In my opinion the SCJP has value, kind of intangible though. First of all you get to know Core Java pretty well, and that means a lot at interviews and technical questions. Second you get recognition and foot in the door. Probably dollars too.

This is Akhilesh from India. In a recruitment process of around 15-20 candiadates, being SCJP 1.4 I was allowed to skip the preliminary written test round and walk in straight for a direct interview round at an XYZ concern.
Pay? I am yet to explore that region.

I would argue that SCJP will open some doors. SCJD, SCEA or any other 'higher' certificate is probably worth a lot more; since anyone in the recruitment process who knows what the SCJP is will also probably realise that it is possible to pass it by rote learning.
