7th CPC : Department of Animal Husbandry, Ministry of Agriculture, Cooperation and Farmes Welfare Revised Pay Rules 2016
7th CPC Recommendations Highlight Para:
11.1.38 The Commission has noted that the Sheep Shearer cum Supervisor has no promotional avenue. On the other hand Stockman starts in the GP. 2400 and eventually moves up to the GP.4600 as Livestock Officer. The entry qualifications of Stockman and Sheep Shearer cum Supervisor are of similar level. As their nature of duties is also similar, the Commission recommends that the grade pay of Sheep Shearer cum Supervisors be upgraded to the GP.2400. Since the upgradation will involve a jump from the level of Shepherd in the GP.1800 to Sheep Shearer cum Supervisor in the GP.2400 after a period of 12 years, the Commission is of the view that the government may consider introducing an appropriate level in between so as to graduate the progression from Shepherd to Sheep Shearer cum Supervisor.
