Supreme Court of India Tuesday heard the Special Leave Petition filed by Nagaland Senior Government Employees Welfare Association (NSGEWA) and later in an interim order has directed the state government not to issue any further order until the next hearing scheduled for Friday. According to sources, on the first day of the hearing the Supreme Court gave a four minute to the counsel of the petitioner to present its submission. Later, the court in its interim asked the respondent – state government not to issue any further order in connection with the case until further order. In a statement, the NSGEWA chairman Roko Pier informed that “all the affected employees may attend respective office or department daily till further order from the Hon’ble Supreme Court.” NSF hails court verdict Describing the Court verdict in a favour of Retirement Act as historic landmark achievement to its long standing issue, the Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) Tuesday said its demand and aspiration representing the voice of younger generation has finally come into reality. Considering the multiplying educated unemployed youth of the state, the federation president Mutsikhoyo Yhobu and general secretary O Wati Jamir, in a joint press statement, reiterated that above the pay scale of Rs. 4125 should be requisite through NPSC and below that pay scale the government should introduce departmental examination in order to avoid “backdoor appointments.” The federation also appealed that government retired employees should never be recruited as consultant in the same department where the responsible employees relaxed. Further assuring its “fullest cooperation”, the NSF expressed confidence that state government would judiciously exercise its authority in implementation process. Meanwhile, the federation has expressed gratitude to all its senior leaders, federating units, subordinate bodies, mass based civil societies and the public who stood besides NSF in the process of addressing the issue. It has also lauded Nagaland chief minister, all the elected members of legislative assembly, advocate general, additional advocate general and junior judges of the state for successfully introducing the length of the service for the government employees of the state.
