Did you accept the offer letter in writing? If NO, decline to accept offer due to this clause!

If yes find another fault and decline to accept the offer!

Avoid collecting offers!

Do not sign acceptance on dotted line without consulting in advance your elders in the family, competent and experienced well wishers, lawyer /law firm.

Usually companies do not do more than making calls, sending letter or legal notice!


If you are perturbed by such letters handover the matter to your lawyer.

A fitting reply by your lawyer may put the matter on 'SHUT UP' mode forever.

Think of faults in the offer etc.


Liquidated damages are not   necessarily paid on demand. These may have to be actually spent.


So far company has not issued any letter, legal notice etc....................If it does approach your lawyer.
