State cabinet has decided to institute an official committee to study into the details on the superannuation issue, including the number of government servants likely to be affected if the length of service was implemented. According to official sources, the cabinet in a meeting held Monday afternoon deliberated on the issue of superannuation and the subsequent demand made by the Naga Students’ Federation (NSF). Sources said the cabinet reiterated its commitment to take up the matter in the court of law. At the same time, it also decided to constitute an official committee to go for detail study to find out the fact and figures including the number of people likely to be affected if the length of service was implemented. The committee has been directed to finish the task by January next and submit the same to the cabinet by February. The cabinet is also learnt to have approved the setting up of separate full fledged engineering cell in the state Urban Development Department. It also approved the recognition of five new villages out of the total six villages. It may be mentioned earlier, the NSF had called of its agitation on November 28 last following a written assurance from the chief minister to introduce a bill in the next session of State assembly making legal provision for fixing the maximum length of service for the state government employees. The Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) has suspended its ongoing agitation and also called off the proposed 12-hour state-wide bandh on December 1. “I write this to assure the NSF that State Government will introduce a bill in the next session of the Nagaland Legislative Assembly of Nagaland to make legal provision for fixing the maximum length of service for the State government employees,” the chief minister said in his written assurance.
