All Nagaland College Students’ Union (ANCSU) has put forth several charter of demands before the state government including the demand to make alternative arrangement to disburse the Post Matric Scholarship (PMS) to Schedule Tribe students of Nagaland 
The demands were submitted to the chief minister, T.R. Zeliang, said ANCSU vice president and chairman grievances committee, Benjong Longchar at a press conference on Tuesday. ANCSU said it was hopeful for a positive response and immediate attention before the Winter Assembly session. ANCSU warned that the union would be compelled to take its own course of action until justice was restored.
Longchar said that the chief minister himself was well aware that the Ministry of Tribal Affairs was yet to sanction the 2nd and final installment of the PMS for the year 2016-17. However, he said the students community were facing untold hardship due to the in ordinate delay of disbursing scholarship. 
ANCSU president, Katho P Awomi blamed the concerned department for the delay in disbursing the second sanction. 
ANCSU officials said that the union was not convinced with the assurance made by the state government on December 7 that the latter was making all efforts to release of the remaining amount before Christmas to avoid further misunderstandings.
ANCSU has urged upon the state government to set up a separate cell/nodal department for implementing/initiating all the different scholarship schemes smoothly. 
ANCSU also demanded that the government revoke the October 26, 2017 P&AR office memorandum and strongly opposed filling up class-III non-gazetted posts through departmental recruitment board and scrapping away from the purview of NPSC. ANCSU said without revoking the OM, it would deprive the rights of the public service aspirants and encourage backdoor appointments.
Pointing out another wrong decision of the state government, ANCSU opposed the August 11, 2016 P&AR O.M for regularizing government employees appointed on contract basis under different departments with completion of three years in service. ANCSU leaders said backdoor appointments were directly or indirectly depriving the deserving candidates. ANCSU president questioned that silence of the chief minister over such issues, particularly on scholarship matter and the advisor Higher Education for not addressing the genuine issue of the student community.
