I am working with leading IT organization. At the time of joining the organization asked me to sign the bond of 2 years and Rs. @ lakhs for the training they have provided. I have signed the bond as it was the recession time. Now I want to leave the organization and they are asking me to pay the bond amout (i.e. 2,00,000). I don't think that this is a legal as signing a bond is not legal. Please suggest.
I have completed 1 year in the system. Also the bond is for the trainee and for the training. I got converted as permanent employee 7 months back. So is the bond void or not? Also the there was not enough training provided to claim 2 lakhs. They have never taken the sessions as such. They have just provided all the training material to study but I don't remember signing any document for confirmation.
