National Health Mission Employees Association (NEAN) has threatened to undertake “total cease work (No Pay No Work)” if the state government failed to release three months’ pending salary from December 2019 to February 2020 on or before March 5, 2020. 

In a press release, NEAN president Dr. Shasinlo Magh and general secretary Kewetso Kenye said the association took the decision at an executive meeting held in Dimapur on February 23, regarding non-release of NHM fund resulting in pending salary. NEAN claimed that the state received the first installment from Ministry of Health and Family Welfare on December 24, 2019, for the Financial Year 2019-20, but till date it was lying at the state treasury.

NEAN pointed out that as per letter dated June 7, 2016 from addl. secretary & mission director, NHM to the chief secretary and also letter from director (Finance-NHM) November 2017 to the principal secretary and mission director directed that the funds from the state treasury to state health society (NHM) account must be transferred within 15 days of receipt of funds from Centre. 

Further, NEAN said that it had on September 10, 2018 submitted representation to the state chief secretary cum chairman, governing body, state health society, NHM for timely release of fund from state treasury to NHM within 15 days. However, the association lamented that the same trend of delayed fund flow has been observed till date. It said the delay adversely had impacted on the performance of NHM programmes and activities, which in turn has affected the output leading to disincentives, as well, from the Centre. Therefore, NEAN appealed to the state government to release the pending fund as stated.

It also urged that funds should be reserved for remuneration component, at least for a minimum of three months, as and when fund was received for the welfare of the employees so they get their due salary on time. According to NEAN, the delay in release of State Share (10%) has also affected the timely tranche release of fund from Centre to the state. As regards, the association has appealed to the state government to adhere to the financial norms as mandated by Centre for the smooth functioning and positive outcome of the programme.
