Here is a few things that has been wrong with our LIS Professionals. Please spend a few minutes from your valuable time for this discussion.
Recently the Odisha Staff Selection Commision have published an recruitment advertisement for the posts of Assistant Librarian- 02 and Junior Librarian-08 against the vacancies in different department of GOVT of Odisha.
Please note here that all the post gone under contractual basis. then, when the Government Of Odisha recruit permanent posts?
Another thing you can mark here the eligible criteria for the above post is B.Lib Sc with Computer Science. MLIS can apply. priority goes to the computer science professionals then where the LIS professionals will be recruited.
You may evaluate the qualifications & pay scale...(See the attached Picture)
Qualification for Assistant Librarian is 50% in BlibSc and For Junior Librarian is 1st division in BLibSc. But Pay Scale of Asst. Librarian is higher than the Jr. Librarian. Pay scale for Asst. Librarian is Rs. 9300+ GP 4200 and For Jr. Librarian is Rs. 5200+ GP 2000.
For your information, The previous two recruitment (OSSC recruitment 2015 for the post of library assistant and the OSSC recruitment 2016 for the post of Librarian and Assistant Librarian.) of OSSC for different library vacancies have not been conducted their examinations and are till pending.

Sir, I think its not Jr. Librarian it should be Jr. Library Assistant because scale is 5200.
God knows what they are doing?
If someone have a first class BLIS degree (60%) he/she will get 5200 scale and if get second class BLIS degree (50%) he/she will get 9300 Scale.
