Dear Mr. Abhram, No body can confine you to a particular profession / service through bond, which is illegal and against constitution of india. You better talk to your new company people and tell them about the problem that you won't get reliving and you can join on resign. they can agree to it thereafter join.

Bond is void as per Indian Contract Act.  Second issue is Relieving letter.  If you had not mentioned with the prospective employer about being with present employer no problem.  If it is mentioned in interview you can manage by saying, you will submit it in due course of time.  If relieving letter is not given, filing for Mandatory Injunction from Civil court/High court is the option directing the present employer to issue a relieving letter.
