When the inquiry report is stated to have been submitted to convening / disciplinary authority, there is no question of "de-novo" inquiry, which means "from the start".

T. Kalaiselvan, Advocate (Advocate)     13 November 2023

De Novo Enquiry. De novo enquiry is generally ordered in the following contingencies: on the orders of the appropriate judicial authorities in those cases when serious procedural irregularities have crept in the conduct of disciplinary proceedings or the principles of natural justice have grossly been violated.

If the concerned employee is requesting for an inquiry from the start citing procedural lapses and serious allegations about the irregularities, then the High court may decide the petition for denova inquiry on merits
