Retired employees returning: NSF

Dimapur, February 20 (MExN): The Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) reiterates it charge that employees who were retired under the Nagaland Retirement from Public Employment Act, 2009 are returning to their jobs owing to a loophole in a government memorandum. The NSF has strongly cautioned the state government against taking any decision on the said memorandum, said to have been issued in 2010 and 2011 and has also told the State to act on the anomaly.

“It is pertinent to state that, as a result of the Clause-2 of the Office Memorandum dated 11th October 2011 in partial modification of the Department Office Memorandum of even number dated 26th November, 2009 and dated 15th February, 2010, many employees who have been accorded farewell and left service are coming back to service even after their length of service has completed,” the NSF said in a statement received here today.
“Point No. 2” of the memorandum has given room for certain categories of employees to double benefit, the NSF said. “…because they are coming back to service through the court as their service rendered on contract/adhoc/work-charged basis was not counted towards the length of service even after receiving the benefit in the form of increments, leave entitlement, pension purposes etc.”

The NSF has denounced this manipulation. Due to the loophole many employees would be in service for more than 40 years which is just the other way of revoking the Retirement Act 2009, the NSF said.

The organization has strongly reminded the government of Nagaland to appraise the court with all valid documents including the latest Office Memorandum issued on 22nd December 2011 for earliest disposal of the case. The case has been dragging in the court and detrimentally affecting the educated unemployed who are “getting over-aged day by day,” the NSF said.

The federation has warned that any individual or government official “doing fault outside the court of law” on this matter shall be liable of responsibility. “The federation once again cautions the Government of Nagaland to refrain from taking any decisions in the form of office memorandum on the length of service which will only be void of justice but engineered to benefit a few of the vested interest government employees.”
