What are the actions an employer can take in case of a notice period not being served if it is mentioned in the offer letter and they have it signed from the employee that either a 3 month notice period needs to be served or pay the salary in lieu of?

My employer is asking me to either serve a negotiated notice period of one month (in offer letter- 3 months) Or else to pay a certain amount to them. Otherwise they will take legal actions and consider ot a case of absconding when I have handed over the assets already?

What are the ways to defend myself if my Manager is not acceprting my Resignation and declares me Absconding from Job?

I told my Manager three months ago about my intention to leave, but he asked me not to leave for some time as his Ratings get affected due to attrition.
