Payment due to shortfall in serving notice period is an expense and deduction is not available for it.

Its a penalty imposed by the employer for not serving notice period. In Income tax no exemption or deduction is allowed for penalty.

Amount paid by new employer will act as joining bonus and would be taxable as normal taxable income.
