The All Nagaland College Students’ Union (ANCSU) has once again reiterated that it stands firm on its earlier demand that the 110 sanctioned posts under the Higher Education department be recruited through the Nagaland Public Service Commission (NPSC).

Pointing out that the sanctioned posts were recommended after rationalisation by the department, ANCSU president Katho P Awomi and general secretary Vimeyiekho Vitso in a statement demanded that these posts be immediately sent to NPSC in toto for fair competition and recruitment. 
According to the duo, the delay in recruitment to these posts has resulted in “many unwanted situations” which has affected students. The ANCSU stated that having thoroughly understood the contract appointment matter, it demands that the State government not regularise contract lecturers under any circumstances. 
Acknowledging the service and contribution of various faculty, the union appealed to the State government to immediately remove the assistant professors appointed on contractual basis and who do not meet required qualification criterion as in the University Grant Commission (UGC) guideline and department service rules. 
It also urged the government to also ensure that those in service with required qualification enjoy maximum benefits as per the UGC rules and also asked the government to implement/maintain the “maximum UGC guideline and norms.”
Demanding for no reservation for the 110 sanctioned posts, the union said recruitment should be made purely on a merit basis. Thereafter, the contractual lecturers who do not clear NPSC should be given prior information before termination, it added. 
And should the need arise for contractual appointments even after recruitment for the 110 sanctioned posts though NPSC, ANSCU demanded that such appointments should be made entirely based on UGC guidelines. During such time of service, the contractual lecturers should also give maximum service to their respective colleges, the union pointed out adding that the department should recommend extension of contract service only on a need basis. 
The union further cautioned the authority concerned that paying no heed to its appeal could invite “ugly retaliation”, adding that no individual or party should risk defying its positive approach that was purely for the wellbeing of colleges.
