One of your junior employees has given resignation. His notice period is for three months. But then has he asked for the reduction of the notice period? If not, then why you wish to push him out early? While framing the terms of employment you could have been thoughtful of the future scenario.
Now suppose the employee has for reduction in notice period. Then tell the employee to submit the application asking for waiver of the part of the notice period. On receipt of the application, get it approved by the approving authority and then send the reply to the employee tell him that he can do his duties till _____ (date), about handing over charge of his duties, and disbursement of this payment.
The heading of your post include a word "dispute", but the text of the post does not convey any dispute per se. Can you clarify on this?

Though there is a stipulation in the contract of employment/appointment orders about certain notice period before resignation, it is the management's discretion to insist on it or waive it whether or not there is a request from the employee. Therefore, you can accept the resignation forthwith and relieve the employee if no date is mentioned by him and if a date is mentioned, exactly on the effective date mentioned by him.
