7th CPC recommendations for Assistant Research Officers

7th CPC recommendations for Assistant Research Officers

Department of Higher Education : Assistant Research Officers, Central Hindi Directorate

With a cadre strength of 68 employees, the cadre of Research officers in the Central Hindi Directorate (CHD) is responsible for preparing the corpus for lexicographical assignments and curriculum for correspondence courses. Their cadre structure is as under:

The educational qualification required for the post of ARO is Master’s Degree plus three years’ experience in teaching or research.

Their association has demanded better pay scales on grounds of historical parity with University Lecturers.

Analysis and Recommendations : At the outset, it should be made clear that University Lecturers do not fall under the ambit of the Commission and they follow a pay structure that is different from Central Government employees. For e.g. their pay structure includes Grade Pays of Rs.6000, Rs.7000, Rs.8000, Rs.9000, etc. which are not present in the current pay structure of Central Government employees. Hence, any comparison with them would not be appropriate.

The Commission also notes that the post of Research Officer, which was hitherto in GP 4800, was upgraded and merged with the post of Assistant Director (L) recently, in June, 2014. No further change in the structure is now warranted. Accordingly, no recommendations are made.
