Stop Indian IT companies from forcefully holding employees with 2 months' notice period

In most of Developed and Developing Nations:
Ranges from 1 day to a maximum of 4 weeks notice which is further flexible and no employee can be forced to stay and work.
India:60+ days, and furthermore often non-negotiable  and again they won't give choice for buy out also.

Almost all IT firms in India have made a mandate for their employees to serve a notice period of 60+ days which is non-negotiable most of the times. People who have resigned and don't want to continue in a particular company for whatever reason have no choice but to stay and work for a period of 2+ months which if not complied with, might lead to getting blacklisted forever with that company or loosing experience proof letter for their employment.

There is no valid reason to force someone to work for 2 more months when they have to discontinue working for personal reasons. Most of the times those 2 months become unbearable as employee may not be treated very well because of his/her resignation.
Also, it is unrealistic for anyone to plan that far ahead for their future actions and resign in advance not knowing state of the issue in next 2 months while failing to give immediate attention to problem at hand.

I believe IT has been every growing job sector for India but it seems like these  policies has not been evaluated by Indian Ministry of Labor and Employment so I want this to be brought to their notice. Please sign if you agree with the cause.
