UGC Amendment 2009 on Minimum Qualifications for Appointment and Career Advancement of Teachers in Affiliated Universities and Institutions

In the ANNEXURE to the University Grants Commission (Minimum Qualifications required for the appointment and Career Advancement of teachers in Universities and Institutions affiliated to it) Regulation, 2000, the following was provided in the Note to Regulation 1.3.3, 1.4.3, 1.5.3 and 1.6.1 :

“NET shall remain the compulsory requirement for appointment as Lecturer even for candidates having Ph.D degree. However, the candidates who have completed M.Phil degree or have submitted Ph.D. thesis in the concerned subject upto 31st December, 1993 are exempted from appearing in the NET examination.”

The said Note to Regulation 1.3.3, 1.4.3, 1.5.3 and 1.6.1 was substituted by the following para, vide University Grants Commission (Minimum Qualifications required for the appointment and Career Advancement of teachers in Universities and Institutions affiliated to it) (1st Amendment), Regulation 2002:

“NET shall remain compulsory requirement for appointment as Lecturer even for candidates having Ph.D. Degree. However, the candidates who have completed M.Phil. Degree by 31st December, 1993 or have submitted Ph.D. thesis to the University in the concerned subject on or before 31st December, 2002 are exempted from appearing in the NET examination. In case such candidates fail to obtain Ph.D. Degree, they shall have to pass the NET examination.”

Further, the above provision brought in to effect by the University Grants Commission (Minimum Qualifications required for the appointment and Career Advancement of teachers in Universities and Institutions affiliated to it) (1st Amendment), Regulation 2002, was further substituted by the following provision of the University Grants Commission (Minimum Qualifications required for the appointment and Career Advancement of teachers in Universities and Institutions affiliated to it) (2nd Amendment), Regulation 2006:

“NET shall remain compulsory requirement for appointment as Lecturer even for those with Post Graduate Degree. However, the candidates having Ph.D Degree in the concerned subject are exempted from NET for PG level and UG level teaching. The candidates having M.Phil.

Now, the above provision shall be substituted by the following paragraph in UGC (MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS REQUIRED FOR THE APPOINTMENT AND CAREER ADVANCEMENT OF TEACHERS IN UNIVERSITIES AND INSTITUTIONS AFFILIATED TO IT) (3rd AMENDMENT), REGULATION 2009.

“NET/SLET shall remain the minimum eligibility condition for recruitment and appointment of Lecturers in Universities/Colleges/Institutions.

Provided, however, that candidates, who are or have been awarded Ph.D. Degree in compliance of the “University Grants Commission (minimum standards and procedure for award of Ph.D Degree), Regulation 2009, shall be exempted from the requirement of the minimum eligibility condition of NET/SLET for recruitment and appointment of Assistant Professor or equivalent positions in Universities/Colleges/ institutions.”

In my case the viva was conducted on 1/4/2016. The delay in declaration of result of 22 days has taken place by RTM Nagpur University.
