I have signed an Employment Agreement for a sum of Rs. 50,000/- towards training cost, if I left the company before the six months, and that too with serving a notice perid of 30 days. But, the current position is, that I have resigned after a service of 3 months, by serving a notice period of 7 days due to unavoidable circumstances concerning my health issues. And the same was approved and accepted by the HR department of the company. Now, the company has sent me a notice for the recovery of Rs.26000/-, calculated on prorata basis, for leaving the service before 6 months.
1- Is it valid as per the law?
2- Am I liable to pay the amount, so claimed?
3- Could I have been prosecuted on the terms of such an adverse agreement?

it depends upon the facts whether you were imparted any training or not.what expenses management
has done on training etc.
ofcourse it is not valid in law but your piece of mind can be distrubed by filing a case if they do so.
