Default Appointment names in Ministry

I always wondered, where in some ministries, the entry appointment for a degree holders are Assistant Directors or even Senior Assistant Directors

I mean is there a need to give them so high level sounding appointment names when they are fresh grads or MX 12 officers?

Is there any reason to this? I mean like so that they can attract more people?

Hmm... from what I know for ministries such as MTI, graduates start out as Assistant Directors. It sounds inflated, yes, but most of their officers will need to go out there to meet foreign delegates and important people and in this society, it takes titles like that for these important people to even take a glance at you if you're a fresh grad.

Why bother about the title so much? Just worry about your pay mans!

pay is pegged to the MX grade u r in. however in other ministries, ADs or SADs are normally MX 11 and above.

In MTI fresh grads who are MX13 are already given AD appointments! Creating a false impression i feel....

Title doesn't matter, grade and pay does. Mind, thought MTI has fancy titles, you can be stuck with SAD title for 10 years. Now imagine you're above 35 and still a SAD, and along comes a fresh grad with 3 - 4 years of experience (prob 29 years old) and also a SAD. How would you feel?
