A meeting was held today with the Cabinet Secretary, Government of India, wherein myself as well as Com. M. Raghavaiah were present.
We explained him about various issues of the Central Government Employees pending at the government level. The main issues were NPS, Minimum Wage and Fitment Formula, Allowances, Pension and Very Good Benchmark, etc. etc.
The Cabinet Secretary informed us that, Pension issues have already been referred to the Cabinet, and the report of the Committee on Allowances is likely to be submitted in the next month. So far as issue of NPS is concerned, he has already directed the committee to hold a meeting with the Staff Side, which has already been fixed for 20th January 2017. The issue of Minimum Wage and Fitment Formula is also being vigorously pursued by the government.

He also advised us to have patience for some time and given us an assurance that he would try to get resolved pending issues of the Central Government Employees as early as possible.
