My previous job have a bond condition , according to which I cannot left the company before completion of 3 years , otherwise me or my guarenter have to pay 1.5 lac.

Any bond to restrict/ bind an employee is illegal. A company through bond can recover the amount spent on you for providing you any particular training, if any and nothing more.
However, since the company has already sent you legal notice, it is advisable to duly reply to that notice yourself or through your lawyer. Don't sit idle.

There seems to be an error either in the DOJ or DOR, that you may like to correct in your post. From the content of your post, it's assumed that there was no unilateral arrangement between you and the PSU, linked to the offer made to you. By signing it at the time of joining you became a party to a legally binding contract, so it would be tenable in the court of law. Please consult an attorney, with all your documents. Best wishes!

Dear Sir/Ma’am, I have a query. How to mention about service bond clause in appointment letter(like a special clause)? Thanks Aditi Upadhyay

There is no danger to your current job, but, you will have to discharge the bond by making payment as Government function is a Sovereign function its different then normal functioning of private company.
This opinion is based on the facts provided by you above.

Law does not treat separately whether it is a private ,psu or government sector.There is no precedent where court has awarded or impose fine or punishment for breaking service bond agreement unless it is resulted for pecuniary loss or affected the goodwill of the company.But cost incurred if any imparting on training of the employee is recoverable and can be entertained by the law.
You are advice to reply to the notice through a attorney to avoid any future complication.
