Hi All, I've tried to give quick info below regarding my organization switch details rather than writing as a story.

Previous Employer: X

Resignation Date: 04-December-2020

Last Date: 03-March-2021

Notice Period: 90 Days

Next/Current Employer: Y

Joining Date: 09-March-2021

So as per the above, when I dropped the resignation mail, I decided to serve the full notice period of 90 days. But then, I got a resignation acceptance mail from project level HR around 2 months later but with wrong date (25-December-2020) and hence my last working date was 24-March-2021.

This was due to some mistake on data entry or something by my manager done on system-level which he later explained and acknowledged to the project level HR that 04-December-2020 is my actual resignation date. So after a lot of chasing, somehow my project level HR accepted and informed the next level HR (Separation HR - who deals with FFS and so on) that 4th December can be my actual resignation date.

I have now joined the new employer and they have given me time for submitting my Official Relieving Letter.

But now, the Separation HR of my previous employer is asking for a 'Revised' Resignation Acceptance mail from my Project Level HR. But the project level HR is still providing the old acknowledgment mail with the same old mistaken dates. Now my Separation HR is saying that if the project level HR fails to provide the revised resignation acceptance mail, he/she would proceed with the mistaken dates itself which I hope would reflect in Official Relieving and Experience Letters (24-March-2021).

Now, this would end in 'Dual Employment' scenario when I provide my Official Relieving Letter to my next employer. How to proceed with this further?

P.S : I have informed the HR recruiter of my next organization regarding this and he/she has advised me to wait and see how it works. And I also have the mail chain where they agreed 03-March-2021 as my release date. And the thing about my project level HR is that I'm always keeping up the communications, still, the response from him/her was not quite proper/in time from the beginning itself.

So please someone suggest how to proceed if the situation doesn't end in my favor?

I do not see a problem
You have been officially relieved after completing the notice period.
You have the original mail with the trail that they accepted your last working day.
It will not really matter to the new company whether you did 90 days or 60 days as long as you were relieved after completing your notice.
It would be stupid of the previous company to give you a relieving date that is 20 days later because that will entitle you to payment of salary for the period actually.
Anyway, i dont think your new company is going to be stupid either in saying you can not join because the notice period is not over. So dont worry about it too much.

Thanks a lot Saswata. That kind of gives me a relief. Hoping that everything will be okay officially.
