In my opinion this is an unnecessary issue created out of ignorance or excess of enthusiasm exercised by some one in your prospective employer's organization. When it is abundantly clear that you are no more associated with Vodafone and you are in the employment of some other organization for the past one year period, where is the question of your source of recruitment being one from a client Company of Infosys? Such a question would be pertinent to some extent if your present employer also happens to be a client of Infosys or that of Vodafone. Even otherwise, complete discharge from the contractual liabilities under any employment bond with the current employer by a serving employee aspiring for a fresh employment elsewhere is a general precondition for a formal relief from the present job. I do not think that such vital information pertaining to the recruiter's employment policy would have escaped the attention of the recruiter in the initial stage of recruitment itself. When you've submitted your declaration to the effect of having no subsisting contractual liability with Vodafone, how you would be responsible for the delay,if any in the clearance of positive cross reference due to no response from them?
If I were in your position I will simply write to them politely that as any further delay in confirmation of my appointment would lead to practical difficulties in complying with the notice conditions of my present job I would not be in a position to comply with the joining conditions and therefore request them to issue the appointment orders within a reasonable time failing which I may have to reconsider my joining.
It is the policy of the organization. No outsider can question it.

they even told me that no further documents or anything required from your side, we are trying on internal level but the process will take longer time and shocking thing i heard from them is, He said as of now there is not positive sign on this right now.
so why would they shortlist candidates on first place and select them, after selection, we goes in mindset that, yes now there will be no problem now, we hope for good and then they strike you with these things.
As of now i haven't resigned from my current organization and i will not resign unless i get any concrete update on selection in written and offer letter.
But Companies such big as this, judge you on things which you are not even associated now is more disappointing.
I hope the end result will be positive and they will release my offer letter soon. i don't have any option rather than waiting.
