CTAN serves deadline to terminate ‘illegal’ appts

Combined Technical Association of Nagaland (CTAN), while issuing a final reminder to soil and water conservation department, demanded immediate termination of two Junior Soil Conservation Officers (JSCO) on or before March 30 and make way for educated youths, who believed in the spirit of competition through free and fair examination.
In a press note, CTAN through its media cell alleged that the two JSCOs were “illegally” appointed in the scale pay of PB-2 Rs 9300-34800/ and Grade pay Rs 4400/-P.M under soil and water conservation department and had been occupying the posts since June 3, 2016 till date.
It said many representations were submitted to stop the regularization process of the two posts, which was clearly under the preview of NPSC having a grade pay more than 2800. CTAN also pointed out that there were thousands of professional graduates in forestry, agricultural engineering, agriculture science and horticulture who had been passionately waiting for the posts to be advertised. CTAN said that two “illegal appointments” had clearly violated the P&AR rule/notification.
Despite several appeals and representation, CTAN alleged that the duo went on perusing political support from the concerned minister, and even to the extent of allegedly getting a recommendation from the chief minister.
Henceforth, CTAN said it resolved to prevent any such illegal activities, irrespective of any department and cautioned that failure to act on or before March 30 would compel all its associates (10 technical associations) to take up every necessary measure to bring justice for the aspirants.
