Leaving aside the legal validity of bond what is not clear is when you sign a bond knowingly that you will be under obligation to offer uninterrupted service for your employer for 2 years, why you have resigned after one year service. When you are not sure /keen of continuing for 2 years you should not have the signed the bond.
You have not briefed as to whether you left the job abruptly or submitted resignation and waiting for proper relief.
As a employer, Organization will proceed with disciplinary proceedings including Advocate notices, filing of civil suit etc and they will be ready to spend money so as to ensure you should not become precedent for other employees to escape who had signed bond. Whereas for your it will be time consuming and it will pinch your pocket.
So my suggestion is talk to your HR and request for some alternatives like serving 3 months notice instead of paying compensation for violation of the terms and conditions of the service bond. Just knock the door of HR you will get some solution. Never in your life sign any agreement or bond related to your employment if you are not sure of honoring it.
