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.

Dear Colleague,
As well said by our Colleague, very crisp and clear, when criminal case is registered, then it is honestly to be declared and disclosed to the prospective employer without fail. It is legally, morally, ethically right to disclose such a development to the Organization well in advance rather than hiding the fact which might workout negatively later on even after joining the services which will be much worse situation.

When we approach such challenges very positively and openly even though it may lead to a temporary set back some-times it will give lot of positive strength in the long run. A good BVG Firm is really capable of Locating such cases registered and if it comes as a Negative Result then the image of Candidate will be negative in the subsequent time later on also.

Moreover even if BVG fails to notice ( very rare chances) such a case registered, after joining, there may be requirement to go for hearings to the court and many more consequents like leave, loss of metal peace, remark on hiding fact and so many things will follow.

Overall it is advisable to disclose honestly, the fact now itself what may come the net result leaving rest to the Almighty. This is one way Professional Ethics.

All the Best and God Bless
