Or, did they say they want you to join "as soon as possible?"
I would consider ASAP to mean after the notice period ends and not before. If they have given you a specific date to start and it does not allow you to provide notice, this does not sound like a Fortune 500 organization and I would be very cautious here.
However, I don't live in India and there many be many awkward business practices even in Fortune 500 organizations operating in India.

I guess you would have got Job in company A, by telling them that you are so and so years of experience, which includes your 10 months also in present company.. Now, if you don't get relieving letter from your current company. How will you show the company A, these 10 months?
Even I am in India and work in a Top MNC company..
I personally would never break the notice period for any reason.. 10 months experience will come handy in future..
