 pendancy of criminal case may hamper his acceptanc of his resignation.

even if he is able to join the pendancy of case may hamper completion of probation in Bank and he should resign only if he is permanent and can hold lien.


Dy Director

Mr Rocky Smith quoted


"It cannot be lost sight of that ultimate objective of every legal system is to arrive at truth, punish the guilty and protect the innocent. There is no scope for any pre-conceived notion or view."


It will he the happiest day if this happens in evry case.


The department rarely takes cognizance of private complaints unless detention is brought to notice. In otherwords,the official machinery would be paralysed due to pouring in of complaints based on jealous and motives.Expert Sudhir has rightly opined.Why you hesitate to let known your identity.


It is not clear whether registering of FIR against the husband will effect the job career.  If yes, in what way it will effect.  There are two views.  Somebody says as soon as FIR is registered, the employee will be suspended and some other says only on conviction he will be suspended.  Can anybody explain what is the actual legal position on this aspect.  

Dy Director

Mr Ravinder P expressede


"as soon as FIR is registered, the employee will be suspended and some other says only on conviction he will be suspended. "


I do not agree.  Deemed suspension is a result of 48 hours of custody.


In case the charges are serious department doe snot even need to wait for FIR before suspension leave aside custody.

Dy Director

Mr Gabriel said


"department rarely takes cognizance of private complaints" I am sorry. Department does take congnizance of even private complaint addressed to department if it has a substance.  Most of the disciplinary action against Govt servants on matrimonial misconduct are on private complaint by wife or in-laws.


In this case the matter is of criminal nature. Court has taken cognizance that is the reason he is on bail. WHich authroity can write on his resignation file that "no disciplinary or criminal case is pending"



To Sudhir kumar sir,


What is the position if FIR has been registered and the accused got anticipatory bail and there is no custody at all.  


A mere pendency of criminal case against the candidate will not render him lose his employment opportunities.  He has been arrayed as an accused in a false case foisted by the police based on some false complaint. Why I am insisting of the false is that until the case is not disposed and the accused is convicted, he will be treated as innocent, therefore as far as his employment opportunity at present, he is innocent, let him make a mention about his pending criminal case and the stage too, but he cannot be deprived of his privilege to get an employment outside defence which is the only source for his resettlement.
