I would suggest you exit & get into another, better ogranization where things are (more) straight-forward.
Condor, you are correct, they might not take it lightly, but now, considering what has happened, it doesn't matter. How the scene was known to others:
Considering the depth of problem, I had a lot of meetings with HR. Others saw this happening in meeting room and whenever/whereever I went, all asked : Are you Leaving ?
This is how they came to know.

About someone coming after you for tax evasion and stuff - that wont happen for the numbers you are talking about.

Search for offers and consider leaving at the first opportunity!
Well, agreed that it was typo. Now what the typo means for me:

1) I lost more than Rs. 2.5 lakh.
2) They come to know about typo after 3 months
3) They do not accept to typo and pressurize me to do illegal and/or unethical stuff.
4) I lost job opportunities which are worth 2 times more than what I am currently getting.

They make typos, higher authorities sign it and I suffer financial loss coupled with heavy opportunity cost.

Just my 2 cents. Be careful. Best of luck
Its just that I have now lost my cool. Would take care from now on, mmmjgm!

What they are getting is close to dual digit salary packages. Even at original ( with Rs. 2.5 lakh loss ), I was much below them, much much below them. Hardly 50%. Now, I am just a mere spec in their mirror as far as salaries go. They are "Baleno driven hard", I am just "Alto 800 fully floored..."!

If you do not sign the new backdate app. letter, it is a probable problem for you.

1. New job, you show your old app. letter where package is more, when they verify your monthly salary and form 16, your monthly income would not match the appointment letter commitments. Hence, your new company will think you provided them a forged salary break-up.

2. Market is really bad, you may find it tough to get a new job after you leave your current one without an offer in your hand.

My Suggestion: Seek Legal Help, even though you lose money. Legal help will ensure you do not face issues later on in future. Each job you change, verification department will need clarification about the mess, which they will not ask from you.
