Imphal: The Joint Committee of the Teachers Association (TA), JNIMS, the Trained Nurses Association (TNA), JNIMS and the Association of Non-Teaching Staff, JNIMS, has demanded implementation of 7th ROP recommendation in JNIMS with notional effect from January 1, 2016, and implementation with effect from April 1, 2019, and payment in cash in salary from April 1, 2020, a statement by the Teachers’ Association said here on Saturday.
In case of failure to meet their demands, the three associations have threatened to resign from JNIMS and have sought forgiveness from the public in advance for the inconvenience caused by their action.
The press noted stated that the various associations of JNIMS have been demdanding implantation of 7th ROP recommendation for a quite long time, as the institution is the State Government’s only Teaching Medical Institution.
On December 18, 2020, the Chief Secretary, Government of Manipur, assured to implement it in JNIMS within 100 days following which the three associations withdrew all forms of agitation in the institute. But nothing materialised.
Hence, the Teachers’ Association in its General Body Meeting held on March 25, 2021, took a decision of cancelling all academic activities in the institute during the period March 29 to April 4, 2021.
On March 25, 2021, the three associations again jointly sat with the state Chief Secretary, in which the top government official assured that the issue will be put up as one of the cabinet agendas which was to be held the next day. Yet, the matter was not given due consideration by the state cabinet, it further added.
