Assistant Research Officer and Senior Research Assistant of CWC to get next higher Grade Pay – 7th Pay Commission

7th CPC recommends Grade Pay for Assistant Research Officer and Senior Research Assistant of CWC

7th Pay Commission has recommended next higher grade pay for Assistant Research Officer and Senior Research Assistant of CWC

Scientific Cadre

The initial recruitment to the Scientific Cadre is done at the level of Senior Research Assistant in the GP 4200. The next promotional level is Assistant Research Officer in the GP 4600, which is followed by the Group `A’ post of Research Officer in the GP 5400 (PB-3).

They have demanded upgradation of the post of Senior Research Assistant to GP 4600 and that of Assistant Research Officer to the GP 4800, as that would put their hierarchical levels at par with that in Central Soil and Material Research Station (CSMRS), Central Water and Power Research Station (CWPRS) and Central Ground Water Board (CGWB), whose entry levels have the same essential qualification as in CWC. It has been brought out that the parity is all the more necessary as two of the offices, CWPRS and CGWB are subordinate offices of the ministry whereas CWC is an attached office. A comparative hierarchical table on the present position is shown below:

They have  also  demanded  extension of the Modified  Flexible Complementing Scheme (MFCS) to their cadre as they are engaged in critical work of monitoring water quality of rivers in India.

Analysis and Recommendations

The Commission has noted that at the entry level the scientific cadre in CWC starts at a lower level as compared to CSMRS, CWPRS and CGWB despite having the same post- graduate level essential qualification. The Commission accordingly recommends that the post of Senior Research Assistant in the attached office of CWC be upgraded to GP 4600. With this upgradation, Senior Research Assistant shall come to lie in the same scale as the promotion post of Assistant Research Officer. The Commission, accordingly, recommends that the post of Assistant Research Officer be placed in the next higher GP 4800. The next higher post in the hierarchy, that of Research Officer will, however, continue to be in GP 5400 (PB-3). Incumbents of this shall be extended only the replacement level of pay. As regards the demand that the scope of MFCS be enlarged to include the scientific cadre of CWC, the Commission recommends that the matter be examined by GoI.
