M.Phil holders must clear NET/SLET for lecturership

The University Grants Commission (UGC) has made it mandatory even for the M Phil holders to clear the National Eligibility Test (NET) or State- Level Eligibility Test (SLET) before they are considered for the post of lecturer. However, candidates holding a Ph D might still get an exemption from clearing the NET if they have done their research in compliance with the UGC norms. UGC chairperson Sukhadeo Thorat said “In case, the Ph D has not been done in compliance with the UGC rules, the candidate will have to clear the NET/SLET tests before he is considered for the post of lecturer.”

The UGC has also come out with a uniform regulation on Ph D programmes, according to which the universities will lay down criteria for the faculty to be recognised as research supervisor for M Phil and Ph D students. According to the regulations, “a supervisor cannot have more than eight Ph D and five M Phil scholars at any given point of time.

The universities will decide the number of M Phil and Ph D seats and advertise them widely. The universities will have to admit M Phil and Doctoral students through an entrance test.” The entrance will be followed by an interview in which the doctoral students will discuss their research area. After admission to the Ph D course, the students will have to do a course work for a minimum period of one semester. “The course work will be mandatory and it will be treated as pre M Phil/Ph D preparation,” Dr. Thorat said.

“After the students complete the course work, they will undertake a research work and will have to make presentation in their departments for feedback. Then they will produce their thesis within a reasonable time,” he said. “The thesis will be evaluated by two experts, including one expert outside the state. Then the candidates will have to appear for a viva voce exam”, he said.

The awarding institute has to submit a copy of the thesis to the UGC, INFLIBNET, Ahmedabad for making available through repository to user community. Link to the source

this is not fair wd the ph.d holders who got there degree after dec. 2002. i wana say wt is the fault of the scholer who submitt his degree on january 2003.. i mean he just could not b elidgeble only b’coz of a month . second thing those candidate who got there m.phil or ph.d degree before the u.g.c’s june verdict..wt is there fault they had not done there degree for hoping a exemtion….from last 2 & half month most of college apoint reguler lecturer on the basis of m.phil…..but wt about those who hv both m.phil & ph.d degree & hv’t got reguler yet…u.g.c saying those who got permanent r exempted to net…if u.g.c want quality teacher then they should also made net compulsary who got there job on the basis of m.phil…

MaheshJune 19th, 2009 at 2:17 pm

it is very unfortune decision taken by Mr. Sukhdev Thorat. He (UGC) is playing with M.Phil holders. there is not a continuity in their policy. first in 2006 they exmpeted M.Phl & Ph.d. holders form SLET/NET. now they changed their stance like a childish. their working is not responsive and rational one. they are victimised for the pressure put by SLET/NET hoders. UGC is not working properly. they have to resign from the post. they are not eligible for taking proper decisions and planning higher education policies. Parliament should enact some amendments regarding UGC. SHAME ON UGC & Thorat for such irresponsible decision.at the gobal level research getting importance and respect while in India it is contradictory situation. they are might be not aware of changing scinario at global level in research. SHAME ON THEIR ORTHODOXY MINDSET ABOUT RESEARCH. if they have to stick to current decision why they announced exeption before proper procedure of committee or extra. on behalf of M.Phil. & Ph.D. holder we request and demand exeption for us upto 30 June 2009.

MaheshJune 19th, 2009 at 2:19 pm

kindly & positively think about us.

RajeshJune 23rd, 2009 at 12:03 am

Dear Mahesh, how will you justify that a person without knowledge can enter in this highly reputed position…you plz think with cool mind and I am sure that you also believe that quality does always matter…at least NET exam works in this regard very well.. M.Phil exam has been made for foundation of Ph.D work..and now sily ppl want it a qualification to join this noble profession…so NET ppl should always be preferred…isn’t it?

RajeshJune 23rd, 2009 at 12:07 am

and UGC had given the judgment hurriedly on dated 14 june 2006…it cant’ be justified…NET exam can’t be replaced by only mere one degree….so Clear NET and justify yourself for this post..if you are really intelligent you’ll definitely clear it otherwise you don’t deserve thi job…okkkkk

surviJune 25th, 2009 at 8:54 pm

although net and slet exams help to judge ones knowledge .. keeping it as a criteria to teach is not correct.. we have lost many good teachers in college as they were not net /slet qualified. mere knowledge is not worth if u cant pass it on to your students.. we have many set/net passed teachers who dont know how to teach.. we dont understand what they teach..but they are there in service because they have passed the exams.job of teaching requires skill to maintain the class in order as well as teaching properly. what is the use of a net/slet passed teacher who cant teach properly.. this is not a desk job ..

surviJune 25th, 2009 at 9:01 pm

yes i agree with rajesh that if one is intelligent one can clear NET/Slet but what is the use if that person cant teach properly.. finally this job deals with teaching and not answering objective questions correctly and passing..i have passed net exam but still i would support the mphil / phd holders if through this i get a good teacher and not just a brain which cant pass on its contents to others.

