When you have got sick, availed leave including medical leave, and leave without salary. Here there is no question of repaying for leave (unpaid). Secondly, since, you are continuing leave without knowing fit to services the MNC need to regularise the leave without salary on medical grounds and take you in their role on finding fit to service. When your MNC advised (as per your statement) you are availing the leave and promised of rejoining the same post with admissible remuneration, there is no recovery from you or you have enjoyed salary and perks beyond admissible limits.
If you have failed to give clear picture of your leave and issues then what ever you have given need be analysed.

#AnonymousHi Gopinath Varahamurthi, thanks for your quick assistance. I have kept my Team lead and Manager aware of my health status, According to the company rules, only new Joinee (less than 1 year experience with the co) are applicable for pro-rata basis leave pattern. Since I have more than 4 years experience, I am not supposed to pay them now. HR is also delaying things by responding very late, they have taken more than 3 months to give me proper explanation. Do you think I can ask them to give my relieving letter without paying for the unpaid leaves taken.

Some times I wonder whether HRs of those MNCs have brains at the right places or not. Probably they select jerks who get rejected elsewhere.
When employee is unable to attend the duties because of the medical reasons or otherwise, there is a provision of take leave. When the leave balance gets exhausted, companies make provision for Leave Without Pay (LWP). In fact LWP is also a type of leave. In your case remuneration is not given for LWP, and yet HR is asking to pay you for the LWP period. Therefore, it will be double loss to the company.
I recommend you writing a letter to the Head HR. If he does not listen then write letter to the MD for the issue of relieving letter and the inordinate delay in issue of the relieving letter. If they remain over-smart then approach the Labour Officer (LO) of your area and explain your problem in chronological sequence. Carry with you the printout of the correspondence that had taken place. One single call from LO is more than sufficient to restore their levelheadedness.
