Hello All, I have joined a company in Oct'2020 and my notice period is 2months. I have resigned on 22nd April 2021 and asked my company to relieve me by 15th May 2021 and told them that I'm ready to pay notice period days which I'm not going to serve. They haven't accepted my resignation and they kept my salary on hold. They told me that they will proceed legally. I haven't signed any bond and only signed only on the Appointment letter. Please see below what it was mentioned in the appointment letter and requesting you to advise?
