As regards to main issues, it was assured to ensure timely payment of Wages to CLs by avoiding delay in SSAs and Circles. It was also assured that instructions will be issued to SSAs and Contractors to remit EPF/ESI in the respective EPF Offices so as to avoid misappropriation of amount paid by the Management towards EPF. It was also assured to instruct Contractors to issue ID cards to CLs at the earliest, say by the end of July. A comprehensive Circular is being issued by the Circle Administration on all these.
