Dinesh DivekarDear member,
Well, gentleman, you had signed the employment bond at the time of joining the service. While signing the legal agreement, you could have shown a cautiousness on the troubles that you could face during the lock-in period of the legal agreement i.e. bond.
Now, after giving resignation, you say that "I was very clear on not paying bond amount right from the day I resigned, and the same was communicated to HR from the very beginning." By saying so, you do not wish to oblige the contents of the legal agreement. How it is possible?
Legally, there is no solution to your problem as such. At best you can file a lawsuit as you claim that the company did not incur any expenses on account of the training and thereby forfeits the claim of the bond amount. However, do you think that proving this in a court of law is that easy? The case will drag on for the next 25 years and by the time a verdict will be given, you will not have the energy to enjoy it even if you win the case.
Talk to your HR and find a midway. Convince them that you do not wish to leave the job but the medical condition has forced you to quit the job. You may submit an application to the MD asking clemency and release you on the compassionate grounds.

Hr didn't release the offer letter beforehand instead insisted on releasing the Offer letter on the joining date itself. All these clauses weren't discussed beforehand. They didn't even discuss all this when I resigned. Now after deducting 2 months Salary they are telling me this.They kept on stalling me which made this worse and they don't want any middle ground.
As per them , I am bound to serve notice till the amount equals to 2 lakh.
Furthermore they don't even want to do any written communication.
