Village Guard Organisation (VGO) of Tuensang, Mon, Longleng, Kiphire and Phek have requested the government to abolish appointment of NVG adding that appointment of NVG officials to all higher ranks and files was the most discouraging factor. A memorandum addressed to the chief minister, VGO of five districts highlighted that VG personnel were appointed as constables and retired as constable without any promotion for which it had sought intervention of chief minister to stop political involvement and consider for promotion according to seniority list from Lance Naik to Deputy Commandant.
On enhancement of salaries, the VGO L. Mosha- Tuensang; N. Manhoa-Mon; Tok Long- Longleng; Jonlet- Phek and Tsasieto- Kiphire have stated that VG were appointed in the eastern part of Nagaland to protect and guard ancestral land village and boundaries and its jurisdiction. Moreover, services of village guards were also deputed in the government duties during any national days for parade and guard of honour, reception of VVIP Visit, ROP duties etc thus nature of the duties of village guards personals were almost same to that of any other government who were handsomely paid in the state.
VGO also pointed put that present VG’s were paid only 500 rupees, per month which created a problem to manage the family and needed immediate attention for enhancement of VG pay at least up to Rs. 2000/- (two thousand) pm, and Rs.100 as ration allowance.
