The practice of your employer not to provide experience certificate if employee didn't complete 5 years of service is not correct. On the other hand ex-employees act of submission of fake experience certificate is also not right. He could have presented the relieving order and appointment order which was provided earlier.
If your employer doesn't want to provide experience certificate for less than 5 years service then that Policy should be informed to candidates before their date of joining with the Company. As you have joined them recently you may explain your employer the necessity of providing experience certificate when the employee serve proper notice period.
The employees has the right to take up the issue legally and pray for legal remedy by justifying how the decision of company had a great impact on their career financially.

firstname.lastname@example.orgIt is the ordinary right of a person to get experience certificate for the period he had. The employer cannot deny the same on whimsical stand and call it a 'policy'.
The employer is liable if taken up in Court of Law. If taken up in Writ Petition in the High Court, there is every possibility that the issue of the Experience Certificate could be held to be a public duty cast on the employer, though private, and, hence, there is a strict liability.
