Dear Respected community members,
I am working in a Central PSU under the Dept. of Atomic Energy as E-2 level officer (in HR Department), I am 37 years old.I joined this company in 2013 (October) after resigning from another PSU. In all I have 8 yrs. exp. in PSUs. My question is -
Prelude - (1) I joined this company on 30 Oct, 2013. On 5 Nov, 2013 a recruitment was held in the company locally to recruit workmen category (Fitter, Tradesman, Boiler Operators etc.). Without any written directive from my HoD, I was verbally directed by him to help the officers doing the recruitment process on the day of the interviews. I was new, and without any hitch I went and helped the team, doing mostly co-ordination type of job. Later a gross violation of recruitment rules was discovered and the CBI also came into the picture. They investigated for last one year and chargesheeted several top level executives of the selection committies. I have received a memorandum seeking explanation as part of internal enquiry (departmental, not CBI) as to why I have made certain gross violations during the scrutiny of applications (I want to assure that I have not done any violation, since on the day of the interviews, as the candidates were being sent into the room for the interview before the selection committee, four HR officers including me were tasked with the work of checking their certificates including verification with the originals). I was helping out the team.
It was only four days after joining this company that this incident took place. It is mentioned in the allegation of charges against me that if my reply is not found to be satisfactory, I might be chargesheeted or other disciplinary action may ensue.
Meanwhile just one month back I applied through PROPER INTIMATION to another PSU for a vacancy and also in UPSC, both through proper intimation requesting for NOC (No Objection Certificate) in the event of my getting interview call from the UPSC or/and the other PSU.
Can I be refused NOC just because my company has issued memorandum of allegation seeking explanation from me ???? SOmeone said, NOC can be refused only when charges are framed against the employee, that is , chargesheet is issued, but in my case, charge sheet hasn't been issued, rather explanation is asked for as per the allegations. Please reply, I am in great need of help.
