Following the introduction of Nagaland Retirement from Public Employment (Second Amendment) Bill 2009 in the Assembly July 7, the government Wednesday detailed several decisions deliberated by Cabinet regarding the bill. Cabinet Secretariat said effective date of the Act could be deferred by around 2-3 months to let departments prepare for issuing retirement orders. It said the bill would be effective from the date to be notified separately by the government. The Cabinet Secretariat said to allow relaxation of qualifying years for officiating promotion to next higher grade, up to minimum one year in each grade, all department should submit proposal to P&AR department for consideration of promotion under this special dispensation. If necessary, some posts could be downgraded to suitable levels to enable better utilization of cadre posts, with prior approval of CSB. Cabinet Secretariat also directed all departments to complete special scrutiny of all service records and service books of government employees within three months. It cautioned that those who are found to have tempered with their age or date of entry into service would be given option of voluntary retirement or face disciplinary proceedings and criminal prosecution, which could entail forfeiture of all pension benefits, if found guilty.
