central govt. probation and confirmation rules


I am posting my question for all experts, seeking a genuine and timely advice.

I was appointed as Senior Systems Analyst in Pay band 3 (Rs. 15600-39100 with GP of Rs. 6600/- . I joined the service on 9.9.2010 on a probation for a period of one year. i.e. upto 8.9.2011.

Three years earlier, a FIR U/S 406, 498A IPC was registered against me and that was quashed by Honorable Punjab and Haryana High Court in July, 2007.

Therefore while filling up the Special Security Questionnaire, Where information regarding any pending case was asked, i didn't mentioned anything regarding the said case.

My local police verification report stating the above facts that a case was registered and quashed by High Court was sent to my office on 04-03-2011.

Knowing all these facts my office neither issue any notice for further clarification nor issued any letter of probation confirmation or extension till 9.9.2013.

Suddenly after more than three years of my service, Office issued me a letter of probation extension stating the reason that i have violated the rules by concealing the information and  my work, conduct and performance was not up to the mark. So my probation is being extended up to 30.06.2014.

Kindly suggest me if i can move to court against this extension of probation period.

Thanks in Advance for your precious suggestions......

Dy Director

the said attestation form also contains details of pst criminal record.  you had hidden the same.


Respected Sudhir Kumar ji,

It was asked for any pending case and at the time of joining the service and no case was pending. Kindly suggest , what are my rights in this case.

Dy Director

Please see the form again.


This is expected to be four paged form wherein last page there is a questionaire where one of the question refer to past criminal record.


extention of probation on this ground is not a valid decision.  On the contrary disciplinary action would have been more appropriate decision.  But in that case also your probation would have got affected.


Respected Sudhir ji, Kindly suggest as the facts of my case: 1. An FIR was lodged u/s 498A/406 IPC in 2006. 2. I was granted interim Anticipatory bail and made absolute after i joined investigation and the FIR was quashed based on compromise before any challan/chargesheet in trial court in 2007. 3. I joined central govt job in 2010 where it was asked in attestation form that if was ever arrested, procecuted, detained. I replied NA and mentioned NIL before all subsections. 4. I replied so as i was of the opinion that i was never in police/judicial custody. 5. Now my services have been discharged on concealment of facts. Please guide me if there is any saviour for me.

Respected Sudhir ji

Please advice any legal grounds if in my favour for remedy.


Dy Director

So you did not intimate that one FIR was registered and quashed?


Respected Sir,

There was no such direct question about the registration of FIR. If there were a question Like:

Q: Is there any FIR ever registered against you? then i would have answered YES

but there were only 2 questions as i have told earlier.

Please advice me on it.
