Job change with govt permission?

I am working in a contracting company since 2012. I signed a two-year contract at the time of joining and after that I have not signed any contracts. Given to understand that as per the present law, employees can transfer their jobs easily to another company. Is it possible for me to transfer my job without any issues? Do I need to obtain any kind of permission from the current employer? The chance of getting an approval from the employer is slim.
