Change in notice period from 1 month to 3 months.
My name is Anurag and I work with an advertising agency. My company recently revised the notice period policy from a month to 3 months for all employees. At the time of joining, the appointment letter mentioned that it's going to be a month. They informed us of the change via an email and no documents have been signed for the same. People including me have missed out on a lot of good job opportunities citing the reason that nobody wants to wait for three months. Moreover, the email also said that if the company wants us to leave, they are only bound to give us a month's notice. I've been reading on the internet if this change is legally tangible and have gotten mixed opinions. I am looking for an answer and a way to leave the company giving a month's notice.

Thank you so much for your help. From what I understood, my notice period isn't subject to change without prior notice as there's no such mention in my appointment letter.
My confirmation letter, which was issued post the email has the following line- "You will be required to abide by the terms of the appointment letter issued to you, and the company's other regulations that are in force and also those that may be enforced from time to time hereafter as applicable to you."
Are there any legal aftermaths if I decide to serve only one month notice? And who will listen to me in case I am harassed?
