Hi guys... I'm currently serving my notice period. I have 2 months left to serve. I was talking to my projects client regarding the future tasks and I sort of let them know that I have resigned. Later I am thinking why the hell did I need to tell them. Did I do the right thing ?? Will my management create any issue regarding this. Is it a big issue letting clients know?what can happen?? Did I do the right thing??

It's not advised to let client know about your own resignation, generally your supervisor should tell them. Also it would have been ok if you have told them at later stage a week prior of your LWD. But it's ok simply apologize to your supervisor and tell him it was a slip of tongue.

I don't feel there is any legal policy in this regard, but do apologize to your supervisor and let things cool down.

There's nothing illegal about it. They would have to be informed at some point. You can talk to your supervisor and tell it was a slip of the tongue. They might not be elated but it's fixable. In terms of the future replacement and plan, it might have to be communicated sooner to avoid any issues.
