First and foremost, one shouldn't resign without giving notice period or settle in lieu of notice; as per your contract or letter of appointment clause. If he had a "Probation Period", he has every right to resign without notice period when on probation. Check the Contract.

Secondly, one have to understand that you are not slave to any company and nor any company force you to work let alone call you and threaten you, whatever is the reason. Company cannot put on stress by such act which will go against the company in court of law.

Thirdly, it is very important to understand what position your friend was working. If it is a sensitive work then its very important that your friend meets the company and settles the issues. Take it from, No company in India can do any harm to him nor stop him from working for any other company for his betterment and as per his wish. So, just ignore their call its just one of their cheap tactics.

When I say, please note that it is equally important that an employee must also be fair and not act as if he is without any onus of responsibility with his Employer and the Job he does. Employee is backbone of any company and such childish act disturbs the very business on which they survive and many other's livelihood.

Regarding Blacklist, companies cannot just Black list any employee because he did not serve the notice period. So relax and ask you friend to talk to them and also tell this Company not to terrorize him with such threatening calls or else you would have to "FILE An FIR" against them and also sent a legal notice Solicitor to put in stress, tension and mentally disturbing your peace with alimony.

Good luck...

First, please explain to us the location and industry.
Second please explain what blacklisting is.
A company is free to blacklist any person because it is the decision of the company whether to ever employ any specific person. There is no industry level blacklist other than the national skill registry maintained by NASSCOM.
If your friend Has left the company after 2 months in the job, that too without notice, why is he so son earned that he will not be allowed to join again ?

Probation clause is not only for companies to test your skills, but also for the employees to ascertain if he/she would do good in offered job profile and other aspects. Having said that I don't see any resignation clause during probation and hence it can be construed that it is applicable to both parties.
Just relax and ask you friend to not bother much about the issue and their threat to black list you. If that company calls again, you threat them with "Legal Notice" on ground I mentioned above. i.e. mental stress etc solicitor will add many other verbs...
I feel, It's high time employee also start using the "legal ground" for their "rights" , which many don't do just because they feel such an act will spoil their reputation and blah blah.
What's kept in a reputation where we just shake our heads to other's requirements and say nothing on wrong is done by employers at cost of employee career and growth.
