently getting second offer with reduced salary was irony of your fate. You could have swallowed this bullet and allowed your life to go on. Compromise is name of the game. In fact, nothing could have stopped you from uploading images on social media of two offer letters. You could have taught them a nice lesson. Today, social media is far more powerful tool. It is not only for exposing the sham activities of the politicians but of the corporates as well. What has happened with you is quite horrible and the incident should have been brought to light. Anyway, forget the incident and concentrate on your current job
Final comments: - We the HR are quite obsessed with jargon like workforce diversity, human potential management and so on. Nevertheless, many of us do not show common sense in routine activities. These very people go to five star hotels and in some seminar deliver lectures on leadership to others!

I strongly recommend you forgetting the incident as a bad dream. Life is not for settling scores with this or that person. I would say please invest your time and energy in building your career. Instead of getting entangled in litigation, invest the same time in learning something new or spend the same time in pursuit of your hobby.
Life is made of good and bad experiences. Do not expect everything to be god always. Do not expect everybody to be good always. My advice may sound little avuncular however, gentleman let me tell you that life is very short, time is very less. Therefore, do not waste even a single minute in unproductive activities.
You had taken up matter with the CEO and he had responded also. Not that he had trashed your letter. If you had not withdrawn your letter of resignation, probably you would have got new job with higher salary. After getting second offer letter but before withdrawing letter of resignation, you should have approached CEO. By chance if had not responded then only you should have withdrawn letter of resignation. Partially you were also at fault for not being mentally stable.
Leave everything. Ride is always bumpy in life's journey. Move on with this jolt after the bump.
All the best!

Actually I had a notice period of 7 Days, and on day 6th they have sent the changed offer matter, and on day 7th (which could be last working day in current company) they called me for discussion, so i dont think their was any way without taking my resignation back, Because i knew on that day itself they wer going to send another guy the offer letter in place of me, I have only forwarded his resume to my current company. I have my family depending on me, lets say i would not take back my resignation, i could be jobless, was there any guarantee that CMC would roll-back their point of view to the earlier stage(Lets forget about CMC, would i get any job offer so quickly? and also would i not have to face any question regarding i am having no job? would it make impact good on employers? ). (for your information i have shown my resignation mail and service bond-resignation withdrawn mail to CMC people on that meeting day, so they are just trying to show that they are clear, if they were really clear then they could do it before), And lets say another point if i would join after this incident, would they behave properly? They could even terminate my job/ decrease salary (by saying that i am unfit), what would be the parameter to judge that time, that i am totally fit. I've all call-records/ discussion recorded (on the meeting day).

I appreciate Dinesh's comments. Just let it go and take it as a lesson learnt in life. You got perplexed in the situation, and are facing a brunt now being in a bond for 1 year. Nevertheless use this one year for upgrading your skill set and reviving your ties with your current employer , as somewhere you have become an disloyal employee in their eyes as well.
Yes, of course you are doing good by bringing such issue on the social media and making others aware of how to handle such situations in there life. Donot think about wasting your time and energy on litigation.
