Denial of Back Wages citing Quashing of 498A IPC is not honorable acquittal
Respected Sir/ Madam, I am a Central Government of India servant. In the year 2012 a Criminal Complaint U/s 498A, 323 & 506 was lodged against me by my wife. I was arrested by the police and had to remain for 118 days in judicial custody. I was suspended during this period and was in receipt of subsistence allowance. After getting bail my suspension was revoked. I joined the service. In the year 2015 Hon'ble High Court quashed the case based on mutual compromise between me and my wife. I submitted the order of the court to my office. The Disciplinary Authority after issuing a show cause and receiving my representation against the same has decided to TREAT THE PERIOD OF SUSPENSION (118 DAYS) BE AS SUCH IN ACCORDANCE WITH FR 54-B AND THE PAYMENT RESTRICTED TO SUBSISTENCE ALLOWANCE ALREADY DRAWN BY ME citing it was not an 'honourable acquittal' but a 'compromise settlement' and the charges levied against me were serious. My Humble query is :
i) Is the decision of Disciplinary Authority good in the eyes of law ?
ii) Will approaching the Hon'ble CAT be fruitful ?
iii) Can I approach the Hon’ble High Court directly ?
Kindly guide and help me.
