Dear All,
I am new member of this group. ThDear All,
I am new member of this group. Though I am following this site from so many times.Hats of to all of you guys who solve/advice problems which is not possible otherwise.

I have little problem. I am working in India's top MNC IT comapny from 3 years. Now I decided to move ahead and look forward for opportunity. I selected in another good product based IT company. After salary discussion, they gave me the offer letter and took original 10th mark sheet. They give me one receipt of this result and said on date of joining I will get this result back. I resigned from current employer. But the problem is started afterwards. I get call from another company. After interview I was selected and they offered me very good salary and positions. I want to join second company.So my questions are:
1)Is it mandatory to join first company? Means can company force me to join company on basis of Signed Offer letter(There is no such clause mentioned in offer letter)?
2)Can I join second company and ask for my 10th certificate back without joining to the first company?

Please help guys!

The contract is complete once you accept the job offer(By signing the offer letter as accepting the job)
The company will not like the fact that you are leaving after acceptance and possibility of creating trouble in returning of your original certificate.
In legal terms you have broken terms of contract.You need to tackle this issue very diplomatically and see whether you can leave the present company for which you have accepted job offer.
In my opinion you should continue with this company and forget the other company which is giving better offer.
Many such chances will come,no point getting into hassle with employers,just because you got a better offer.

Technically, when you received and accepted the offer, there is a contract. They can take you to court for breach of contract. Having said that, they cannot retain your 10th class original mark sheet.

Beyond the contract, outside of it, you can try anything through proper, legal means. Or outside the purview of the contract, you can request them to help you out. If you have this kind of inconsistent, fickle-mindedness thought process you will have difficulties in future ! There will never be an end. It is possible, after joining the new company, another company may offer another 2000 Rs. per and some jazzy position. What will you do ? You should give priority to your long term goals rather than short term monetary gains or titles. Never give in to instant growth or success in terms of monetary or title satisfaction. Sty for at least 2/3 years in each company to learn, instead of chasing power, position and paisa !

Best advice possible in the world of quick fixes and instant gratification.
One must thank learned member Shri Sundaram for rendering good advice.

".....took original 10th mark sheet." First of all you need your original mark sheet after that u can think about ethical/ legal/moral ground.
In this case My suggestion is ; if other offer is better for long term growth , try to get your mark sheets and switch to other job.
Always think about career rater then job

Hello Dbk4002,
You already got the suggestions for other members....whether you take them or not is up to you I guess.
However, let's look @ the very same issue from another perspective.
What IF the Company where you gave your 10th Certificate RECALLS/CANCELS their Offer saying they got another guy with the same technical caliber BUT for a lower CTC than what they committed to you? That should be OK too to you I guess.
If this is OK, then what you propose doing should be OK too.....and if this is NOT OK, then what you intend doing is surely not OK too.
Like Nathrao mentioned, Offers come dime-a-dozen for those with good technical caliber. But what doesn't come naturally is ETHICS.
