The office did not send any letters and did not arrange any enquiries regarding this until may 31 2017.Suddenly on may 31,while I was arranging for the retirement party,the General Manager called me and said that my retirement benefits are going to be withheld. Next day,he gave this order. The order says"The terminal benefits payable to the officer,consequent on his retirement are ordered to be withheld,till the settlement of the court order mentioned below.Accordingly,he is relieved of his duties from the services of the union on the afternoon of 31.05.2017".

They just mentioned the court order and did not attach any. I downloaded the judgement copy from the internet. The court order says,the insurance company has to give the compensation to the affected parties and it has rights to claim the amount from the office administration.As you can see above,the judgement came on april 2016,but until May 2017 they did not even inform me that I am involved in this case. The office has not gone for appeal till now.
When I asked the details to the GM,he said that the driver don't have the badge to drive heavy vehicle and it was my duty to check whether the driver has the badge or not . But I did not appoint him and as a marketing manager,my duty is to check whether the milk has reached the particular place at correct time.I worked and retired as an extension officer grade 2 and the marketing manager post was the additional charge given to me during 2012-2014.
