DIMAPUR, MARCH 10: The Combined Technical Association of Nagaland (CTAN) has demanded immediate termination of two Junior Soil Conservation Officers (JSCO) in the Soil and Water Conservation Department, who, it alleged, were “illegal appointments”.
In a press release issued on Thursday, the Association gave the Department till March 30 to terminate the two officers who have been occupying the posts since June 3, 2016.
“Many representations have been submitted in writing to stop the regularisation process of the two posts which is clearly under the preview of NPSC having a grade pay more than 2800. There are many professional graduates in Forestry, Agricultural Engineering, Agriculture Science and Horticulture who are passionately waiting for the posts to be advertised.
“The two illegal appointments are clearly violating the PSAR rule/notification. In spite of many appeals and representations, the two went on pursuing political support from the concerned Minister, and even to the extent of getting a recommendation from the Chief Minister on February 23, 2022”, the Association alleged.
Upon expiry of the deadline, CTAN and all its associates (10 TRechnical Associations) will take up every necessary measure to bring justice for the aspirants in Nagaland, it stated.
