Mr. Wala, Mr. Anonymous has already mentioned that DOB of 1959 came into existence due to clerical mistake. We must take that he has genuine and logical explanation for the same. And I am sure that he will be able to clear the departmental enquiry. All the best for him. more
Even if "DOB recorded in Matric certificate is the conclusive proof of DOB", if the basis of "his primary school record DOB of May 1959" is the Birth Certificate issued by the Hospital in which he was born, will it (Hospital's Certificate) be considered for inquiry against him or will it be ignored?
I think what is the basis of his primary school record DOB of May 1959, will guide further processing of inquiry against him. more
As per law, DOB recorded in Matric certificate is the conclusive proof of DOB. However in case of complaint against you about your DOB, your employer can give you a show cause notice and intiate inquiry. There you will have opportunity to explain your position and circumstances under there is discrepancy in DOB. Nothing to worry. You can't be retired without holding an inquiry. more
You should not panic, DoB in matric certificate is valid and is an authentic record. You should stickup to this date while replying to memo issued in this case. Your reply should be in two lines that the date of birth is May 1962 and not May 1959 as per Matric Certificate. more
the most authentic record in the country is the Matric certificate issued by the Board(known as Xth passing certificate). primary certificate may have a date of birth but then if it is incorrect then it has obviously been corrected in xth certificate. it is indeed the final document if any confusion regarding age prevails.so no action can be brought against you without giving you a notice. you need to reply to the notice- 1. your matric certificate is true and authentic.2. primary certificate has a clerical mistake. more
