I joined one of the small IT Firm in Mumbai on 11th jan 2016.
At the time of joining they asked me to submit the O.G. Educational documents to the company for
security and they also said they will give me acknowledgement letter for the same. but till date i don;t received that.
Now, after working there more than 4.5 months i am only one developer in this office.
Even company don't have any Company Name Board at outside of the office.
I am too much worried about my future because all this thing.
Now, I am thinking to leave this company after getting new job.
But will comapany return my all educational document?

Company has no right to retain your educational certificates.
Ask for them back immediately making any excuse.
Leaving certificates with them can lead to difficulty in exit.
The company can loose them or spoil it by negligence and they can deny since no receipt is given.
Are they paying salary regularly?
What about business orders?
Look around discreetly for tother jobs if you have doubts.

How can you expect members of this forum to,give an answer to your question.
We do not know the Comoany or its owners, their attitude, ethics or honesty.
So how can we say whether or not they will give the money back....
If you are asking whether you made a mistake in giving them your certificates, the answer would be yes. You have nade a mistake

see right now you need to concentrate on how to leave your current organization with out any difficulties forget about company, forget about companies loyalty to you and all just you need to think about your career and leave with proper process, They will definitely return your documents. and there are so many jobs in market upload your cvs on sites or consult any consultancy and just be confident.

Normally in private companies, people will be joining as trainer without experience,they will be learning the work and leaving after 3 months or more. In such cases, the company is paying salary without any contribution to the company from them. It became regular practice now a days.
Because of this reason,they will ask the candidate to work at least for one/two years minimum, It will be agreed by the candidate. Also they will ask to deposit their Educational documents as a measure of moral binding.
In such case, if anybody wants to leave early, request the management and leave by taking the certificates.

As I know, most of International Standards or government laws do not allow any behavior of keeping the employees personal documentation (e.g.: passport, certificate...), all behaviors like that can be considered as a misconduct.
In this particular case, you totally made a mistake by your childish actions :D. I think you should remember and find out any evidence of your personal documentation that was given or anyone can bear witness to you, just wait a right time to ask them if you do not want to let it leave you forever.
In the case you can not find out any evidence, the hint is given in the row below:
You can talk with the person who is keeping your personal documentation in person with a recorder tool, in the conversation try to talk more about your flashback, try to make them reveal the evidence and get everything back from their mouth for your next step.
