My original notice period was two months, but I told my new employer it was only one month. Based on that, I got shortlisted, attended the interview, and received an offer from them.
I am now being relieved from the services of the previous company, but they mentioned my resignation date in the relieving letter - (almost) two months ago, rather than one. On the positive side, my starting date at the new company is the same as the effective termination date at my old job.
Will my new company's HR department care that I gave them the wrong duration of the notice period? What can I tell them if they question me about it?
