What you written about retention of original certificates,delayed salary payments violate law.
If you complain you will loose your job,but are you having any alternative.
Go to the Labour officer with a written complaint and annexe documents in support, while looking for another job.

If what all you described are true, all the acts of the management are unfair labor practice. I wonder how all the employees simply watch these things as moot spectators. Even illiterate inter-state migrant workmen employed on hard physical labor come to the road and agitate against such atrocities and draw the attention of the authorities. Being highly educated and bestowed with the talent of effective communication skills, you and your colleagues should not wait the Law to come to your rescue; you have to knock at its doors. Submit a joint-memorandum to the State Labor Department. Enlist the support of the State's prominent Trade Unions.

First of all you are advised not to sign any such document of the management to retain the job. It is understood that all the employee either not united or without unity, result of which your management rules on you and get scope for unfair labor practice. You write a mail or letter to HR Head to return all your testimonials in his custody, if not returned within stipulated time then lodge an FIR in the name HR Head.
Further, if management does not pay wages by 7th or 10th (as the case maybe) knock the door of labor office of your area lodge the complaint against the management under payment of wages act.
Our senior members have already given their suggestion & views in the matter. There is well said " If you are not mine how I can be your's" go tit for tat use print, electornics media well for use as your instrument to gain your goal.

Thank you for all your valuable suggestions. Recently, I have had discussion about my performance,they abused me verbally and my md used couple of bad words. So, I defended myself. But they tell that they don't relieve me as well as they warned me that they will file a false case against me like I stole their software.