VIKASHJune 26th, 2009 at 12:16 pm

dear survi,by your words i dont think you have cleared net,please look at the situation where about more than 100 applicants come out for every vacant post due to m phil and phd.And do you have any answer for those lakhs of students who clear m phil every year through distance education by investing some money.so there should be screening exam like net exam.even net holders have almost no prospect of getting job as our market is over flooded with net holders.the best thing is that we leave these m phil phd and net as these are all for eligibility to get a job but not a job.rather we should concentrate on direct job giving exams like upsc ssc banks etc ,after all what matters is getting a job.

surviJune 27th, 2009 at 10:55 am

dear vikash..i think you havent got the entire thing right and are confused to what the discussion is about. we are talking about teachers job specificaly and not any other job..u cannot compare a teachers job to any other job. at a desk job you are only dealing with files or field work but with a teachers job u have to teach and see that the students have understood or not.what i am talking about is whether the candidate is net/slet/ mphil/or phd holder.. he should be able to teach . mere knowledge of subject as a teacher is of no use if you cant pass it on. since you are confused about the whole discussion you say that i have not cleared NET probably because im supporting the exemption which is not the case. can you assure any of the above certificate holders to be a good teacher on mere basis of a degree or exam?if you are looking at teacher profession just as a mere job to earn money then it wont make a difference to you but since i have suffered as a student i feel the criteria of eligibility should be modified.

surviJune 27th, 2009 at 10:57 am

also what about those teachers who got exemption to net/slet upto 2002 on basis on mphil/phd..can anyone explain their eligibility then?

ruchi jainJuly 1st, 2009 at 9:27 pm

I have a first class in M.Phil in English, but I do not have 55% in MA. Can I sit for NET?
Please help me.

meenuJuly 1st, 2009 at 11:39 pm

who have interviews in this month and may get job on the basis of m.phil. think about those people . they are waiting for the job last 5-6 years.

vikashJuly 4th, 2009 at 1:18 pm

dear survi,if an exam should not be the only criteria,then one day you will surely say that an upsc IAS category cleared person cannot be a good administrator.then what should the upsc do to select the best administrators .

vikashJuly 4th, 2009 at 1:29 pm

survi,yes i do agree with you regarding those pre 2002 students.we should not blame each other.the main culprit is the UGC,which regularly changes the eligibility criteria from time to time,thereby getting the students confused about what to do and what not to do.i hope that the recent yashpal committee report abolishes UGC to save many a students` career.

surviJuly 8th, 2009 at 11:35 am

vikash i do agree wth u that it is unfair on the part of UGC to somersault every now and then.. when i say that exam shud not b the only criteria wht i mean is some kind of oral interview like teaching the class, control of the class and the students opinion shud b considered during an intervierw.
wht ever.. but the ugc shud think carefully bforemakin decision and implementing them.. i thnk d UGC has forgotten tht its a responsible body and stop acting like a child

sachinJuly 9th, 2009 at 12:25 pm

hi mahesh and survi , if you want to become a scientist,do phd or m.phil.if you want to be a school teacher,do b.ed.if you want to be a civil servant ,clear upsc or pcs exam AND IF YOU WANT TO BE A LECTURER,THEN CLEAR NET CONDUCTED BY UGC twice a year. you cannot become a scientist and a lecturer one at a time

surviJuly 9th, 2009 at 5:04 pm

dear sachin.. i think u r confused …u cant channel ur ‘knowledge ‘ somewhere else. ths topic is not meant for career counselling.. closed frm my side

RajeevJuly 9th, 2009 at 8:37 pm

Now M.Phil/ Ph.D holders have to approch High Court or Supreme Court to get justice.

G.RamachandranJuly 13th, 2009 at 2:08 pm

I am a Mphil holder passed by 1gc 1993. till now as per ugc rules, iam exempted from NET/SLET. The recent UGC rule indicating all mphils should pass NET/SLET is foolish. they should excempt 1993 mphils and ask other mphils to pass NET/SLET and fix a cut off date .

M.S.DhokteJuly 16th, 2009 at 10:05 pm

best decision taken by U.G.C for good and quality research.

RajeevJuly 18th, 2009 at 1:39 pm

what who have done M.Phil as then there was no such rule and first UGC found these M.Phil /Ph.D eligible.

rakeshJuly 20th, 2009 at 2:17 pm

There are so many permanent teachers teaching at under graduate level in almost all the college since long. what about those teachers? The Government must take a stand.

