Once the formality is over, the originals are handed over to the aspirants. This is the healthy norm being followed by reputed organisation and their ethics and cultures are of superb quality helping them to win the heart of their employees and peers.
Instead of retaining the originals, they insist on a bond of a prescribed value and in the event that an employee relinquishes job between the bond - period, they would have to pay the bond - money as applicable to the candidate under that circumstances.
