Hi !!! Background check Info required : ASAP plz plz plz Jobs & Careers

Hi Friends,
I am a software engineer working in a BIG Indian IT-firm and willing to join another BIG IT-firm very soon. I have received quite a good offer from the latter company.
I have done a small mistake which might cost me dear in future as the new company has a very stringent background-checking policy.
My academic and professional credentials like marksheets, certificates, offer-letter, relieving letter and service-certificate - all are in order but there is one thing which is not mentioned in my service-certificate - that is, the technology I was working in. It's actually Java. The problem is in my first company I was on bench for almost 6 months and in my CV I had shown Java experience during this period also because I didn't want to put 'on-bench' in my CV. Therefore, although I have been employed for 2 years and 6 months in this company, my actual Java experience is only 2 years.
Can the first company act in a vindictive manner during the verification process by disclosing the fact that I lied in the CV?
Do the investigating agencies conduct their investigations till that level?
If they talk to my first company's HR people, will they tell them that I actually had 2 years' and NOT 2 years 6 months' Java experience?
Thanks in advance.

Dude, this depends on the company....My company TCS does the background check of all the previous companies that you worked for. Also, when someone joins my project, there is again a background check in which verification is done only for last 2 companies.....
I just need to understand in more detail, will they do background check for past 1-2 companies or all the companies.
Only your duration of employment will be verified.Also whether you are under any service bond.
Your company HR people will not disclose salary details,client name or which technology you worked. These are internal issues not to be disclosed to outsider specially rival tech firm.
They must ...
