Some companies do BGV prior to the candidate's joining. But many companies do it after the employee joins. The reason for this is most of the companies outsource BGV to professional organisations & there is a cost involved. If the employee doesn't join the amount spent doesn't serve the purpose.
My suggestion to your friend is to introspect the reason for the BGV failure & correct it, if he has furnished any such information inadvertently.
Generally companies do not reveal the reasons for BGV failures.

Questioning the co, : After joining asking to sign the appointment order with terms and condition, which way is correct legally. Offer letter does not have all terms & condition. Olden days, Offer letter with appoint ment order terms will be given. While joining signed order should be submitted. Will any corporate co will sign contract after undertaken/starting the work with mear few basic terms. Why cos see partiality.Why employees do not insist for a govt body to establish fair recruitment process.

1. The prospective candidate supposed to join does not join for various reasons.
2. The employee working in the organisation quits without giving the required notice period, so pressure builds up to fill up the vacancy.
3. The HR department has time to fill up the vacant position but in the current scenario HR department can't take chances & tries to close the position as soon as possible.
4. The time taken for a through BGV for one candidate will be around 15 days.
These are the causes for BGV's being done after the candidate joins.
If we fill up a few vacancies a year BGV before joining but when hundreds of candidates are recruited then it becomes impractical to do BGV beforehand, though I would still advocate BGV before joining.
In my experience we have come across candidates who give references of relatives though friends/ relatives can't be given as reference, wrong past CTC data, wrong past experience data, masked break in service in career
If candidate furnishes right information BGV is not a matter of concern. Challenging in a court could lead to embarrassment as the BGV data will be made public. This is my opinion.
