Report of the Seventh CPC : Analysis and Recommendations
7.7.24 It is observed that the hierarchical structure of the Firefighting Staff in different organisations varies considerably.
The Commission feels that there is a need for a unified and standard hierarchical structure/pattern for the Firefighting Staff considering that there is similarity in their nature of duties irrespective of the organisation.
Thus it recommends drafting of Model Recruitment Rules for the Firefighting Staff of all Central Government Departments and UTs with similar designation and pay structure.
Replacement pay levels are recommended till such time that model Recruitment Rules are drafted and finalised.
However, taking into account the risk and hardship faced by these employees, an allowance based on cell R2H3 [Level >=9: ₹3,400 pm, Level <=8: ₹2,700 pm] of the Risk and Hardship matrix is recommended for them.
