Village guards (VGs) of five districts – Mon, Tuensang, Kiphire, Phek and Longleng – have appealed to the state chief minister to fulfill their charter of demands that include post creation and promotion, framing service rules, enhancing ration money and clothing allowances.

In a joint press release, havildar major T.A.Trakha, representing Phek district; havildar major T.A. Ngamlao, Mon district; havilar major Niongo, Longleng district; havildar Thronginku, Kiphire district and havildar major Mosha, Tuensang district pointed out that there has been no post creation in those five districts, and as such havildar majors in five districts, who were rendering their services for over 25 years, were deprived of promotion.

On farming of service rules, they said it has been 55 years since VG was established, however, no service rules have been made for them.

With regard to this, they appealed to the chief minister to bring out service rules for VG set up.
Further, they lamented that though VGs were deemed state government employees, they were given step-motherly treatment without any benefits due to absence of service rules.

Also, pointing out that present ration money was Rs.25 per day while on duty, they appealed to the chief minister to enhance the amount to Rs.150 to Rs.200.

On clothing allowances, VGs said present allowance per annum was only Rs.500, which they asserted could not manage to stitch their dresses.

Therefore, they appealed to chief minister to increase the same to Rs.1000. According to the signatories, the issues were deliberated at a meeting of the association held November 8 at Kohima.
