However you may post the exatct extarct from appointment letter and/or attach a copy and confirm if ther is any T&C that notice period can be extended? You may erase the names/logo to maintain the confidentiality.

You should act according to the terms you have signed for the Notice Period. If it clearly says it as one month. Then, your one month notice could be fine. And, with regard to the papers, you  should handle it like Win-Win basis.

Sit with HR and discuss, similarly with your future employer. If future employer dont insist for papers and they are ok to rely on the reply from the existing employer. Its your call.

Otherwise, Just convince by sending a registered/courier/email about your notice letter alongwith your employee agreement copy to the existing employer, also demand the salary of this current month to be credited to your account.

They cannot hold you for excesive period.

The IT employees have united and have formed unions and have affilliated with Trade Unions.

The state Govt. has advised to form Greivance Redressal committe in each establishment.


Approach them or lean on your able counsel specializing in labor/service matters.

Get everything with note on Good perfromance/conduct.

You are boundbythe erms and  conditions  of  employemnt  contract  which would be there in your employwmnt appointment letter. In case two moths notice  periosd  is there according to your employment congtract you should work for  2 months before leaving  on accountof resignation. Findout whether you can buyout the 1 month notice period by foregoing one months   salary months salary.IN case  the terms of your appointment  order say only one months noticeperiod and hey areforcing you  to work for onemore month you can find solution by filing acase in Labor court who may direcr t your employer to consider your request  of not forcing you to  work for an additionallmonth from  the date of  resignation and immediately give you releiiving orders.

The notice period is part of service conditions and governed by various enactments that apply to establishment,employer,employee.

These enactments shall prevail upon any private agreement/policy/rule drafted by employer and signed with employee e.g; offer letter/appointment letter/contract of employment/HR policy/employee handbook/servic rules etc etc...................


The notice period of 60 days may not be neccessarily applicable in your case even if inserted in appointment letter.
