If you have accepted the notice period change dated Apr 2016 (in writing), then you are bound to follow that and otherwise as per your original offer letter only.

Dear Narhima,
I think your company had played a smart move and added the clause in your appraisal letter for notice period change which surely you must have acknowledged in writing. Thus, yes you are bound to serve or pay in lieu of 2 months notice period.

Thank you for your reply sir, I didn't accept in written or verbal. But they stated its changed as per apprisal letter. Now my 1 month notice will complete on 5th November 17. Am awaiting for approval. As per my offer letter term it is mandatory to have approval for buyout .

Dear Narshimha,
You are telling that as per you
1. The appointment letter issued and accepted under your signature, the notice period was 1month.
2. Afterwards there was some alteration in terms of notice period from1 month to 3 month.
3. Whether this alternation time period has got signed by you as an acceptance?
If the statement No: 3 is No, then you are stipulated for 1 month notice and refere the appointment letter No & date.

The question of notice period being only one month or the revised two month period is applicable is a question of fact and each side will have their own points in favour. But you seem to be on a better wicket, I hope there is no general clause that you will be bound by the company policy as amended from time to time. Normally all companies have such a safety clause. Pl check the same.
Now as regards buy out of the notice period, it is an option resting with the employer. In your case, company rules state the service during the notice period has to be to its satisfaction, otherwise salary amount can be deducted. So, even after serving the notice period, there is no guarantee that they will not deduct notice pay. So the better option seems to be to negotiate with the superiors and arrive at an agreed sum, pay it and say good bye.
