IT company demanding fine of 2 lakhs to give reliving letter.
I absconded from an IT company in June 2013 during my bond period.
The bond amount was two lakhs and bond was due to end in 3 months.
I now require the relieving letter and but the company is demanding 2 lakhs rupees as fine because I breached the contract, to give me the relieving letter.
Also they say that it would be mentioned in the relieving letter that mine was not a smooth exit and I had behavioural issues.
What legal options do I have ? Kindly suggest.
