Dear Sir, to answer your query first the three contracts have to be read in totality to see/examine their legal enforceability. If it is not enforceable or invalid, then you are not bound to pay any money.

Dear Concerned,
You have a full contractual right to resign after paying Rs.1 Lac. After paying the said amount by dispatching a DD of the said amount drawn in favour fo the Employer with a demand of providing you the due relieving letter, you should immediately file a suit for restraining the said company from creating any hurdles in your joining the new Firm.