Trinesha ThimakapuraJuly 21st, 2009 at 6:44 pm

Hi Ruchi,

Replying to your query dated on July 1st, 2009 at 9:27 pm :

Having min 55% marks in MA is Mandatory to appear NET exam & M.phil marks will not be considered.

KCPJuly 26th, 2009 at 12:23 am

Can Someone tell me what would be the rules for a PhD holder from abroad?

SURESHJuly 27th, 2009 at 8:37 am

ugc and aicte are the reason for spoiling education standered and research development.
when the head is not knowing how to take the deceision ,where is the way that head can fix the standered for research. research starts from focused objectives. but this ugc and aicte are always in hyphotheses without objectives . i have doubt whether ugc and aicte are viewing from the past, present and future. they are playing in the life of educated group. they only spoil the education system.

its not blamming.many have left their teaching profession because of ugc and aicte decisions that is created like childish without taking into account of indian previous , present systems of education.

my conclusion is remove both ugc and aice and form new orgnaisation that stands with view on previous status and conditions on education system and look ahead to the future on the basis of previous.

Anurag PandeyJuly 29th, 2009 at 11:19 pm

Lots of Halla.. I am a PhD student of DU (since 2005), M.Phil frm JNU, have 6 national publications, three international publications (with peer reviewed journals).. and also currently editing 2 more articles.. writing a book with Sage Publication. I havent got NET in spite of the fact that I appeared for the test 12 times. Has it affected my ability as a researcher? UGC is expecting a researcher to produce original work.. lots of researchers are doing it.. how can UGC decide who is a good researcher or who is bad.. those who have NET are good researchers? Do they not follow cut and paste attitude? Clearing NET gives a certificate that the NET qualified person will produce an original research work and they will not plagiarise? Can I ask those people here who r supporting NET, how many research paper they have published in a refereed journal/s.how many of them do original research?

VIKASHJuly 31st, 2009 at 1:40 pm

dear anurag, with your publications,you can become a scientist,which NET qualified students cannot . if you want to be a lecturer ,then clear NET. YOU WILL SURELY CLEAR IT IN YOUR 13TH ATTEMPT.i dont know why with so much publications why you have not been able to clear NET.

Anurag PandeyAugust 1st, 2009 at 12:13 am

Dear Vikas
Thankx for your suggestions. Research and competitive exams are two different issues, any one can qualify competitive exam, but only few can produce original work/s. I know I can publish on the issue/s of my area/a of specialization/s, bt cant qualify any competetive exams. I am research oriented person, I havent cleared UPSC PT exams, reason being I always went into the debates of issues, say for example I was studying History (the Aryan question) for UPSC PT, all of a sudden I entered into the debates and outcome was I read Romila Thapas, Thomas R Trautman, and the Orientalist writings on India. Result was I didnt qualify UPSC PT. There were lots of other issues which I had read in detail. At the same time I cannot become a scientist since I am a political science student. I can be a social scientist. I am opposing this decision just because now I cannot be a lecturer in India. Previously I was selected in exeter university UK and Monash University, Australia. But I didnt join them since I always want to work in India and for India. In my 2007 published article (with sage), I have indicated that India may witness the threat of second partitin between Hindus and Muslims the title of the article is Communalism and separatism in India: An Analysis, u can find it on web it is now available free of cost. Another one is on Hindu terrorism in India. There are lots of other, in each and every article i am introducing new debates. I have got a job in US as an Assistant Professor my joining is in july/august 2010, it may be extended. I just need to finish my PhD. I cant express my grief, it was in my dream to teach in some college in India to teach student how to do research and how to think original. I always want a simple life with a full commitments. Irony is that I can get a job in US or any other country but not in my own country. Who should I blame……..

santoshAugust 6th, 2009 at 3:58 pm

I hear some of people in the Department of of collegiate education saying even, SLET is not valid anymore. Any idea about that?

SumanaAugust 20th, 2009 at 8:34 pm

I’ve got my Ph.D in 2007. Is NET is must for me?

SuparnaAugust 21st, 2009 at 10:46 pm

One of my friend is currently working as a Project Assistant level-2 in a CSIR institute and he is about to publish a paper in an international journal.can anybody tell me whether he can apply after 2 years of experience and with his publication in CSIR for SRF ?and will he be permitted to get registration for that?

SuparnaAugust 21st, 2009 at 11:03 pm

its very confusing.thats why I am asking becoz according to CSIR the eligibility criteria for a SRF is:
MSc, BE, BTech with minimum 60% marks and at least two years of post MSc, BE, BTech, research experience as evidence from fellowship/ associateship or traineeship and published papers in standard refereed journals


ME, M.Tech or equivalent degree in Engineering/Technology with minimum 60% marks


MBBS or BDS (with 1 year if internship) with first division


BPharm/BVSc/BSc (Ag) or equivalent degree with minimum 60% marks and at least three years of research experience.

