Joint Associations Forum (JAF) comprising of Nagaland Directorate Ministerial Service Association (NDMSA), All Nagaland District Ministerial Service Association (ANDMSA), Trained Nurses Association of India-Nagaland Branch (TNAI) and Prison Service Association Nagaland announced to launch phase wise democratic agitations, for the non implementation of the ROP Pay Anomalies Committee (PAC) recommendation, starting from November 20 if their demand was not met before the due course of time. 

According to JAF convenor, M. Renthungo Tungoe and co-convenor, V. Peter Rutsa, the forum took this decision at the meeting of the coordinating body held on November 14 at Ura Hotel, Kohima for non implementation of the ROP Pay Anomalies Committee (PAC) recommendation by the state government.

JAF said the aggrieved four associations decided to take a joint venture to pursue the matter and requested the state government to implement the recommendation in letter and spirit without any discrimination.

While pointing out that the current issue was related to pay level enhancement of specific categories of employees under the four associations, JAF said they deserved better perks and allowances commensurating their duties and responsibilities.

JAF further reminded  that the associations had submitted individual representations expressing their grievances and claims of anomalies to the 2017 ROP PAC on invitation, and accordingly the PAC in their report dated 21.05.2018 had recommended higher pay level of specific employees under the aggrieved associations. 

However, JAF said the government failed to implement/approve the recommendation for no valid and justifiable reason. 

A joint representation was submitted to government on September 12, 2019 demanding implementation of the recommendation. However, JAF said there was no positive response even after a lapse of over 45. 

In this regard an ultimatum was served on the government on October 30, 2019 for which the dateline ended on November 14. In this regard the JAF said it was compelled to launch phase-wise agitation.

In the first phase, members of JAF will be wearing black badges and warned that the agitation will be intensified if the demand was not met. 

In this regard, JAF has directed all its constituent members to be prepared for the proposed agitation and take up the matter seriously. All constituent associations have also been directed to constitute action committee to monitor and curb any untoward incident during the democratic form of agitation.

Meanwhile, JAF has sought the support and cooperation of the AHoDs, HoDs and controlling officers and to understand their genuine case.
