Yes you can ask employees while joining to produce all originals for verification but beyond that retention will not be good in law.
The employee is the owner of educational certificate.
The employer has no right to take this property under his control in a manner that employee cannot use his own property.
Tomorrow he may want to do higher study,then employer may deny the originals etc.
As HR person find out root cause for high attrition rates.
Is pay package lower than competing firms?
Is working environment poor that people want to run away?
So put on your thinking cap along with other senior employees to find how to retain employees.

You intend to do act an illegal. An HR personnel has no right to keep orginal docs of an employee to retain forcefully in the organization. Even the same thing is applicable to you also. You are also an employee of the organization. How u can treat like a owner of organization.
Think before Act.
