I was provided with a overseas assignment by my company which clearly mentioned my career plan after assignment overseas. Based on that career plan I chose a totally chose a new domain and came to work overseas by signing the agreement. But later I found out that the career plan I am given is uncertain and the project will never start under current condition. I am complaining to my managment from the beginning but no sincere action was taken. My assignmemt was for two years and now after completion of two years overseas i have to work for next 3 years as per agreement. But now they are asking me to return after 2 years and take up a entirely new work because I am under the signed agreemnt. I dont want to do that job and want to leave. I was deceived under a false assignment plan and I signed the agreement. Please suggest how tonproceed.

Agreement/ bond of this nature is illegal in India. The Supreme Court has clearly mentioned that no employer can hold its employees from joining another company for his betterment.
The company can at maximum recover the amount incurred by them for imparting any special training to you through suit. Nothing more than that.
However, take your bond/ agreement to a lawyer for better advice.
