7th CPC Recommendations for Publicity Staff
The posts of Publicity staff are found in Anthropological Survey of India, Border Roads Development Board, Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, Government of NCT of Delhi, etc.
The Commission has received memorandum for upgrading the pay scales of various posts. Comparisons have been drawn with CSS to further the case of upgrades, citing historical parities.
Analysis and Recommendations : The Commission studied the job profiles and required educational qualifications of various posts of Publicity Staff across ministries. It is the view of the Commission that the posts are appropriately placed in the pay hierarchy and upgrade is not justified.
Regarding comparison with CSS, the Commission is of the view that the two job roles are functionally different and hence, incomparable.
