You could have approached the labour commissioner of the area and filed a complaint before him/her, addressing your concerns. This same action can be later on moved to the Labour court against your employer. Under Section 7 of the Payment of Wages Act, 1936 – Deductions which may be made from wages
You can also approach the civil court under the Indian Contract Act, 1872 for the breach of contract based on the offer letter (agreement) you signed with your employer.
