I have placed my resignation from a PSU Company. As per the offer letter I'll be governed by the Service Regulations of the Organisation. As per the Service Regulations, I am supposed to serve a Notice Period of 3 months. But my reporting manager made a noting on my Resignation Letter, stating that, as the company had invested Time & Money for Training me, I should be made to serve a Notice Period of 6 months. To my surprise the HR has also agreed to the manager noting and is now processing my Resignation with 6 month's Notice.
I have not signed any bond prior to attending any Training, and the Training were common training attended by all my co-workers.
Its already been 1 month from the Resignation and there has been no update on the status.
Now if I try Buy-Out my remaining notice period, for what period do I have to pay the compensation?
Whom should I approach to end this Harassment?
A reporting manager has no authority to modify the terms of the contract of employment formulated by the PSU viz., the employer and agreed by the employee at the time of appointment. I don't know how the HR accepts the recommendation of the concerned manager and processes the paper accordingly unmindful of the basic tenets of a contract of employment. Better, you bring the issue to the notice of the CEO. Prior to that ensure any amendment was made in this regard to the service regulations subsequently.
If you are a unionized employee, seek the assistance of the trade union also.

You are bind by the terms mentioned in your appointment letter and the rules of the company.
Your reporting manager has no authority to alter or modify the terms/rules of the company as per his wish. What your HR understands, it is not a matter but law is the matter. You can resign and serve the notice as per your terms of appointment. You can take the shelter of courts, if any hardship there exist on you exit.
