Educated Unemployed Union Nagaland (EUUN) has alleged the state government of violating Employment Exchange (Compulsory Notification of vacancies) Act 1959 which was enacted by the parliament five decades ago.
EUUN president Achilo Thong and general secretary Ezanbemo Erui in a representation to the chief secretary said violation of the Act led to deprivation of rightful opportunity and denial of right of life with basic human necessities to deserving youth.
EUUN highlighted that as per the Act, “after the commencement of the Act in any state or area, the employer in every establishment in public sector in the state or area shall, before filling up vacancies in any employment in that establishment, notify that vacancy to such employment exchanges as may be prescribed”.
The Act also states that “manner in which the vacancies referred to in sub-section shall be notified by employment exchanges and the particulars or the employment in which such vacancies have occurred or about to occur shall be such as may be prescribed”. EUUN in this regard urged the state government to stop filling up vacancies of jobs in the public sector which was in violation of the Act and implement the Act in the public interest.
