I am a software professional and recently police has caught me in drink and drive case (section 185 motor vehicle act). I paid fine in the court.
Just wanted to know in future if I try to switch to a different company then what would be the result of my background verification? Is it a matter of concern for my future perspectives and opportunities.
HR who is involved in background verification or BG check experts kindly give some idea! I am worried
Thanks in advance.

This a traffic offence but criminal in nature and you have paid the fine.
I presume no jail term was decreed.
It would reflect in Crime Records Bureau database and your case may be referred by police dept,Insurance companies in future
HR verifications do not look into traffic violations per se.
Chances are high that this fine will not come in radar of verification agencies.
Hope right lessons are drawn from such avoidable incidents in a moment of negligence.

Thank you so much for the information sir, this gives a sense of relief. Yes now I get to know the effect of breaking the law.
The insurance companies that you are talking about is related to vehicle insurance or life insurance. Can it cause a problem as almost all software companies has their employee insurance outsourced.

Dear friend,
The reply of our learned member Mr. Nathrao seems to be the most appropriate one. I do not wish to burden your already stressed mind and guilty conscious by tendering more advice in the matter of relaxation through certain habits of personal taste. If things of enjoyment are done responsibly with some degree of intelligence and consideration as to when, where and to what extent, no harm.
Simply forget the incident and exercise selective restraint in the matter of relaxation in future. Though some degree of criminality was attached, the act was only a contravention/ non compliance and has no bearing on your employment potential in any way. In my opinion, it is only a trivial offence punished with a mere fine and need not be mentioned in your personal resume so that it cannot figure out in any BGV in future.
