```Assuming there is a single minimum in each sub-table (otherwise, the prob=
lem must be specified more precisely):

In:= mat={{{1,2},{3,-1},{2,-4}},{{1,2},{4,-5},{6=
,-8}},{{2,-1},{-2,-3},{-4,6}}};

In:= indpos=Flatten[Position[#,{u_,v_}/;v==Min[Cases[#,{=
x_,y_}->y]]]&/@mat]
Out= {3,3,2}

Out= {{2,-4},{6,-8},{-2,-3}}

(BTW, you have mixed ordinary parentheses and curly brackets in your exam=
ple; I corrected them).
