Nagaland government clarifies on shifting of DC office, puts its earlier order on hold
Dimapur, Oct. 6 (EMN): Amid protests and concerns expressed by various Dimapur-based civil society organisations, the government of Nagaland has decided to put its recent order for ‘shifting of branches/cells to new Deputy Commissioner’s Office Complex, Chümoukedima’ on hold.
The Home department informed this in a press release on Wednesday.
Clarifying the issue related to the posting of ADC at Chümoukedima, the department stated that it was initially asked to work out the phasing schedules for the shifting of the DC office and other offices after the Cabinet decided to shift it to the new complex at its meeting on March 11 this year.
“However, on account of the reservations expressed from various quarters, the Cabinet had decided in its Meeting held on 10th August, 2021 to post an ADC, EAC and Sub-Treasury Office at the new Deputy Commissioner Office Complex, Chümoukedima with a view to provide greater convenience to the public and with a view to decongest the Deputy Commissioner Office, Dimapur.
“Accordingly, an additional officer was posted as ADC to function from the new Deputy Commissioner Office Complex Chümoukedima, and EAC Seithekima was transferred and entrusted with additional responsibility of assisting ADC at Chümoukedima,” it stated.
The department on to say that the Government has decided to put its earlier instructions on hold.
