Resignation not accepted by state government resultantly unable to join new job in central  government

I joined as an Auditor in the Odisha government in February 2023 and gave my resignation in September 2023 to join a position in the central government. Since then, my salary has been stopped, but my resignation was not accepted due to pending work regarding the non-submission of audit reports. I expressed my inability to submit the reports citing reasons and showed willingness to refund the amount of my salary for the days of default. However, despite three reminders, I have not received any response for about six months now.
I did not take up the previous central government job for which I requested resignation. However, I have now secured another central government job. Could you please advise me on the procedure I should follow now and what actions could be taken?

Alleged Forgery and Misrepresentation: Discrepancies in BPCL Petrol Pump’s Diesel Storage Reported to PESO

Petroleum & Explosives Safety Organisation (PESO) issues license to Bharat Petroleum Corporation’s petrol pumps for storage of Petrol/Diesel. A petrol pump of BPCL illegally filled diesel in a tanker beyond the permissible limits for which a complaint was lodged by me with PESO. PESO asked for an explanation. In its reply, the BPCL officer under reported the quantity of diesel filled in the tanker and in support of his claim, submitted a forged sales data which was prepared after deleting sales entries from the computerised records. The fact that the sales data was forged was brought to the notice of PESO by me after PESO shared BPCL’s reply with me. PESO again questioned BPCL to which they confirmed that their dealer had deleted entries from the data. Subsequently, PESO has written to the police to take action under the Petroleum Act according to which the offence is bailable whereas I am asking PESO to file an FIR since forgery of data, preparation of a false document and its use as a genuine one is a serious offence under the IPC. The PESO officer refuses to do so. Is he right in not filing an FIR ? Am I unjustified in demanding an FIR in the matter ?