Research workers who have had requisite training in methods of research alongwith above qualification and who have proved their aptitude for original research are eligible for this Fellowship.

but it is not clear why this UGC is refusing to provide my friend registration.plz somebody help me to find out the real thing…

Lain MarieAugust 31st, 2009 at 4:38 pm

I just want to scold those members who are doing some foolish business against the M.phil holders. What law is going on in india. Just in aug 2008 the gov appoints lecturers with m.phil qualification. Now the same gov want net.

K N Chidambara KumarSeptember 6th, 2009 at 6:34 pm

ugc is playing with the teaching lives of many people in India. It was the UGC and the Government who said that M.Phil. / Ph.D. holders need not clear SLET / NET during 2006. But in July 2009, those with M.Phil. / Ph.D. should also clear SLET / NET. This is so funny because during the period 2006 – May 2009 many lecturers have been recruited in Government Colleges and Aided colleges with M.Phil. as a qualification. And during the same period many have not obtained job as a lecturer and they are still working as a Management Lecturer in Many aided colleges because they were not given job because they were not Christians, Muslims, etc. If UGC makes SLET / NET as essential , then those who were recruited as lecturers in Many Government Colleges and Aided Colleges should also clear slet/net. If not atleast exempt those M.Phil. holders who have applied for many Government jobs in Government Colleges and Aided Colleges upto December 2006.

Prof.SubramonianSeptember 12th, 2009 at 8:22 pm

The information is usefull and was very elucidly stated.

Dr.SubramonianSeptember 20th, 2009 at 8:13 pm

Hope it is essential to maintain the standards of education in India.

hi Rajesh,
thanks for the information available in your blog. I have just completed my Post Graduation in International Relations with a first class,I am planning to sit for the NET exam in the following mid-year, once cleared how long does it take to get a lecturership job and what is the procedure like?

shenbaOctober 13th, 2009 at 12:02 pm

According to the current norms of U.G.C, would M.Phil holders be eligible for under graduation teaching? can anybody plz tel me?

Dr. SantoshOctober 14th, 2009 at 5:36 pm

Let the Universities/colleges decide about eligibility of a candidate, decentralise the sytem. Judge them on the basis of an entarance test at the university/college level and send indepedent observer through ugc . Relax all eligibility conditions making only Ph.D. as mandatory for PG level course nd for UG level simple MA is Ok. what is the diference between 50% marks from JNU/DU and 60% marks from state university, understand the difference?

Dr. SantoshOctober 14th, 2009 at 5:40 pm

anurag from where you hve done your master degree? Teaching is not like bank job? it involves innovations. not file work. ok subject knowledge is fine. take student feedback and start from TA ship and up-grade to a professor level.

Dr. SantoshOctober 22nd, 2009 at 2:44 pm

clearing net is just a minimum requirement, ultimately lecturership selection depends on selection committee. I know many students with net but subject knowledge is nil or not able to communicate properly, which is vital for any lecturer.

satyajit royOctober 26th, 2009 at 11:46 pm

what about those who registered themselves into the MPhil courses through entrance exam. At least the UGC must think of regular Mphil qualified candidates who are just different from those with the MPhil degree through distance mode.

SharmisthaJanuary 16th, 2010 at 12:24 am

To be a Ph.D is very difficult job. Please excempt the NET/SLET for those who are particularly Ph.d holder.If NET/SLET is the marking point to judge ones aptitude then its very wrong decision then what is the utility to do Ph.D. Please don’t equal this two degree
Ph.D and NET-SLET. Ph.D is much more difficult than Net/Slet. Now we are the age of 39, now you say what shall we do with this Ph.D degree? In W.B we did not have any Red Banner(Bustard C.P.M.,Party),so as a female we are maintaining our family, we are carrying our babies , we are doing offices, but why we don’t have any age relaxation for female in case of lecturership? Please in case of female Ph.D holder excempt the NET /SLET for lecturership and please give us relaxation minimum for 5 years what we had given to our babies, to this country. Think about women, think about mother. Don’t exploit us in this way. Its very much injustice. Then you give them another permanent job, who has M.Phil/Ph.d degree but does not have NET/SLET. Think differently with the Ph.D holder and of course for female and mother.

We are exploiting in West-Bengal because we are not belong to C.P.M Party. We are so many females, mothers, we are suffering in West-Bengal, please give job oppurtunity to Ph.D holder, we are many and we don’t have NET/SLET, but we have Ph.D degree,or submitted our thesis on June 2009. Please think about female ,we are very much deprived here, we have family, we have little little kids, we have contractual post, age 39-40.please excempt the NET/SLET for female and give them age relaxation for 5 years. Think about woman.They are much serious, careful and responsible and ofcourse good teacher. Give them space. Don’t exploit them, otherwise what is the utility of female education. Otherwise we will not teach our female babies, better we will teach them only house -keeping.

