Stating that there would be some dislocations and gaps of administrative and functional structures in all the departments in implementing the Nagaland Retirement from Public Employment (Second Amendment) Act, 2009, the state department of personnel and administrative reforms (P&AR) have requested all departments to submit a list of numerous information as per the sample formats within 5 (five) days and before July 24. The P & AR in an office memorandum stated that the state government had taken a decision that all persons holding public employment under the state Government shall retire on the last day of the month on attaining the age of 60 years or in which he/she completes 35 years of public employment, whichever is earlier. According to DIPR, all the departments have been asked to furnish its list of employees who would have completed 35 years of service by September 31, 2009as well as another list of employees, who would have completed 35 years of service by December 31, 2009. Further, all departments have been directed to carry out special scrutiny of all service records and service books of government employees under them which should be completed within 3(three) months from the sate of issue of the office memorandum. It stated that those who were found to have tampered with their age or date of entry into service, should be given the option of going for voluntary retirement, or face disciplinary proceedings and criminal prosecution in a Court of Law, which might entail forfeiture of all pension benefits, if found guilty. Stating that the department will have to carry out some advance exercises in order to fill up the vacancies, the P&AR said that the government would also allow relaxation of the qualifying years for officiating promotion to the next higher grade up to minimum of 1 (one) year in each grade, wherever there were vital gaps in the hierarchy of certain departments as a result of the implementation of this Act. For this, all Departments should submit proposals to the P&AR department for consideration of promotion under this special dispensation, to be put up to the Civil Services Board (CSB). However, for employees of the Police and Forest Departments, the proposals might be directly put up by the concerned departments to Police Establishment Board and Forest Establishment Boards respectively instead of CSB, the office memorandum stated. It further stated that if and when necessity arises, some posts might be downgraded to suitable levels to enable better utilization of cadre posts, with prior approval of CSB, to be obtained through P&AR department. Meanwhile, a sample format for issue of retirement orders in respect of those affected by the Act would be worked out by P&AR, and circulated to all departments, so that retirement orders could be issued simultaneously and in the same format once the date of implementation of the Act was decided by the government. The Nagaland Retirement from Public Employment (Second Amendment) Act, 2009 was passed on July 10 in the State Assembly.
