Dear Jyoti,
First confirm for which ASSESSMENT YEAR they're deducting TDS from Salary? If it's for previous year (2011-2012), as per my knowledge, it's not the liability of present Employer to deduct TDS for previous Employer. They're only liable for the salary which they're paying and I don't know how much your friend got as salary for the month of February'11 and March'11. But his employer can only deduct TDS for these two months (if applicable). So, tell your friend to consult with any TAX CONSULTANT relating this thing and for refund the deducted amt. your friend can claim refund (if extra paid) from IT Deptt. In case of refund, Form 16 is required from both employer ( If previous employer deducted the TDS from him.).
Secondly, if ASSESSMENT YEAR is 2012-2013 (current year), then need to prepare financial planning for getting Tax Benefit. for that also need to talk with TAX CONSULTANT.
