All Nagaland School Teachers’ Association (ANSTA) has urged the state government to release the sixth RoP on par with the sixth Central Revision of Pay (RoP) structure. ANSTA president Kepelhoutou Chüsi and treasurer Ponchulo Wanth in a statement stated that one of the main structure of RoP – Assured Career Progression (ACP) scheme – continued to be excluded in the subsequent publications of pay fitment committee reports. Pointing out that now as per sixth Central RoP, ACP Scheme has been made more attractive providing three time up-gradation, the association cautioned to boycott classes if ACP Scheme was not given on par with the sixth Central RoP. In connection with this, the ANSTA has directed all district units and sub units to be “well prepared” to face such move. Quoting from their “reliable source”, the ANSTA also stated that government was attempting to do away with leave encashment. “If leave encashment practice is abolished, we foresee through the Naga nature a functional paralysis in its public offices by now,” the signatories stated. The ANSTA leaders said that government should anticipate the impact before such a change of practice was effected. The teachers’ association also asserted that it would “never” allow any person, except school education cadre, to be absorbed into teachers’ department. Further, the ANSTA stated that if the present move to absorb a medical cadre was considered, “government would be doing so to disturb 17000 teachers for the interest on individual which will in turn hamper the school functioning.”
