Civil Service Regulations – Regulation 351 AA
The word “judicial proceeding” used under Regulation 351-AA would include every proceeding pending in the Court whether original or at the appellate stage. The judicial proceeding means proceeding over which Judge presides. A criminal appeal cannot be taken out from the definition of “judicial proceeding” and thereby, if one is acquitted but appeal thereupon is pending, he/she would be governed by Regulation 351-AA and thereby, entitled to the provisional pension.
