I have some gaps in my career owing to my banking exam prep. I recently joined a new software company in Chennai. Interviews and discussion went smoothly, but when I went to join, the offer letter said that they expect a minimum of 24 months commitment for the organization and if I resign for a reason not acceptable to management, I will not be provided any experience certificate. I objected to this and the HR said, it is policy but many people leave after 1 year of service and we don't have a problem with that. As I got no option I signed it.
I plan to leave even before a year, like after 6 months, as the projects they're working on are almost useless and not worthy. After I put in my papers, I intend to serve the complete notice period but do companies accept and give me an experience certificate if I agree to complete the notice period and pay damage claims like a salary of 2 months? or may they ask for amounts like 1 lakh?
Where this is heading? I'm concerned about the future.

Off the cuff, I would like to know whether the poster signed any bond to serve the organization for a minimum of 24 months? Mere expectation of the party mentioned in his offer cannot be a term of the contract.

Dear friend, It is too early to say anything as per your post unless until other party come out with their intentions.