To the Present day standards Ph.D. is a pre-requisite for Lecturership. I invite the decision of UGC authorities, though some M.Phil., holders may be disappointed

JACOBApril 23rd, 2010 at 12:36 pm


dear frens,nowadays NET qualified students are very very frustrated.students appeared for this exam thinking that they will surely get a lectureship job by clearing this exam.but at last UGC-NET turns out to be only an eligibility exam, not a job securing exam. every year about 20 thousands NET qualified students are produced by ugc,but the ugc does not make any arrangement to give jobs to these NET qualified students.after devoting about 3 to 4 years to clear this exam,a NET ualified student’s age crosses the maximum age limit for direct job giving exams like upsc ssc lic banks etc. so dear frens lets neglect this hopeless UGC-net exam and lets focus our attention on direct job giving exams like upsc ssc lic banks etc,before it is too late.

sangeetaMay 13th, 2010 at 7:19 pm

the ugc’s decision regarding barring mphil and phd holders from lecturership should be unanimously challenged in the court of law.

Hema.BMay 30th, 2010 at 11:29 pm

Dear friends,
I am new to this blog. I have gone through various comments, opinions etc. given year. I would like to quote our situation. A section of people from tamilnadu have completed their masters and M.Phils in corporate secretaryship. The subject was in the recognised list of ugc only once during 1994-95(appx). Latter it was removed. We were not allowed to appear either in commerce or in management for many years. When ever we apply for NET or SLET we will get a rejection letter stating that the subject is not in the recognised list of UGC. We were deprived of the opportunity for many years and for few who have cleared in commerce, the results were withheld. What is the stand of UGC in this? The universities conducting the course are recognised by UGC but the course is not. What is the logic? Many representations, suggesstions had no effect. For many rare courses they are included in the UGC list. A course widely thought in Tamilnadu universitity is not included. Should we call it fate? Why this discrimination to a section of people whom have not done anything wrong except sepecilaised in a pariticular subject.
Personally i feel that the cut off date for M.Phil or Ph.D is of no logic because, everybody cannot qualify for 1993 m.Phil or 2009 Ph.d. Should the date be a cuf off or a degree be?

There must be some standardaisaton on the decisions of UGC. It cannot change it as it wishes.

Nilkamal kalitaJune 4th, 2010 at 11:58 am

i have been clear M.phil degree in 2008. is NET is compulsory for me?

abhayJune 6th, 2010 at 8:24 am

Dear Friends,
How thesituation arises in INDIA SHINNING that the retired lecturer gets Approx. 45000/-p.m. pension ,new Lecturer joining the services for the same post in Unadied Colleges starts from 8000/- p.m. Please kindly see that the UGC has failed in implementing its own norms Also I am sorry to say that the UGC Authoritites are also not answering the mail.

ManjishthaJune 10th, 2010 at 10:59 am

So what is the final verdict? Are Ph.D. degree holders (who have gained entrance through the new Ph. D. entrance norms by U.G.C.) eligible for lecturership?

ManjishthaJune 11th, 2010 at 10:00 am

@ Rajesh
Thanks for clarifying the point Sir.

anchal aggarwalJune 22nd, 2010 at 4:10 pm

if someone cleared their m.phil through regular course,then is he/she eligible for lecturership?or exempted from net/slet?actually under ugc guidelines there main problem is no.of students passing m.phil every year but now they made a condition of regular course so whats their problem and why they want compulsory qualifying net exam.

AISHWARYA OBEROIJune 30th, 2010 at 5:15 pm

Clearing the NET exam should not be mandatory if one has knowledge and is capable of teaching at the college level. if a person has done m.phil and phd he or she is definitely not an idiot then why for becoming a lecturer he or she has to prove his or her knowledge via this so called net exam . INSTEAD OF THIS NET EXAM THERE MUST BE A RECRUITMENT BOARD WHICH TESTS WHETHER A PERSON REALLY KNOWS HOW TO TEACH OR NOT BECAUSE I HAVE SEEN MANY NET QUALIFIERS WHO DO NOT KNOW THE ABC OF TEACHING. WHAT I FEEL IS ITS AN UTTERLY WRONG DECISION ON THE PART OF UGC.

