Public Service Aspirants of Nagaland (PSAN) and Nagaland Net Qualified Forum (NNQF) have sought immediate termination of 87 illegal appointments allegedly made in the Higher Education department and demanded filling up of vacancies through open advertisements. 

In a joint statement, the organisations said as per a reply received from the higher education department in response to their RTI application seeking details about appointment of assistant professors for various subjects, only 14 out of the total 101 appointed were through Nagaland Public Service Commission (NPSC). 

Further, 76 candidates were showed as appointed without posts, three attached against vacancies, two against study leave, two against non-sanctioned posts, three against promotion vacancies and one against resignation vacancy. 

Thus, with respect to the office memorandum of June 6, 2016 that banned all irregular and illegal appointments, there were 87 illegal appointments, the organisations pointed out.

PSAN and NNQF said the RTI reply also showed that 52 candidates did not have NET/SLET or PhD, which was compulsory for the post of assistant professor as per the UGC (Minimum Qualifications for Appointment of Teachers and other Academic Staff in Universities and Colleges and Measures for the Maintenance of standards in Higher Education 2010) Regulation, 2013.

Seeking the intervention of higher education minister on the matter, the organisations alleged that their open letter to the higher and technical education department on September 11 vis-à-vis submission of applications against the advertisement (no. NPSC-2/2018) with September 21 as last date went unheeded

NNQF and PSAN further urged the minister to requisition 68 newly-created posts (to be recruited in 2018-19) vide notification (HE/ESTT/2-6/207) and office memorandum (CAB 2/2013, SSL. No 5, dated 4th July 2018) to NPSC for advertisement at the earliest. They warned that failure to take immediate measures would force them to take up further action.
