Not an answer but when do you get your sign on deposited to your bank account?

Typically the first or second paycheck after starting from my experience

They will send you an email after you submit notice for what you owe. I think you get 30 or so days after your last day to pay or they send it to collections

Hm I never repaid mine, but maybe it wasn't big enough for them to chase after it

I never repaid and never heard anything

If someone can verify this? I have seen so many posts here and on Quora too, that TCS release the salary structure breakup after the interview rounds, but do not send the offer letter, even after acceptance of salary. The HR person won't deny you on the face, but keep on delaying that offer letter release would take time. Is this true? Do a reputed company like TCS make such fake promises or raise false hopes in candidates?

What would you do if you were me? I quit my job a few months ago and started thinking about creating my own start-up - I've had this itch for years but was too busy selling every second of my life to advertising agencies. Long story short, I got an offer from an agency. The salary is great but I am not excited at all about it and this would again bring to a halt what I really want to do in life. *A bit more info in the comments.