AISHWARYA OBEROIJune 30th, 2010 at 5:27 pm


ManishJuly 6th, 2010 at 9:16 am

Still UGC didn’t cleared the date for exemption frm NET for those who have completed their M.Phil. and enrolled for Ph.D. just before the 2009 Regulation.UGC sould first cleared the Dates for Exemption frm NET.
NET is Just a Exam, It only signifies that one who had cleared the net have capacity of solving some Objective Ques. and Derivation. If only net qualified are eligible for teaching then the Person who cracked the IIT entrance should also be eligible for teaching XII std.Is it right or not.

ManishJuly 6th, 2010 at 9:28 am

If NET is so Important for Lectureship then M.Phil. course should be Closed and later on Ph.D. because If someone get these degree after devotion of so much time, he would not be eligible for teaching.

mitaleeJuly 14th, 2010 at 2:26 pm

I am a M.phil holder. I did M.phil with anticipation that I will be exempted from Net/slet exam. But in July 2009 UGC has made Net/ slet mandatory for lecturership. Till June 2009 UGC itself approved that M.Phil holders are exempted from Net exam. Suddenly it has changed the rule. This is not fair. I request UGC to reconsider the decision and allow M.phil holders to teach undergraduate level.
I hope that there will be favour decision from UGC soon.

TulikaAugust 1st, 2010 at 11:51 am

Net is not only foolish but illogical. I would have supported net exam had it been of some use in “assessing” what an individual is worth! if it asks questions like who was Goldmith’s servant or what was written on yeats’ grave, this in no way can comment on my ability as a teacher.Also, i dislike the pattern of the exam. Why would they not check the third paper (the subjective one where i can actually prove my knowledge of teh subject) without me having passed teh first two papers? what is the logic? Besides, studying from DU at Mphil or PhD level itself means going through a tough, highly competitive grind. Hardly 15 candidates are selected for mphil in my dept. after an All-india entrance exam and interview.
Also, we are not given any stipends during our Mphil. Then we need to go through a similar competitive way for our phd..my dept. was famous for not having taken any phd candidates for over 10 years..if after all this i register for a phd, that too, from one of teh best central universities in india, all i get to earn is 5000rs as my phd stipend, that too which is paid to me in installments after every 6 months. What am i to earn? not that i have not “invested” in my education, either economically or intellectually. I used to work as a guests ina college where perm. teachers are either MAs or Mphils without dissertation. They hardly take any classes. why not pull their necks up?
Would Net exam change or alter my intellect in any way?? no, not unless we seriously try and restructure the exam.

kanu uppalAugust 7th, 2010 at 6:39 pm

i dont find any rationality in the decision making of the system. when M.Phil programme was launched, the scholars were promised the regular lecturer jobs…….what now? can the UGC explain the rationality of such a decision? No….. definately not….. What is the fault of such a scholar who got admision in 2007 M.Phil programme?

MelvinAugust 19th, 2010 at 9:22 pm

There is no country in this world , which holds such exam as net/slet. Only a Ph.D is eligible for Teaching postion in all other countries. All these countries have done much in research. but our country is low on this.It is not able to produce any noble laurate in the past 50 years from our soil (With an exception from those who have settled abroad). If these systems (NET/SLET) cant do those, there is no point in having them. This because of this idiotic system in this country most of scientist have left this country and are doing fine over there.

VIVEK DEOLASIAugust 26th, 2010 at 12:04 pm

I learn in Y.C.M.O.U distance education work and learn. But sham! u.g.c. not cleared decision for M.Phil & P.hd. Exception for them. i am Pass out M. Phil ( lib & inf. Sci ) in 4 April 2010. can i eligible for Teaching post/or as same post.

anuradhaSeptember 2nd, 2010 at 8:08 pm

Mphil. and Phd which are considered as the highest degrees in education , if are of no value and if a person is not eligible to teach by obtaining these degrees but is eligible only when he has passed NET/SET Exam, what is the use of doing research and making innovation in india in the era of globalisation? Always the ability to teach should be given importance.Is this a punnishment for the sincere staff involved in teaching without net/set and doing their job obediently in the expectation of getting exemption ?

dindyal p kawareSeptember 12th, 2010 at 11:45 am

there shoud be first division in post graduation to do phd which will so helpful to maintain the quality in phd. m.phil holders shoud have appointed on jr. college level .thus,can be solved the problem of m. phil holders

B.A. jagadeeshaSeptember 22nd, 2010 at 5:38 pm

For proper understanding of the change in the policy stance of the UGC, one should retrospect the background in which NET was introduced in the late 1980s, it was introduced to ensure minimum standard in teaching in universities and colleges when mediocres were making easy entry into this field. UGC exempted M.Phil and Ph.D. holders from passing NET exam in the same intention as many scholars think i.e., to promote research and bring about attitudinal change towards research among youths. But what was the outcome! universities started selling M.Phil degrees at varying prices like 10 to 50 thousand rupees, those who had not able clear NET exam flocked at theses Universities and bought the degree certificates in few months. Bad M.Phils drove out the good M.Phils. If exemption continues, how could one distinguish between bad and good m.phils. i have many examples of my friend who literally bought the certificates from few universities from AP and Tamil Nadu. so in order to restore the minimum dignity of teaching profession, UGC inevitably rolled back its decision and made NET compulsory. When you pay the teachers handsomely, pay it to the deserving one not to mediocre.

