Observing the fraudulences being practised by some officials of the education department, principal secretary Menukhol John alleged that some officials are still preparing pay bills and slips of employees who have already retired or even expired.

He made this remark while addressing a one-day meeting of district educational officers (DEOs), assistant district education officers (ADEOs) and sub-divisional education officers (SDEOs) held at Secretariat Conference Hall here on Friday for strengthening the department.

Cautioning strongly against the “unethical practice” by some officials, John hoped that this will not continue, even as he asked them to do away with all corrupt activities once and for all. He reminded them that they are employed in one of the most crucial departments for development of human resources.

While questioning the officials present as to how salaries can be drawn fraudulently, the principal secretary said the department is trying its best to find ways to solve the problems and issues that the department is confronted with constantly.

He also expressed concern over the poor performance of government colleges in the State and lamented that the performance index of the State has not improved over the years. 

John remarked “We are very good in receiving funds and spending them, but when it comes to submission of monthly expense report, we are very weak.” 

He expressed astonishment that some officials are even deducting teachers’ salary for attending meetings at the directorate that, according to him, “demeans” the office itself.

Warning officials against extending contracts of ad hoc employees despite there being no extension in their service terms, he said, if any such instances come up in the future, the department will be compelled to deduct from the particular school or office to pay for the expenses incurred for the extended months.

Expressing his surprise over redeployment of employees without permission of the directorate, John warned that strict action will be taken against them.

On the Mid Day Meal (MDM) scheme, he maintained that Nagaland was the worst performing State in the country in uploading reports on the Monitoring Automatic System (MAS), and pointed out that Kiphire and Zunheboto are the worst performers.

With the Central government scrapping the scheme for MDM kitchen, he suggested setting up local granaries with the help of the locals and asked the DEOs to ponder upon.

The principal secretary also informed the officials that, beginning from Mon, he will be touring all districts to inspect the challenges and the department’s activities.

Additional director Razouseyi Vese chaired the event and also delivered the welcome address, even as a power point presentation on government school reports from each district was also given during the meeting. It was also informed that the meetings will be held quarterly.
