7th Pay Commission recommends replacement pay levels for Radiotherapy Technicians
Radiotherapy Technicians : Radiotherapy Technicians have demanded upgradation of pay grade from GP 2800 to GP 4800. The rationale for seeking higher pay level is that they are intensively involved in treatment of cancer patients and thereby are exposed to radiation and other risks.
The entry level qualification for initial recruitment of Radiotherapy Technician is Class X + Certificate of Two Years’ course in Radiography with Radiotherapy as a compulsory subject.
The existing hierarchy of Radiotherapy (Technicians) is as follows:
The Commission appreciates the arduous nature of duties performed by the Radiography Technicians/Senior Radiotherapy Technician/Mould Room Technician/ Radium Curator. However, given the entry level qualification and pay structure of similarly placed cadres, the Commission recommends replacement pay levels for Radiotherapy Technicians.
