On getting the call from SBI, I submitted my resignation in BOI on 03/11/2017. As per their policy, a leaving employee should serve a notice period of 3 months.

I sent BOI letter stating that I will not be serving them anymore on 26/12/2017 and 27/12/2017. After this, I joined SBI on 29/12/2017. Later I received a reply from BOI on 01/01/2018 which said that they had accepted my resignation by letter it. 03/11/17 and I will be released on 02/02/18 after 3 months notice. I was not in a position to join BOI back as I had started working in SBI.
