    "will it be accepted?" How could we possibly know that? Why are you trying to resign immediately anyway? There is a lot that you're not telling us. Commented Sep 26, 2021 at 19:49

    You should have probably gave at least a weeks notice of resignation, this is the nominal period over here in the UK. I see two options, they ask you to work a reasonable notice period or they accept your resignation and terminate you with immediate effect. They would possible hold any money owing or just not pay you for the notice period. It would really help us if we knew where you are?

  • In most of the countries the company has no way to force you to go to work. But if you fail to honour the contract, the company might be able to take legal action against you forcing you to pay indemnities.

    @SJuan76 Or in India, not give you the infamous relieving letter in which case you won't (legally) be able to get another job. Commented Sep 26, 2021 at 21:23

If your contract has a two month notice period, then you have to give them two months notice.

They might agree to let you go immediately without serving the period, and it's often in the company's interest to do so (because they're probably not going to get much useful work out of you for if you're there against your will, and it gives you more chance to steal confidential information or try and take clients with you or stuff like that). But that's entirely at their discretion.

If you just say "I quit, and I'm not coming back" then can't force you to come into work. But depending on where you are, they might be able to withhold your pay for your last month, or may be able to sue you for breach of contract (although it's probably not worth their time to do so). Don't expect a good reference though.
