Govt. to enforce ‘no work, no pay’

Taking note of certain sections of state employees intending to go on agitation, in the form of mass casual leave, instead of attending to their assigned duties, the state government today said provision in FR 17 (1), which enunciates the principle of ‘no work no pay’, would be invoked in all cases in all government offices where government employees do not perform their duties or remain absent from their duties without prior approval and sanction of the appropriate authority.
An office memorandum issued May 20 by state chief secretary Lalthara has requested all heads of administrative departments and heads of departments to bring office memorandum to all government servants under their control for strict compliance.
It has also directed all AHoDs and HoDs not to sanction any kind of leave, including mass casual leave, which were applied by employees as part of the said agitation programme.
Meanwhile, the Confederation of All Nagaland State Services Employees’ Association (CANSSEA) today informed all responsible to remain steadfast and united and make the upcoming phase of agitation a success so that authority would realize seriousness of its “rightful demand” no matter what government’s order might announce.
According to CANSSEA president Dr. K. David Sema and general secretary Vekho Vero, its six representatives, on government’s invitation, today met additional chief secretary & development commissioner Alemtemshi.
The signatories said two-hour long meeting, chaired by Alemtemshi, explained at length about government’s inability to pay arrears to state employees as per their demand, as government was without any resources. The panel also reportedly appealed CANSSEA to defer its programme of agitation for the moment.
CANSSEA delegates, however, reiterated that its demand of 6th ROP in toto was “un-negotiable demand.”
Pointing out that enough time was given to government but due to “callousness” of the authority they were left with no option but to launch three- day mass casual leave,” the association president and general secretary said: “even today we are getting new groups of support behind our struggle and responses of preparedness for mass casual leave across the state are pouring in from all districts and associations.”
It has also informed divisional/sub divisional units to keep vigil over period of casual leave being observed by all the employees and see that its order was followed to the fullest.
The association yesterday had announced that its three-day mass casual leave would begin May 24. It, however, had stated that services recognized as “essential services” would be exempted from the purview of the protest.
