Salary Of Government Pharmacist In India As Per Sixth And Seventh Pay Commission

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

I am giving the pharmacist salary figures according to the 6th and 7th pay commission at various pay scales for ESIC, CGHS, Railway  MCD, DTC, and various state pharmacists.

The easiest method to find your salary is by looking at grade pay and in most cases multiply it by 10 to get in-hand salary, but this is not always true.

In most of the Central Departments, Delhi government, and some other State departments, pharmacists are appointed at the pay-scale of 2800 . After two year probation pharmacists appointed at grade pay 2800 ( level 5) are promoted to grade pay of 4200 ( level 6). This is the case in CGHS, NDMC, ESIC hospitals etc

Pharmacist Starting salary at grade pay scale of 2800

Let’s first see salary as per sixth pay commission. Starting salary at grade pay 2800 for two years was 35000. This was gross salaray of government pharmacist in category A cities like delhi , mumbai banglore etc. About 5000 is cut,mostly for provident fund and some for health benefits etc. So entry level starting salary was about 30000 in-hand .

For B category towns reduce 1500, reduce further 1500 for C category very small town, and further 1500 for rural area to calculate approximate starting salary.

Now  seventh pay commission is implemented by most departments, so 2800 grade pay scale give about 45000 gross salary and about 40000 in hand to Pharmacist. 

So starting salary now is 45000 approx now.

Structure of pharmacist salary at Entry Level 5 as on December 2017

Basic Salary at Level 5 = 29200

HRA in category A town 24% of Basic = 7008

Transport allowance plus DA on it=  3600 + 180

Hospital patient Care Allowance = 4100

Dearness allowance 5% = 1460

Gross Pharmacist salary is  45548 rupees

(In cities like Delhi , Mumbai etc)

In category B towns Salary is lesser by about 3500

In other categories further lesser by 1500 or So.

 

Pharmacist Starting salary at grade pay scale of 4200

Now come to grade pay 4200. This grade pay is given from first month in DTC, but mostly the people with grade pay 2800 are promoted to 4200 after two years.

Starting salary at grade pay 4200 for pharmacist was 42000 . This was gross salary of government pharmacist in category A cities like delhi , mumbai banglore etc. About 5000 is cut,mostly for provident fund and some for health benefits etc. So in-hand entry level starting salary was about 37000

For B category towns reduce 2000, reduce further 2000 for c category very small town, and further 2000 for rural area to calculate approximate starting salary.

Now  seventh pay commission is implemented by most departments . 4200 grade pharmacist pay scale will give you about 57000 gross salary and about 52000 in-hand after two years of working at 2800 grade pay, this include 3 percent increment every year.

Structure of Pharmacist salary at  Level 6 after probation 

Basic Salary at Level 5 = 35400

HRA in category A town 24% of Basic = 8496

Expected Dearness allowance in 2019 January 10% = 3540

Transport allowance plus DA on it=  3600 + 360

Hospital patient Care Allowance = 4100

Service Increments in 2 years, 6 % of 29200 =  1752

Gross Pharmacist salary is  57158 rupees

(In cities like Delhi , Mumbai etc)

In category B towns Salary is lesser by about 3500

In other categories further lesser by 1500 or So.

Further as per your department policy you will be entitled to further promotion in about 10 years to grade pay 4600.

Lower salary of pharmacists in many states departments

Many states departments on the other hand give much less consolidated salaries. Say10000 to 15000 for pharmacist, like in gujarat, westbengal etc. Contract pharmacist also draw salary in this range. If lesser grade pay like 1900 is mentioned multilied it by 10 to get state department pharmacist approximate salary. So for states pharmacist see notification of post vacancy if you will get entry pay of 2800 or you will get less salary.

Government pharmacist basic pay increase 3 percent every year, and allowances are revised with inflation rate.

Further there is good chance that in future pharmacist will draw higher grade pay , because currently they are underpaid as per qualification, and reforms are bound to happen. In midterm future there are chances that pay scales of pharmacists will increase.

Please note that above government pharmacist salary figures are approximate values.
Also your salary will vary about +- 1000 rupees from above figures due to different allowances in different departments.
