Dimapur, Oct. 3 (EMN): The department of Personnel and Administrative Reforms (P&AR) has cautioned government departments against violating stading appointment police and procedures as stated by the government.

The department will not register any appointments that are made without observing the due process and the Finance department shall not grant fund provisions on salaries against the department during the Revised Estimate, the establishments are cautioned.

The government’s publicity agency the department of Information and Public Relations (IPR) gave updates to the media on Thursday informing about the procedures for appointment.

The P & AR department, through an office memorandum that was issued by Commissioner-Secretary Dinesh Kumar, reiterated standing appointment policies of the Nagaland state government.

“It has come to the notice of the government that some departments are still resorting to exigency appointments for eg. Mali, Chowkidar, Peon on contingency basis which are untenable as the normal office can function even without the said staff,” the notice stated.

“Such contingency appointments, without publicly inviting applications, whether on regular basis, ad-hoc, fixed, casual or work-charged are irregular and illegal.”

No appointment of any sort without the warrant of sanctioned or vacancy posts shall be made and appointment on contract basis is banned as stated by the P&AR department’s memorandums, the IPR stated.

“In view of the circumstances stated above, the proposals for any new/fresh appointments by any departments for every category of post may be submitted to the administrative heads of department for prior approval for due process of recruitment by the NPSC/Departmental Recruitment Board (DRB),” the P & AR stated.

The administrative head shall be responsible to verify the availability of sanctioned posts and duly authenticate each post vacancy against the unique employee code generated by the Personal Information Management System (PIMS) or the post creation order in case of new post.

“Any appointment order issued without following the due process and without the unique employee code from PIMS shall be considered invalid, null and void,” the establishment stated.

“Hence, the PIMS cell P&AR department shall not register any appointments made without observing the due process as laid down and the Finance department shall not grant fund provision on salaries head against the particular department during the revised estimate.”
