Can’t say roster system should be from retrospective or prospective effect: Ampareen

Shillong, March 29: Law Minister Ampareen Lyngdoh on Wednesday refused to comment on whether the roster system should be implemented from retrospective or prospective effect.

She met the members of HYC , officials of law and personnel departments to discuss the matter.


According to Ampareen, a diligent decision will be taken to address the issues arising out of the roster system after having discussion with Chief Minister and cabinet colleagues.

The minister said that the government cannot review the roster system as it is mandated by law but the government is ready to address the problems arising out of it.

HYC general secretary Roy Kupar Synrem said that the organisation wanted roster system to be implemented with prospective effect.

He pointed out that several departments do not have records from 1972.

HYC president Robertjune Kharjahrin said the state government should rectify the Office Memorandum (OM) which stated that the reservation roster should be prepared retrospectively.

“It is a settled law that any notification in order to have retrospective effect has to be authorised by a statute and in our opinion the Office Memorandum dated May 10, 2022 has no statute which authorised to prepare the reservation roster to be effective retrospectively. Hence, it is illegal and the government must rectify it at the earliest,” he said.
