I am a final year student who recently got a job in TCS but I have an accident criminal case pending in which I was involved as the accused. The case is not strong and I hopefully will get acquitted, but I have to start my Background Verification with TCS and also submit a Non-Criminal Affidavit. Should I disclose the matter to the company and probably get rejected, or should I just wait for the background verification to see what happens? Also, the case hasn't started yet just which means the first date for the case has not been set neither have I received any summons from the court regarding this case.

Accident cases involve violation of the provisions of the Motor Vehicles Act,1988 and the Rules framed thereunder. Causing major accidents involving human life would only be treated as serious offence under the Act. Anyway, since FIR would have been registered against the poster, my suggestion would be that it is advisable to disclose the fact to the prospective employer beforehand rather than waiting for the BGV report.
