15 days notice period would mean only 15 days not business days. also as per laws employee is eligible for weekly offs. It is not fair treatment which your current company is offering.
In the Offer letter, the seperation clause/notice period clause must mention the number of days of notice period a person has to serve (it could be 1 montth/2 months....depending upon the concerned company policy).
Usually, this notice period includes off days (sat,sun) as well. Otherwise, it must be claerly mentioned in the Offer letter that 1 month/15 days notice period means 30/15 business days. But in your case, the offer letter does not mention that, thus implying that the 15 days notice period includes off days as well.
Now, if you leave early to join your new company, it might be that you would lose out on your relieving letter or acceptance of resignation, both of which are imp docs.
Have a word with your reporting authority to work these issues out.
