Sir, I work in a PSU bank and submitted my resignation on 4th May 2012 and got the acknowledgement by the branch head. After around 20 days later branch manager gave me a letter stating that my resignation matter is taken with the higher officials and I would be part of the bank unless their consent is received. It's now 2 months past and I have not received any acceptance letter. When I spoke to my branch head he said he would talk to the regional office but didn't revert as of now. The employment contract requires me to serve a notice of 3 months or pay in lieu of the notice period. Could you please guide me in this case as I suspect the officials at the branch or at the regional office may create unnecessary hurdles in my clean exit from the bank?
