I have explained the salary for each post recruited through SSC CGL Exam. You can easily conclude that the salary is directly proportional to the Grade or Level of the post. Here one thing I want to mention that level 7 & 8 (Grade pay 4600 & 4800) are group B Gazetted post. Means you will be appointed as Officer in the central government department.  The salary also good and comparable to some of the Government Public sector undertakings, Bank PO, State Government PSC employees etc. So if you want a respectable job through SSC, you must try for Group B post. For that, you have to prepare best for all three exams. I have already shared the article about How to prepare for SSC CGL Exam, you can follow that.