rupaliSeptember 27th, 2010 at 1:03 am

Dear Sir,
This is a correct decision taken by you that a phd student must clear course work first and should be allowed to pursued the pHD course only after the entrance exam as laid by UGC norms.This will filter the quality as UGC desires and also select the students who will be at par with the NET clear students . The nET SLET should be exempted if the candiadtes are selected for pHD thru Exams and a proper course work is followed before the research.

Dr. Kundan PrasadOctober 3rd, 2010 at 7:21 am

About the great policy makers
Kindly say what deference between the candidates who was PhD awarded before 11 July 2009 and other was after 11 July 2009. Suppose one is awarded PhD on 10 July 2009 and other is 12 July 2009 according to blind rule of UGC first is qualified for assistant professor and other second one is not qualified for same post. First you are differentiate people and people by cast and now your label of mental fall so bellow you are seeing the same degree are deference.
The students of PhD, are spent his peak times for his/ her carriers. This knows the makers of regulation for assistant professor because they are all the PhD holders before 11 July 2009 and they are not PhD according to UGC regulation 2009. I thinks the deference between the makers of UGC regulation and us are they are holders of such post, which they can destroyed our carrier and intent in research other hand we are only poor holders of PhD. I thinks this types of PhD man are real terrorisms of our country, who are pays a game for providing job to his/ her relative so they makes like this regulations. If they are really thinks about the our country then they see all the students like one sight but our planes makers and our leaders are all cupped and they makes plan in view of only some powers full man, which can provide them benefits.
The such PhD holders or makers of regulation for assistant professors now say the increase the limits retirement 60 to 65 but they are want now checks the PhD holders after 11 July 2009 or the students who are registered before 11 July 2009 and decrease the opportunities and self earns more and more money. Can such PhD holders or makers of regulation for assistant professors work as emeritus scientist, answer is always NO and Never. Others hands crowds of qualified are standings or waiting for job and want to do goods for country. The policy makers (pets of leaders) pay the roles of olds British rulers. Examples are in 6th pay commotions theirs a lots are mistakes, why makes this types of policies. So such works are they do who are not thinks about our country, they are thinks only about the benefits of self.
I want to say this is the mistake of students or university, who did not, follows the rules which are determined by UGC. This is the maters of UGC and universities, why punished to students. Can they come the opportunity for us, no and impossible.
I want to say to all the policies makers and respected and responsible ministers of every ministry improve first your labels thinking and do not work only for self.

nehaOctober 12th, 2010 at 9:27 am

Yeah u r right. Injustice has been done to all p.hds and m.phils who obtained their degree after july. At least u,gc should make eligible the candidates who has obtained the degre or enrolled in the degree .At least the persons who are actually brilliant will not suffer. Yea it is true that there are people who are getting fake degrees but this also is true that all are not fake some scholars are also there . so what is their fault. At least a fare decision should be there. Otherwise u.g.c and the universities which offered these degrees should take them back and compensation should be given to each candidate for spending so much time in getting these degrees which are of no use now.

Disgusting this system is.

Dr. Kundan PrasadOctober 13th, 2010 at 7:32 pm

I though this is not the dreams of our freedom of fighters like Mahatama Gandhi and any other. I think theirs is great need to fight for re freedom from corrupt officers and leaders. This is not only the maters of us like UGC but every area of the our daily life are affected by the corrupt officers and leaders.

Very encouraging and motivated step to increase the quality of teaching and consequently research at college and university level by making NET/SET compulsory for Lecturership even for M.Phils and Ph.Ds.

vikramNovember 2nd, 2010 at 3:35 pm

bombay high court gave the decision in favour of the M. Phil holder

vikramNovember 2nd, 2010 at 4:52 pm

PhD and MPhil degree holders will no longer have to clear the National Eligibility Test (NET) or State Eligibility Test (SET) to teach in universities and colleges.

The University Grants Commission (UGC), which had made clearing NET mandatory for most candidates to bag teaching posts in colleges and universities, recently issued a notification to its regional offices exempting applicants who have completed MPhil or PhD from appearing for the examination.

The Bengal government has welcomed the move and extended the exemption to SET. Clearing the examination allows candidates to apply to colleges and universities in the state.

