“The 16 point charter of demands will be discussed and amicably resolved in consultation with members of RDA and Commissioner and Addl. Commissioner (Health). The punitive action will not be taken against the Residents, however issue of salary during strike period will be forwarded to the competent authority for favorable consideration,” the reply added.
