Nagaland government has cleared the creation of over 100 assistant professors post in various subjects, but certain formalities are still under process, this was stated by parliamentary secretary for higher education, Deo Nukhu.

Admitting that most of the colleges in Nagaland did not have enough teachers, Nukhu said, “Department had submitted proposal for creation of posts of teachers in various subjects, but the state government on various occasions had turned down owing to fund constrains.”

He further added with the rationalization of teacher posts, government had agreed to create more than 100 posts of teachers, “Replying to the appeal made by ENCSU for posting a permanent college principal at Yingli College, Longleng, we have decided that the college principal at Longleng would be replaced soon.”

Asserting that the department has special consideration for interior and backward districts, “We have proposed a model degree college, a science college – at Wakching, under Mon district.”

On ENCSU’s accusation of non-appointment of driver for college bus in Kiphiri district, Nukhu informed that the department had already sanctioned for purchase of bus for Kiphiri but was not able to deliver the bus as there was no drive, “Besides, an emergency arrangement have been initiated for appointment of driver and conductor on fixed pay on contingency basis, which was later turned down.

Nukhu further express displeasure over poor allotment of funds to the department, “Centre has its policy to allot 5% of the state total budget to higher education department. However, during 2016-17, only 0.06% was allotted making it difficult to manage the department.”
