When Employee's services are terminated for whatever reason including dismisal, all eligible terminal benefits if any shall be settled immediately. No separate or further benefits are available to family members of such employee who was already removed from service before his death.

It all depends on serious cases of charges and nature of the offence.  The proper course is to contact the Officers' Association or Pensioners' association, of the same bank, where you can get things moved in the right directions without wastage of time and money.

If at all there was any claim due to him your deceased father would have made attempts to get them during his lifetime as he lived for over 5 years after he was reportedly acquitted in the criminal cases.

It appears that he had not taken any steps towrds this  because he knew that he was not eligible for any other benefits since he was removed from service. Please remember that the removal from service by conclusion report of a departmental inquiry is different from the acquittal in a criminal case. 

However, expungement can take place if charges are dismissed, withdrawn or acquitted. Most convictions cannot be expunged unless they are overturned or dismissed. ... Arrest and court records can be expunged if you are not guilty or if his case was dismissed.

Holding that the pendency of a criminal case cannot be a bar for an employee to approach the Labour Court to challenge a termination order, the Madras High Court dismissed a plea moved by an employee seeking to reinstate him, following his acquittal in the criminal case, as he had not raised an industrial dispute within the stipulated time limit of three years.


Justice S M Subramaniam made this observation while dismissing a plea moved by an employee of Tamil Nadu Zari Limited seeking reinstatement with all attendant benefits by quashing his termination order issued on February 3, 2014.

As per the case, K Ramesh was suspended on 23 July 2012 for the theft of zari. Thereafter, following a domestic enquiry he was suspended and thereafter terminated from service on February 3, 2014. Even the conciliation proceedings in 2015 had failed and no industrial dispute challenging his dismissal was raised. Now, following his acquittal regards zari theft, he moved the present plea seeking to direct Tamil Nadu Zari Limited to reinstate him with attendant benefits.

However, Justice Subramaniam on pointing out to the failure of the petitioner in moving an industrial dispute immediately after conciliation failed, said, “Pendency of the criminal case cannot be a bar for an employee to approach the Labour Court to challenge the order of termination. Even in case of acquittal, the same would not be a bar for the employer to continue the disciplinary proceedings. The standard of proof required for a criminal case is strict in nature. However, no such strict proof is required in the disciplinary proceedings.”
In view of the above you may ascertain the fcts and the background before you plan to claim any such benefits on behalf of your deceased father, also please note to ensure that if your father had already made the claims without your knowledge  during his life time because it is around 12 years after he died.

the said convictional judgement was set aside by addl session judge on 25.02.2005.after that bank preferred an appeal before hon'ble high court of odisha against the acquittal judgment of addl.session judge bearing case no criminal review 400/2005. and on 24.09.2008 employee died.
that the hon'ble high court of odisha has demised the criminal review petition and granting liberty to deceased employee on 11.04.2019.

Who's in the market for this sort of capacity? Index has one accomplice to report, the Arch Mission Foundation that is attempting to store human learning on Earth as well as even somewhere else in the close planetary system - like on  Elon Musk's Tesla Roadster that SpaceX propelled into space. Past that, Catalog isn't prepared to state who different clients may be or in the event that it'll charge for its DNA composing administration.

Was your father removed/dismissed from service on account of conviction by the Court or was it because of a departmental proceedings? After the death of your father, who was/were the respondents in the matter before the High Court? Was the High Court apprised of the death of your father while the matter was pending before the High Court?
