A High Powered Committee (HPC) has been constituted by the Nagaland government to examine the matter relating to fixation of maximum length of service for the state government employees. The HPC would comprise of the following officers: additional chief secretary (Home), Lalthara as chairman, principal secretary (P&AR), C.J. Ponraj as member secretary and three other members including additional chief secretary & development commissioner, Alemtemshi Jamir; principal secretary & FC, Toshi Aier and secretary (Law & Justice), K.N. Chishi. According to an official bulletin, the notification was issued by additional chief secretary, Nagaland, Lalthara and laid the terms and references of the HPC as under: to scrutinize the retirement profile of the government employees prepared by the P & AR department and make necessary recommendation regarding the fixation of maximum length of service of government employees and other service conditions etc; to examine the issues of doctoring of date of birth by the government employees and recommend measures to address the problems; review the recruitment system of Class-III & IV employees at all levels and recommend a streamlined system to effect recruitment/employment of qualified employees in future; introduction of any other measures to access employment opportunities of unemployed qualified youths within and outside the state. The Committee would submit its report and recommendations by the end of January 2009 for examination by the cabinet. It may be recalled, that following the state cabinet’s decision on increasing the superannuation of the government servants to 60, the NSF had strongly opposed it. The NSF has demanded that the determining factor be the length of service to 33 years and not age. Sources said the government was likely to table a bill in the March assembly session as assured by Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio to the NSF. It remains to be seen if the government bill would opt for 33 years or 35 years of service as the determining factor for retirement.
