Coming to your point of interest of defending officials in the disciplinary proceedings, as an experienced person in that field I am to add tht the govt.oficials who are in service or retired only can defend a disc.case as a defence counsel either under CCS(CCA)RULES 1965 or any other state disc.rules.If the disciplinary proceedings are some other nature, i am not very clear about that
