With many lapses in not appointing a new chairman and members to the Nagaland Public Service Commission (NPSC), the Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) on Tuesday urged the Nagaland government to ensure that appointments to the vacant posts are filled at the earliest.
When contacted, a source informed this correspondent that the NSF has termed the functioning of the NPSC as “paralyzed” after its last chairman retired on November 20 last year while three of its other members superannuated thereafter.
However, it is said that the Nagaland government was yet to announce the replacements for which the non-appointment of the members has been the “primary reason” in delaying the conduct of the examinations to different posts falling within the purview of the NPSC.
According to a press statement jointly issued by NSF vice president Atokiho Sumi, and secretary Social and Culture, Benjong Longchar, the NPSC is yet to declare the results of the many competitive examinations conducted by it despite the lapse of many months including the Technical NPSC (combined Technical Service Exam) advertisement dated 17,02, 2021, Examination date Sept 25 to October 5, 2021
NPSC (Civil service exam), Advertisement dated October 27, 2021, Examination dated November 27, 2021, NPSC (combined education services exam) Advertisement dated November 13, 2019 re-advertized on January 27, 2021, Date of exam August 14, 2021 to August 26, 2021.
In this regard, the NSF in the light of the facts presented has appealed to the Nagaland government to ensure that a new NPSC chairman and members be appointed after following due procedures and also to take steps to ensure that all the pending results are declared without further delay.
The NSF has also noted that it shall continue to remain “watchful and mindful” of the action being initiated by the Nagaland government pertaining to the appeals made and any attempt to undermine the interest of the students and the youth community shall be met with “befitting response” from its ends.
Meanwhile, talking to this Correspondent, NSF President, Kegwayhun Tep, said that it has been more than three months that the NPSC chairman retired and that the Commission cannot function without chairman and members. And wherein it was informed to the federation that declaration of results has been delayed as the NPSC does not have a chairman and its members without whom it would be difficult to declare the results.
