Sub: Brief of the meeting held today with the Cabinet Secretary (Government of India)
Met today with the Cabinet Secretary (Government of India) and handed him over a copy of our letter dated 16th January, 2021, expressing our anguish over freezing of Dearness Allowance/Dearness Relief payable to the Central Government Employees and Pensioners/Family Pensioners. I also demanded for payment of Dearness Allowance/Dearness Relief with arrears since 01.01.2020.
During the course of discussion, the Cabinet Secretary said that the country was passing through an unprecedented situation that is why, Government had to take such an action, but he further said that, there should not be any doubt that freezing of Dearness Allowance/Dearness Relief will continue even after 30th June, 2021.
I also asked him that, no action has been taken our letter dated 11th January, 2021 (Reg. undue delay in settling the issues discussed in the meeting of the Standing Committing of NC/JCM and 47th meeting of the NC/JCM). He immediately called Addi. Secretary (Esstt.), DoP&T, and asked her to organize all the meetings due as well as to get implemented the issues agreed in the meetings of the NC/JCM referred to above.
This above is for your information.
