Left job in an insurance company without settling dues as in contract

I got a job in insurance company and they made me sign a contract of 3 years without my informing me. It was also my fault for signing the document without reading it. I left that company after 2-3 months without notice for better prospect. This was in 2012. Since then I have received letters from company to settle full and final payment. I had to pay 6000 rs to settle the claim. Last week I received a letter from the company saying I have to pay 31000 (6000+25000 legal charges) or they will start legal proceedings against me. Please advice what should be done in this matter.

FNF should be pay if u breach the contract. if they will take legal action so u might be in loss. so settle down your issue and fine better prospective

The internet is not a lawyer and neither are you.
Talk to a real lawyer about your legal issue.

I need to know the following:
1. Firstly I need to see the terms and conditions of the contract;
2. Need to see the settlement claim sent by your company to you;
3. Have they issued a legal notice to you?

Before they initiate proceedings against you, you should send them a legal notice.
