The whole problem is that we never get the complete details of your csse to examine.viz
1.What your appointment letter says.Is there any clause of security
or notice period ?
2.In what position you are working there and how long ?
3.Have you taken any receipt for having deposited the original certificate ?
In normal case they should not keep original certificate as security.

Whatever the conditions, it is illegal for the employer to retain the Orginal certificates; it is the personal property of the employee.
Offer letter not says any clause for the security. Its only saying that have to work one month notice period. And the company has provide a security bond the bond containis that the company holds the certificate. It will give back only the time of after the notice period.
Dear Raghavan,
The company has done a perfect paper work. If you are seriously in need of the certificate. I see the only option you to resign and give one month notice.If they harassing you, it is better to look for another job.

No company can be a law unto itself. It cannot indulge in private legislation by incorporating conditions in agreements with employees. The conditions need to be lawful. All conditions and terms which impair the private rights of the citizens are void unless sanctioned by a Law enacted by the Legislature.
In the instant case, the employee can initiate a civil or criminal action; he can also seek the intervention of the Human Rights Commission.
Dear Pvenu,
I agree with your that the conditions imposed or likely to be imposed should be lawful and reasonable. Chapter V-C of I D Act, 1947 has prohibited unfair labour practices on the part employer and employee for which law provides penalties. As such, he can make complaint or raise dispute before the concerned labour officials.
No doubt, as suggested by you, in the instant case, the employee can initiate a civil or criminal action; but please tell me how many people has money, time or guts to fight with the employer while in-service or after resignation.

In my considered opinion, this forum is meant to offer suggestions that are lawful and meaningful, to those who are facing challenging situations. And certainly not to construct hopelessness when effective institutional remedies exist.
Hi..I'm working as a Assistant Professor in a private Engineering college.. In my college my Management gave three months time to publish a paper in journal due work schedule we can't publish a paper in journal..so the management said that they going to deduct the Two thousands rupees from my salary..I want to know whether the management have rights to deduct the salary from employee..plz help me..
Management can not deduct salary in this fashion.Failure to submit paper in journal can be held against your professional performance but you cannot be fined in this fashion.
Take up matter politely with management.
