CTAN threatens movement against Forest Dept

Dimapur, January 17: The Combined Technical Association of Nagaland (CTAN) has threatened to adopt “movements” against the Department of Chief Conservator of Forests and Head of Forest Force for the department’s failure of terminate 5 Forester-1 appointed illegally between 23/06/2017 to 18/08/2018.
In a press release, CTAN said following an RTI report, it had submitted appeal letter dated 03/12/2019 for immediate termination of the 5 Forester-1 within the next 20 working days and to advertise all the posts of Forester-1 lying vacant (total of 10 posts). It reminded that the aspirants have been patient for too long and therefore will no more allow any such illegal appointments without advertisement from now on.
“With the expiry of time frame given CTAN shall react and be compelled in adopting movements against the department, fighting for the rights of educated unemployed,” it warned.
On its demand for nullifying the regularisation process of 2
contract appointees in the capacity of JSCO, jointly submitted by Associations of FGAN, ASAN, AGEGAN and CTAN, the release claimed that the Directorate of Soil and Water Conservation is still in its process of regularising the 2 illegal appointees, “which is a clear sign of ignorance to the various representations being made and an effort to suppress the voice of justice and transparency.”
CTAN informed that the 2 JSCO posts have already been requisitioned to NPSC and for which written examinations have been conducted (NPSC/CTE/2018). It appealed to the department not to kill the spirit of competition among Naga youths and play with the future of those candidates who are anxiously waiting for written results. “Withdrawal of the 2 posts sent to NPSC and regularising those illegal appointees will only shatter dreams of thousand aspirants,” it said and demanded immediate action against the 2 contract JSCO.
Department of Power
With regard to the Power Department circular dated 14/01/20 inviting candidates for deputation to one post of Electrical Inspector under Chief Electrical Inspectorate stating “It is advertised against the direct recruitment quota of 60% of the Nagaland Engineering Service Rule 2012,” the CTAN requested the department not to misinterpret the lines in the NSER. It clarified that the 60% direct recruitment means through NPSC as per 60:40 ratio (NESR) and not deputation at all.
In this regard, CTAN appealed to the department to acknowledge the requisition letter sent for the said post to NPSC and not to push for deputation, giving a way for unemployed engineers.
The CTAN also appealed to the Department of Industries & Commerce to cancel the advertisement No. I&C/ESTT-7/12/ dated 4th January 2020 for 1 post of shift in-charge and requisition it to NPSC at earliest, as the said post has a grade pay which comes under the preview of NPSC and not departmental exam.
