Please Diploma is just a type of certificate or qualification. Most of the time, diploma is issued after completing a course for a certain duration. Diploma is mostly a professional certificate or qualification which gives evidence to your level of mastery in a certain field. Due to the professional nature of diplomas, it is mostly restricted to your field of study. HND which stands for Higher national diploma is a special form or highest form of diploma. HND is the highest level of professional  diplomas in ghana.
Hnd is a national diploma and therefore it is accepted nationwide where applicable. Most professional and technical institutions offer HND to their students. Due to the vast types of diplomas it will be very difficult to come up  with payment structure form them. The ghana wages and salaries commission is now in the process of formalizing and structuring all the types of diplomas in relation to salaries.
