Dear Sir,

Your contention is correct. As per the settled law the employer entitled for the only amount spent on you during training etc. It cannot demand the entire bond amount with interest. There are judgments of High Court and Supreme Court on this issue which you can apply when they approach the Civil Court by filing a civil suit for recovery of bond amount.
