Did the Company impart any training on being selected in the company at the end of which you need to join as per Offer letter in consent of which you signed the contract or gave your consent to the offer letter?

But still, they might have incurred a certain expenditure in the recruitment process and once an offer is accepted, they might have planned a project in anticipation of your reporting as per acceptance. Anyone can issue notice, and it is proper to reply to such notice through a local competent advocate.

If you've been in your job for less than a month, you don't have to give notice unless the contract or terms and conditions require you to. If you've been in your job for more than 1 month, you must give at least 1 week's notice. It's best to resign in writing, so there's no argument about when you did it.
Pradipta Nath (Advocate) 25 October 2021
See the point is that the company can serve legal notice based on a clause that has been dishonoured. But as per the clause that you have shared, in case the recipient has ample scope to contest it on merit. If any notice is served, better to reply it by an Advocate. However please, in case the employee wants to resign, the termination clause should be referred and accordingly activity to be initiated.
P. Venu (Advocate) 27 October 2021
There is nothing wrong in serving in serving a legal notice. You have the option to reply the same bringing your version on record.
