The Core Committee on Rationalisation of Reservation Policy (CCoRoRP) has suggested redefining the reservation policy based on the “situational realities” of the state and submitted six-point charter for review of reservation policy to the government-constituted Review Committee on Job Reservation Policy in the state of Nagaland.

CCoRoRP comprising five tribal student bodies – All Sumi Students’ Union (SKK), Angami Students’ Union (ASU), Ao Students’ Conference (AKM), Lotha Students’ Union (LSU) and Rengma Students’ Union (RSU) – was formed in the year 2016 to study and address on the existing Reservation Policy in the State.

In a representation addressed to the chairperson of Review Committee on Job Reservation Policy, the CCoRoRP convenor N Ejanthung Ngullie and secretary Zakie Khate asserted that the Nagaland Reservation Policy (NRP), which was introduced on January 11, 1977 as a good law aimed at alleviating the ‘educated and economically backward section of the Naga society’, has now been implemented for more than four decades with little or no modifications by the Nagaland government.

CCoRoRP stated that NRP had been enacted with good intentions and it surely has benefitted the target section in the Naga society. 

However, the core committee maintained that even after more than forty years, the NRP was once again put forth among the Naga students for debate.

CCoRoRP, therefore, stated that a systematic and pragmatic approach to the issue was needed because it encompassed every aspect of the Naga society from the highest to the lowest, from the most urban to the most rural society. 

It suggested that a thorough systematic and academic study on how the Reservation Policy was contributing to the targeted people and areas in Nagaland should be undertaken at the earliest. 

“This can be done in an unbiased manner by the government in collaboration with various agencies/ tribal apex bodies for systematic collection of the actual data and further policy formulation by the government,” it stated.

Besides, CCoRoRP also submitted six-point charter, which included implementation of ‘creamy layer’ policy on reservation, pocket wise reservation, equal criteria on educational qualification for all jobs, category options for all competitive exams, cut off mark on reservation quota and time framed review of reservation policy.

Affirming that it was not against genuine reservation, the core committee, however, stated that it needed to be streamlined. 

CCoRoRP said that reservation policy should benefit those intended people all over Nagaland and once it has served its purpose there should be a time when the Nagaland Legislative Assembly should declare that the reservation policy was done with.
