The context of my leaving was simple. I had intimated to my manager that I needed to leave urgently for personal reasons but he refused to accept my reasons and resignation. When I left later on without serving a notice period they sent me a show cause notice claiming abscondment (which I didn't because I had fully offered to buy out my own notice period and had intimated that I intend to leave). Later on they claimed as a part of full and final settlement I needed to pay 2+ lakh rupees to get my experience letter issued from the company. Since I didn't have that much money on me after leaving, I decided not to pursue the matter any further. An year later, the company merged with another IT giant and consequentially no one I know is working there anymore. I went on to do a masters and joined another company afterwards without the experience letter posing any issue. Now, I have been offered another job which I am quite keen on pursuing but they are insisting on an experience letter. Any ideas on how to get my letter?
