 PhDs Lack Behind Compared To Research

In order to boost research activities in the varsity and affiliated colleges, Mumbai University is now trying out several measures. The commerce facility, in particular, has been clearing pending research proposals and conducting workshops to encourage teachers to take up guide-ship in their respective fields of specializations.

The dean of Commerce from Mumbai University Madhu Nair said “The Research and Recognition Committee (RRC) for commerce has been clearing proposals. “There were pending proposals for more than a year on research topics. Now, we have been clearing at least 10-15 proposals in every meeting”.

The university is also working on the supply and demand aspect. “There is a scarcity of PhD guides in the University. Commerce has around 44 guides, exclusive of management guides. We are now holding workshops to explain to teachers the procedure to get their papers published. We are also training them in writing papers. A PhD holder is given guide-ship on basis of the number of papers they have published in their names”, said Madhu Nair.

He also included that the commerce department is attempting to increase the number of guides to 100 as soon as possible.
