AS per the language you can. However it shall be appropriate to show it to a service lawyer.

 

However do not forget to place in writing on record under proper acknowledgment with a copy to you, notice period tendered by you, last day/date in office, and  that NO tasks are pending at your end and to whom you should handover the charge within and up to last day in office.

Yes, either you complete notice period or you pay for the same. speak to your HR and request for buy out of remaining notice period, even other wise if you pay the remaining notice period amount, there is nothing illegal in that.

Hi All,

Thanks for quick reply.

Just i want to tell you like i had word with HR to buy 1 month notice period but HR people is saying that they don't have buyout policy. So can i ask to HR by above clause (Either you are the company may terminate employment, by either party giving to the party, in writing, two (2) months’ notice of termination or monthly in lieu of notice.) which is mentioned in offer letter or can i make legal notice if required.

Regards,

Pradip Sisodiya

As advised, you may write to HR  about your resignation and the notice period to be dealt in the manner prescribed in the offer letter, always create a record on such things, preserve it so that it may come handy in case of necessary in the future.
