7 CPC in Para 7.14.j, quoted the following the recommendation of 6 CPC:
“Time had come to grant parity between similarly placed personnel
employed in field offices and in the Secretariat and this parity would
need to be absolute till the grade of Assistant”.
With this quote, the 7 CPC recommended the following:
“The Commission accordingly strongly recommends parity in pay between
the field staff and head quarter staff upto the rank of Assistants on
two grounds – firstly the field staff are recruited through the same
exam and they follow the same rigours as the Assistants of CSS and
secondly there is no difference in the nature of functions discharged
by both…”.

Denial of the same pay scale to field offices as of those cadres
upto Assistant SO in CSS is in violation of the principles
enuciated by the 7 CPC that cadres and categories having similar
recruitment qualifications must carry identical pay scales. This
also is causes horizontal relativity between the pay sclaes of
field level staff and those of CSS.
This recommendation need to be implemented in letter and spirit by
granting the pay scale that Assistant Section Officers and
Stenographers of CSS to Assistants and Stenographers of field
offices so as to remove the anomaly.
