After filing the chargesheet, you would have to attend trial in the case. The bank would have to prove that you have committed breach of trust against it. Nevertheless, though reinstated you would have to stand trail or go for quashing if you evidences supporting your claim.

Your employer has not exonerated you from the charges of breach of trust and it appears that the charges in the inquiry are proved. However the finding in the domestic inquiry shall have no bearing on the criminal trial because a strict proof is required there. if your employer is ready to co-operate with you, the offence can be compounded. Plead with your employer, since a lenient view has already been considered by him.

Court trial in your case is criminal trial and case has to be proved by public prosecutor.

When the case against you was initiated, you were facing two actions, i.e. departmental and criminal. The Bank has exonerated you from the departmental action but the police has found the offence proved against you, hen they filed a charge sheet against you.

Now you will need to fight the trial before the trial court. However, it appears that the Bank is on your side. So you may try to get the offence u/s 406 compounded by compromising the matter with the complainant. The Bank is the complainant in the matter so it should not be difficult.

Now if you have evidence to prove it as false , FIR can be quashed. You may take the help of your advocate to file a quash petition in the higher court. In case your quash petition is not allowed, take trial and try to disprove the charges to get an acquittal.

If the charge sheet has been filed in the court and you have not obtained bail then you may be arrested by police at any time without a warning being given. If your employer agrees to let you go then the criminal case can be withdrawn from the court on a joint mention.
