7th CPC recommended to replace levels in the new pay matrix for Artists
Artists : The posts of Artists are found in Offices under Ministries of Defence, Information and Broadcasting, Ministry of Culture, Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi etc. The cadre structure of Artists, pay and entry level qualifications at various levels, which are not quite uniform, are given below
Representations have been received for upgrades across levels.
Analysis and Recommendations : The Commission finds only one instance where upgrade appears justified. The post of Poster Artist in the EME Corps of the Army is presently at GP 2000. Given the entry level qualifications and the job profile, the Commission recommends that the post should be upgraded to GP 2400. The remaining posts in various organisations are considered to be appropriate placed and the Commission recommends that they be given replacement levels in the new pay matrix.
