Though your present employer's stand is both illegal and unethical and you can fight it successfully, it is very important that what you are going to do after your resignation.
If you are switching jobs, whether you have got any offer on hand with a specified joining date? In such a situation, the prospective employer would certainly insist on formal relieving orders from the present employer failing which yours will become a dual employment case. Therefore, if you decide to leave the present job on the expiry of the notice period on your own, you have to inform the fact to your present employer under copy to the prospective employer.
