The Government accepted the Commission's recommendations on minimum pay, fitment factor, Index of Rationalisation, Pay matrices and general recommendations on pay without any material alteration vide Resolution dated 25.07.2016. The recommendation on allowances was referred to an Empowered Committee. The Empowered Committee examined the demands of the Nurses Associations. The accepted recommendations on allowances were notified vide Government of India notification dated 06th July, 2017. The Government of India has accepted to retain and rationalize Nursing allowance and Operation theatre allowance. Uniform and washing allowance has been retained and subsumed under the Dress allowance. Most of the demands of AIGNF have been considered and concluded to their satisfaction

Nursing Association has not given any notice for strike. However, to avoid any such scenario a robust system of monthly interaction with Nurses has been put in place where grievances of Nurses, if any, are discussed.
