Madhu.T.KYour issue seems to be like this:
You were working in a college and you left that profession and joined a company as software Engineer. The old employer has not issued an appointment order to you. But you have your relieving order with you. Also you have pay slips reflecting your salary drawn. You can also get form 16 in respect of income tax deducted at source. Now we have EPF details available online which will show the date of exit from the previous company. Forget about this one if that college was aided by government and was having provident fund of the government.
Are these documents sufficient for the new employer? What is the significance of an appointment order? Anybody can hold an appointment order but that does not mean that he was employed in that organisation. After getting an appointment order, you can decline to join the company or after joining you can leave the company. On leaving the company, the company will not take the appointment order back from you. It will be with you only. That does not mean that you have worked in that company. Here what is important is the service certificate/ relieving order which certifies that you have worked during a particular period in the role specified therein.
Now show your new employer the relieving order, Form 16, last month pay slip etc and complete the process. Genuine HR persons will accept these documents.

saswatabanerjeeI do not think either the AICTE nor the university is the forum for resolving disputes between employer and employee.
However, there may be a dispute resolution forum at the University that you can approach and try your luck.
In alternate, you can approach the labour commissioner of the area and ask for his help. You have not given details of your employment so I man to sure how helpful he will be.
Otherwise, as Madhu-ji explained, there are other ways to prove that you have worked there.
