Naga Students’ Federation on doctors’ superannuation age issue, medical colleges in Nagaland
Dimapur, April 11 (EMN): The Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) on Monday adopted several resolutions in connection with the superannuation age of medical doctors and upcoming medical colleges in Nagaland at the emergency presidential council meeting held in Kohima.
An update from the NSF media cell informed that the house unanimously adopted a four-point resolution after a threadbare deliberation on the issue.
“The house resolved to demand the government of Nagaland to maintain status quo with regard to the superannuation age of medical doctors in the state until a comprehensive review of the existing superannuation policy governing the state government employees is carried out,” read the resolution.
It had decided to pressure the state government for creation of more posts in the medical department as well as requisition the existing vacancies in the department to NPSC for immediate recruitment.
Dismayed over the sluggish progress of the ongoing works of the two upcoming medical colleges in the state – in Kohima and Mon – the house resolved to demand the government to make the two institutions functional at the earliest.
The house also resolved to ensure strict implementation of the ‘bond agreement’ signed by students, who availed the seat under state quota, to serve the state and its people for a specific period of time after completion of their studies.
The update went on to say that the house appreciated the executive council for convening the seniors’ consultative meeting on March 25 following the federal assembly’s endorsement for wider consultation with the NSF seniors and federating units in connection with the superannuation age of medical doctors.
