If you get quashing of FIR then FIR goes from the date it was registered therefore it won’t affect your prospect of joining the said government job. Get an observation from the court that the said FiR was a malicious act. Rest contact me. Thanks

No, I dont’ see it being a hurdle. Why would anyone hold a quashed FIR, acquittal or discharge against someone? If they do so you will be entitled to proceed legally to right such iniquity. But do get that FIR quashed first.

It will not leave a criminal record against you sir, as the said FIR will be quashed after that nothing will remain against you in any court of law you can join whatever job you wish to do. If they ask you specifically you can mention the said fact as well.

According to the facts stated, its not a crime. It may not be affected. Final report says that the FIR was filed due to misunderstanding between parties. The court accepted this report, so there will be no adverse effect on Govt jobs.
