You have stated, "....Now I want to challenge the prosecution documents", what is the stage of prosecution where you want to decline ?

What are the subject document(s) which you had accepted in departmental inquiry but disputing at this stage ?

What is the dispute with respect to the documents involved ?

Incomplete rather no facts have been posted for consideration and obligation.

It is advisable to consult a local prudent lawyer (if you have not engaged till now) for professional guidance and necessary proceeding.

Retired employee.

A person can not approbate and reprobate on the same issue.  Once you have admitted a document, unless there is an apparent misrepresentation on that document, without justification for denying it now, your submission may not be accepted.

Remember, you have a right to make submissions.   Whether it is admissable or not depends upon the Investigating officer and the value of such a document in the investigation.  I do not think that entire evidence is in only one document and in banking a chain of events, recorded facts establish the charge.

Something happens in a Bank, which is not as per the Bank rules and regulations that puts the bank's interest in jeopardy or straight fraud committed either by the Employee/Officer or by an outsider, such incident/fraud is once discovered, the first step is Investigation is ordered for fact-finding. It is the responsibility of the Investigating Officer appointed for the purpose, to thoroughly examine all the facts/documents and submit his report duly attaching the copies of the documents ensuring that the said documents are properly preserved in the branch/office under dual control, intimating at the end of his report,  the name/s of the Official/s responsible for the misdemeanor. The next step is for the management to conduct Inquiry and an Inquiry Authority is appointed who marks the documents (which were duly attested) and records Witness first of which shall be the Investigating Officer who identifies and helps to mark off the documents, who gets cross-examined by the Defence representative. All Management Witnesses are cross-examined and vice-versa.  For facilitating a smooth process of the Inquiry Presenting Officer is appointed on behalf of the Management and the accused Employee can appoint a Defence Representative who normally shall be a person from the Union/Association the said Employee belongs to. After completion of the Inquiry, the Inquiry Authority gives his decision whether an Official is guilty or not. An appropriate authority normally Zonal Head in the rank of Deputy General Manager/General Manager pronounces the punishment.

 

When such due process is followed during which the documents are identified and accepted by both sides, there shall be little chance after completion of the inquiry, not to accept such documents at a later date.

Whatever I mention above was relating to the normal procedure followed in the process of Inquiry starting from Investigation.

 

Now you are going into the specifics of the case, the background of which is not known to the forum members nor it is possible or practical to bring the entire episode into this forum.

 

Kindly note that my clarification is to the extent that when you accepted the documents, during the due process of inquiry in SBI with your Defence Representative by your side and in the presence of Inquiry Authority, it would be difficult to take back your word. Kindly note that Inquiry Authority, although is an employee of the bank, does not represent Bank and his role is akin to a Judge in Court. It is the Presenting Officer who is representing the Bank like a Public Prosecutor in Courts. When PO gave you papers for your acceptance, your DR should have examined the same and should have taken a stand on your behalf (duly consulting with you) in the inquiry itself. If you have merely attested some documents in your capacity of an Officer of the Bank, not as part of the Inquiry and later the same attestation is being used against you, you along with your DR should have contested such use of papers signed by you as attesting Official during the Inquiry itself.

It is better you take the entire matter with all documents and details to your Association Leaders and seek their guidance, who shall be in a better position to help you.
