HR may have accepted your application of early reveling, thereby you would need to pay the difference in the notice period days. That is what i understand from your query. SO please check with what the HR has said in writing, then what has been verbally communicated.

The notice period and the salary for the notice period go hand in hand and are two different entities. If both parties willingly waive notice period, no one should pay anything. However, if any party doesn't waive and insists for notice period, the other party needs to either serve for the duration of pay the equivalents.
Just thought to put my understanding. I see there is a lot of confusion which creates issues for both the parties. In fact, people, mostly enoloyer side, try to exploit the employees.
Thanks all for reply.

This is a clear case of misunderstanding arising out of usage of wrong words in the communication. HR should have not have used the word waiver in his communication. The dictionary meaning of waiver is refrain from insisting on or using (a right or claim) OR to not demand something you have a right to, OR not cause a rule to be obeyed.
In the written communication from HR, he/she should have written that condition of serving notice period before exit has been diluted however, condition of payment in lieu of incomplete notice period will remain unchanged. This kind of proper structure of sentence would have brought clarity.
That is why it is said that written communication is not that easy.

In 1st case would suggest you to check, if an offer letter has been given, if so what is the notice period.
If the notice period is given in offer letter , that is what should be given as notice period on resignation. Until, there is an bond and it has been broken and you need to compensate otherwise by so many months.
So, where there is clear waiver by the management saying that, the notice period has been waived off. only shortfall of notice has to be paid, if notice period in not fully served by the resigning employee.
