As per my Knowledge, in every State and Department, before to join as a Govt. Employee, they seek 'Full & Complete Details' about the Employee, and after joining the Employee they will cofirm all the 'Detaild ' what- ever provided by him.
So, it is the duty of the Job-Seeking Employee to furnish all the details 'True & Correct'.
With concerned to your present query:
(a) Don't lie' with your Employer, either Govt. OR Private Sector;
(b) Your Case is not yet 'Finalized';
(c) Niether you 'Convicted' nor 'Punished'
(d) Why you yourself using the word 'CRIMINAL BACKGROUND ' again and again;
(e) Did it 'Proved by Police' OR you 'Punished' OR you 'Convicted'.
For all the questions your answer may be "NO".
Then, where is the question to 'hide' and lie with the employer.
Exactly, they will appoint you; if you are the qualified person as per their requirment.
If you will be appointed, they shall follow, as per the 'Rules' and 'Procedures', they will get enquire about all the details, provided by you.
So, don't be lie with your 'Employer'.
