This is in partial modification of Cabinet Secretariat Notification dated 23rd July, 2019, under the provisions of Rule 5(1) of the Rules of Executive Business of the Government of Nagaland, DIPR said.

This arrangement would help utilize the vast and practical experience of the Member of Nagaland Legislative Assembly for the benefit of public at large, it said.

The Advisor will render his advise on matters that are referred to them by the concerned Department for their views/suggestions before the issue is put up to the concerned Minister in charge for decision and the Advisor will not be eligible for any pay, salary, emoluments, remuneration or any perks/advantages of any kind, from the Government of Nagaland other than what is normally admissible to them as members of Nagaland Legislative Assembly through the Assembly Secretariat.
