When you join a Government job you have to fill up an attestation form. Answering questions in the attestation form you will have to mention about the case pending against you. The appointing authority will decide whether to give you appointment or not based on the seriousness of the case.

Yes, you need to disclose the information as to the ciminal cases. The offences alleged involve moral turpitude. As such, the crucial issue would be whether you have been acquitted on merits.

It all depends on the actual query in the application.  If the term is Are you Convicted you can safely say NO.  If the term is are any criminal cases are pending, then you must state only facts.  The key point is you are not supposed to state false and misleading information.

Yaa today i have mentioned everything in attestation form and they have asked me have been arrested, have been convicted, have you been prosecuted, and i mentioned everything in the form will they give appointment

You may await further decision. If appointment is denied, you may seek judicial review.

If they reject and later if i acquitted from the case  then can i appeal for the appointment sir

Chances are, that you will not be appointed, if you are the only candidate selected for the post. Even, if there are more than one selected candidates, then also, the candidate with clean records would be preferred.

I thought that you have already got the appointment offer and you are asking here before joining. If you have stated all the facts, wait and see whether they confirm your appointment. If during the waiting period you get acquitted  promptly inform them. If you get convicted keep quiet and do not join.

I would sooner assume than confirm that if you have a criminal record, government jobs in India won't be available for you.  But the former assistant in our company, even if it wasn't a state company,was fired, once her petty larceny was uncovered. I really don't know what to advise. Maybe you could check with layboard for any remote freelance vacancies or overseas vacancies that don't have to deal with criminal record check?