The decision will bring relief to hundreds of PhD and MPhil degree holders who aspire to teach on Bengal campuses. The decision will also help colleges in the state to fill up vacancies (see box). The stringent eligibility tests were coming in the way of teacher recruitment.

“Only a small percentage of students sit for NET or SET and an even smaller percentage of them clear the tests,” said an official of state college service commission.

“We have received a notification announcing the exemption from our head office in Delhi. It will soon be sent to the state higher education department and to the vice-chancellors of various universities in the state,” said Ratnabali Banerjee, the joint secretary in the UGC’s eastern regional office in the city.

“Once the UGC issues the order for NET, it will automatically apply for SET as well,” said Subimal Sen, the chairman of the state higher education council.

The July 2009 notification had only exempted those who completed PhDs that meet the UGC’s latest regulations from clearing NET or SET to apply for college or university teaching posts.

Under the latest regulations, students clear an entrance test and submit a project report to enrol themselves for doctoral degrees. The regulations came into effect in 2009.

“I am happy that I will not have to appear in NET or SET to teach in a college,” said a research scholar who had completed his doctorate at Calcutta University in 2008.

The Central government had set up a committee in 2007 to recommend a minimum qualification for appointment of college and university teachers.

The committee had recommended in its interim report that clearing NET or SET should be mandatory for candidates, except those who hold MPhil and PhD degrees. The UGC had implemented the recommendation. The final report of the panel was more stringent.

What a great confusion the UGC, the country’s university education board, is creating among the student aspirants who wants to build future India. When you say Ph.D degree holders are exempted from the NET, then you should think of M.phil holders also, it means what is the value of this degree. Are you considering it as a prerequisite qualification for research or something else you should decide first. And the same time if you give exemption up to certain point what about the other students, does the commission think that those who got their M.Phil degree or joined after that date are fit for nothing. I don’t understand one thing that why there is no clarity in our well educated policy makers decisions. I request the UGC, please do not play with the lives of employee youth.

solankiMarch 22nd, 2011 at 12:29 pm

i want to say something , when i joined B.sc. in 2003 we have 7 lecturer in our college ,
right now the no of lecturer is 2 since Jan 2007
since jan 2007 only two lecturer in my college who bears the load of 7 lecturer ,
other thing pay of Adhoc lecturer in our Gujarat government is less on 2008 is just 7500 pm
and for it increased to 16500 pm after implementation of 6th pay in Gujarat.
so no suitable candidate is available for lecturer in Adhoc base as well as due to this type of minimum qualification confusion no GPSC in Science college announced by government.
this is terrible situation of education in Gujarat but no one raise their hand against it.

solankiMarch 22nd, 2011 at 12:45 pm

one more thing
i forget is most of Ph.D scholar get job in researh institute, in pay band of 37400+ 6600 or 7600 grade pay so they are not interested in teaching.

but as i mentioned since 2007 in my college only 2 lecturer of physics.

how they can give justice to B.Sc. all semester student. , it is impossible.

also many states follow your guideline for minimum qualification for recruitment.

but not follow he gude line for pay related

especially in contractul bases.
as per your guide line contractual appointee of 11 month not paid less then totalemoulment given to regular appointed lecturer . but it is not followed by
many state government

you have authority to ask them about pay also , this may help adhoc lecturer and Student of science college

i request you to ask government of all state to provide their staff detailas on 2005 and 2010

you found that number of student in science B.sc. incresed but , no of staff decreased

student teacher ratio is more then 70 in science college.

please do necessay about this problem.

NET should not be the compulsory exam for the lecturership because a one day paper can’t judge a person’s potentials regarding his or her subject. So how one can say that candidates who have cleared the NET exam are eligible or capable of teaching other students.

ARUP KUMAR MONDALApril 12th, 2012 at 8:48 pm

Any one told me about supreme courts decision regarding Mphil examption. As today(12/04/12) was its hearing date. This case was made for challenging Madras High courts decision regarding Net/set as the mandatory qualification for CSC(College service commission). I am very eager to know this.

Ganesh K PrasanthJuly 4th, 2012 at 10:11 pm

Please reffer http://www.ugc.ac.in/more/commissiondecision/472.pdf
“The Commission further resolved that since both the above mentioned
Regulations are prospective and not retrospective in nature, therefore, all
candidates having M.Phil degree on or before 10 th July, 2009 shall remain
exempted from the requirement of NET for the purpose of appointment as
lecturer/Assistant Professor. Further, all candidates who have either obtained
Ph.D degree on or before 31 st December, 2009 and candidates who had
registered themselves for Ph.D degree on or before 10 th July, 2009 and are
subsequently awarded Ph.D degree, shall remain exempted from the requirement of NET for the purpose of appointment as Lecturer/Assistant Professor”.
