Past records for Employment
I joined Indian coast guard as Asst Commandant in june 2014. I have completed my training. During my probation period I made a mistake of deserting my ship and returned to my home due to my personnel reasons at home. For which a notice has been sent to my home by local police, asking my parents to disclose my whereabouts. My brother sent a reply to which asking mercy for me. But there was no response back. Now I am planning to join central govt job. And if I disclose this past history to my new employer, will my offer stands valid ? 1. How can my new employer know about my past, if I myself do not disclose ? 2. After three years from desertion will I be from all the charges ?
As per Section 25.(1) of Coast Guards Act, 1979 any person subject to this Act, who absents himself aiding desertion from his ship or from the place where his duty requires him to be, with an intention of not returning to such ship or place, or who, at any time and under any circumstances when absent from his ship or place of duty does any act which shows that he has an intention of not returning to such ship or place is said to desert.
You have left your ship when it was harbored and not in transit but your duty at that time required you to be present on that ship and you remain absent from your place of duty with an intention of not returning so yes, you deserted your post as per Section 25.(1) of Coast Guards Act, 1979. As a result a desertion case is filed against you by Indian Coast Guards.
