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.

University rank issue

Respected sir, I am a final year MCA student in a reputed college, situated in Kerala. I got admission for 3years MCA course. There is a lateral entry option for MCA course. So the lateral entry students have to study for only last 2 years. For calculating the final result, university will consider all the marks of 3 years for us and marks of 2 years for them. Due to this reason, our marks will be definitely less than them. This will affect our university rank also. Actually, I am the university topper, but due to this lateral entry the first rank may be changed to second rank, because average of 3 year marks will be less than that of 3 years marks. Our results will be published on April 2021. Sir, please suggest a solution for this problem.

Calling off Roka/ Engagement

Are there any legal consequences of breaking a roka? Roka ceremony was performed without any prior intimation. The girl's family visited us as planned and we were completely unaware of their intention of finalising roka. The exchange of pleasantries and gifts took place after they gifted some gifts to my family and in return my mom had to give the girl's family a pair of gold ear rings. We were not prepared for this. Two months later as things did not go well between self and the girl, we decided to call off the roka after girl first suggested the same. They are now demading money for the gifts they had gifted us and also an affidavit stating that I will not misuse the girls pictures which she shared with me. They have threatened to ruin my reputation at my work place. The roka and gifts were as per their choice. We never demanded anything. They have also spoken to my boss and taken out a letter and spoken ill off me to my boss in the phone. They have tried to damage my reputation at my work place infront of my boss. What is the suggested course of action for me to overcome this? I am innocent and the girl's family is trying to bring disrepute to my name. What should I now do? Should I file an FIR and a complaint? What if they file it before I do?
