Indian Law/BSNL Service Bond Rules


Hello sir,
I joined BSNL as a JTO (April 2010)in U.P.East zone under (N.T.R.)
Sir due to Bad health problem & personnel reasons i gave the notice of Resignation (in March 2011) and left the organization after one month of notice period (i.e. April 2011).
Till now I didn't get any Resignation Acceptance letter or Final Settlement letter.
I got a letter form D.T. Bsnl in which they asked me about from which date i want my resignation, so I replied them that I gave the notice of resignation on March 2011, so after 1 month of this notice period(i.e.April 2011), you can gave me the resignation,...but I didn't get any reply  after this correspondence.
I want to know what are the legal aspects of this issue, as they did not gave any reply and weather i have to pay the Bond Amount (as per BSNL rule that, if you leave the organization before 5 years then you have to pay the bond amount)

Now I am Doing MBA and got a job in a private Org.(and will join there in June 2013) so before joining this new organization what legality I should do so that it will not create a problem in future or not considered as a cheating(as i joined another organization without getting resignation from previous one)


Employment contract can be terminated by either party by complying with the terms of the contract.It is notr clear from your query what was the termination clause as per your terms of engagement.However, since your employer has not raised any query except date of termination of your contract,it seems you have validly complied with the terms by subsequently specifying the effective date of your resignation.By keeping silent to your notice, by their conduct,your employer have accepted your resignation.Hence, they are legally bound to issue the release order and settle all your dues.
In view of the above,you may serve a legal notice for the above through a good service lawyer.
