With the signing of the MoU between the state chief secretary and office bearers of the Confederation of all Nagaland state services employees’ association (CANSSEA), the stalemate over the latter’s demand for implementation of the 6th RoP was resolved.
According to a joint statement issued by chief secretary Lalthara and CANSSEA president David Sema it was agreed that the government employees would be paid the revised pay from June1, 2008 notionally for fixation purpose only whereas actual cash benefit would be from April 1, 2010. CANSSEA had demanded the cut off be from January 1,2006.
The agreement came after a joint meeting held at the initiative of the state chief minister Neiphiu Rio in his office chamber Tuesday. The meeting was also attended by members of cabinet sub-committee and official committee and CANSSEA.
According to a MoU the additional arrear for one month would be paid in December 2010, after reviewing ARM position in November.
In view of the state government’s inability to provide additional arrears of one month totalling Rs.43 crore, it was decided that the state would make all out efforts to mobilize resource for the purpose by intensifying revenue collection drive.
On the issue of the implementation of the subsequent 7th RoP it was agreed that it would be improper to make any kind of commitment at this early stage. Hence, it was agreed that the issue would be dropped. However, it was agreed that views of CANSSEA would be considered as and when the issue of 7th RoP was taken.
It was also decided that anomalies, if any, in 6th RoP would be examined by the anomalies committee and that government would take necessary action based on its recommendations.
It was also explained to CANSSEA the difficult financial position with regard to the normative approach adopted by the 13th Finance Commission in assessing the state’s revenue expenditure.
It was also clarified that even though the government wanted to offer maximum benefits to its employees, it was not in a position due to non availability of resource.
The agrement was signed after considering all the stated facts.
Meanwhile, the CANSSEA president Dr. David Sema and general secretary Vekho Veroh, in a separate note, have expressed gratitude particularly to state chief minister Neiphiu Rio and state minister and also convener of cabinet sub-committee Dr. Shurhozelie Liezhietsu, for settling the matter amicably.
