Filing a defamation case against office colleague

I scolded a female apprentice working in my firm ( a PSU under Ministry of Railways) for coming late to work on regular basis. Earlier she worked under me and she didn't like my ways, because I am a disciplinarian & every knows that she isn't fit for any technical work & that's why I made her leave my group.So now she is working under someone else. After the scolding yesterday,she has complained to her senior that I publically scolded her which was done not in a harsh way as conveyed by her,but to make her understand to come on time. Morever she has also complained that I have struck off her attendance just to prove her point regarding the scolding. There is absolutely no proof (obviously when I didn't do anything) regarding her attendance complaint & moreover my scolding was nothing derogatory & I can have many witnesses to vouch on that. All my life, I have been very straight forward, but today just because she is a girl, I was asked to be careful, instead of she being on the receiving end. This caused a dent in my reputation, given me mental setback & I want to file a case against her. Plz advice me the procedure to file a defamation case against her.

A defamation case can be filed U/s 499 IPC. But proving is not that simple.
