Based on the above, would the following alwayas be true --

ctime >= mtime >= atime ?

No, for two reasons:

If a file is read, its atime is updated, but neither ctime nor mtime. Then the last relation is not true any more.

One can set mtime and atime to arbitrary dates in the future. Then both relations are not true any more.
