Aizawl, Jun 2 (UNI) A Cabinet meeting, chaired by Chief Minister Zoramthanga, has decided not to create any new district.
The Cabinet meeting, after deliberately discussing and viewing from different angles the demands for Hnahthial, Khawzawl, Saitual districts and trifurcation of the existing Lunglei district, found it not feasible to create any new district as of now, official sources said here today.
The Cabinet meeting, which started on Friday, resumed today and finally concluded this afternoon.
The meeting also discussed the demands for regularisation of work-charged, contractual and muster roll employees under different departments.
The Cabinet, as per the Work Charged Regularisation Scheme 2000, agreed to regularise about 60 work-charged/muster roll workers.
However, there were more than 1,000 such workers in power, public health engineer and public works departments, sources said.
The rest of them will avail improved service conditions like they will be entitled to medical reimbursement, GPF subscription, leave, promotion and different allowances, sources added.
While agreeing to make regularisation scheme for contract basis employees in different departments, the Cabinet decided that the Centrally-sponsored ''Operation Blackboard'' teachers remained contractual.
