I was employed with a software company for past 3.8 years.
Last year, they sent me on an external training on a specialized skill, and told me that I would need to sign a bond of 3 lakhs for a duration of 2 years for the same. They made me sign a printed page with these details, but was not having any legal stamp on it.
Due to family issues, I was forced to resign the company couple of months back without serving the full bond period.
By mistake, they handed me over the Relieving letter, but told that F&F settlement and experience letter would be sent within 45 days. I did not receive either of them till date.
Now, they have sent me a notice and a follow-up via registered A.D. stating that I need to pay the recovery amount in the F&F settlement(they have included the training amount in it as a recovery) amounting nearly 2.5 lakhs within 10 days, failing which they would initiate action against me as advised.
Request dear members to kindly advise me as to how

Dear Client, yours is a specific case, where you have signed a bond only for a specific purpose and reason. It is made to understand that other terms of employment remains constant. Ideally the claim of the company is 100% correct, because you have signed a contract for specific performance., and you have broken the same. The same can be charged under provisions of IPC under breach of trust and mis representation etc., therefore you are advised to contact your management and convey them your difficulties and your point of concern and get an amicable way out.
