7th CPC Recommendations Highlight Para:
7.6.73 The Commission notes that the core optometry function has indeed expanded in recent times with the advancement in the sector. This is reflected in the revision in the entry level qualification. The Commission, therefore, recommends a higher GP 4200 for Optometrists. The Commission also recommends that the posts above thereof should be granted next higher GPs, i.e, a GP 4600 and GP 4800 for Senior Optometrists and Optometrists Officers, respectively.
7.6.79 Ministry of Health and Family Welfare have commented that the nature of duties and responsibilities of all the three posts, namely, Dental Hygienists, Dental Mechanics and Dental Technicians are more or less same. The Commission also notes that there was parity in the pay scales of Dental Mechanics, Dental Technicians and Dental Hygienists. However, the Commission notes that there has been revision in the entry level qualification for the Dental Hygienists, which stands higher than those of Dental Mechanics/Dental Technicians. Taking note of these facts, the Commission recommends a GP 2800 for Dental Mechanics and Dental Technicians.
7.6.108 The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare has recommended grant of higher pay to Dressers with the suggestion that entry level qualification be raised. The Commission observes that the entry level qualification of the Dressers should be Class XII with three years’ experience of dressing of wounds. Subject to this revision, the Commission recommends a higher GP 2000 for Dressers. Further, the existing incumbents not possessing the revised qualification may be granted replacement pay level for the time being. They may be granted the pay level corresponding to GP 2000 after acquiring the revised qualification or on completion of five years in the pay level corresponding to GP 1800, whichever is earlier
7.7.55 The Commission is of the view that cadres with similar job content and responsibilities should have similar entry level qualification and pay scales. The Commission, therefore, recommends GP 4200 for the Dental Hygienists of CGHS subject to the administrative ministry taking steps to bring uniformity in their entry level qualifications on the patterns of those in Central Government hospitals.
