Dimapur, Feb. 22 (EMN): The All Nagaland Hindi Teachers’ Union (ANHTU) Wokha unit has accused the state government of playing a delay tactic in releasing their salaries by terming them ‘unqualified and Centrally Sponsored Scheme (CSC) employees’.

The union said in a statement that they were recruited after taking written and oral examinations as well as meeting the eligibility criteria mentioned in the government’s notification. It also claimed that they were recruited ‘as regular employees and not under CSC’.

The ANHTU Wokha unit went on to say that the NCTE should not be used as an excuse to delay the release of salary as the recruitment was done before it was adopted and with prior knowledge of the state education department and the recruiting board.

‘It is to be noted that the state government had already given a five years relaxation period (2022-2027) for the untrained Hindi teachers to undergo training and fulfill the NCTE criteria. Therefore the ANHTU Wokha Unit call for serially enrolment of Hindi teachers to go for teachers training and fulfill the NCTE criteria within the stipulated years as many had applied many times but not getting chance due to favoritism and nepotism,’ read the press release.

The union also sought immediate clarification from the advisor of School Education “for the damage he has done to the entire Hindi Teachers of Nagaland”.

It went on to say that the Hindi teachers had been facing inconvenience due to delay in payment of salaries right from the start, despite performing their duties diligently regardless of the injustice meted out to them by the government.
