UGC's NET Guidelines Taken As Challenge: Hyderabad

Students To Challenge NET Guidelines
Students of Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh have come across a plan to challenge UGC's (University Grants Commission) new NET Guidelines (National Eligibility Eligibility Test) considered for lecturer posts.


Recently, UC's had brought up new rules which said that only top 15% candidates in NET will be eligible for taking up teaching jobs in colleges and universities.

On Sunday, students from English and Foreign Languages University said, they would approach court against UGC's guidelines. Till last year, any candidate who scored minimum marks was eligible for teaching posts.

"The UGC's decision was in violation of a Kerala HC order, issued on December 17th, 2012. A total of 28000 students appeared for the NET examination from Osmania University centre on Sunday", said the students who were protesting against it.

Mohan Dharavath, student leader of Students said "In its order, the Kerala HC had clearly stated that NET was only an eligibility test and not a competitive examination. The exam is only meant to test whether the candidates are qualified to teach or do research. However, by decidi9ng to grant NET certificates to only the top 15% candidates, UGC is denying an opportunity to others".

He also stressed out that new guidelines would do more harm than good for NET aspirants. "Those aspirants who had secured NET in the past would appear for the examination to get grants under Junior Research Fellowship (JRF). Such candidates are likely to figure in the top 15% of the merit list over and over again denying opportunity to others", he added.

Moreover, these students are planning to file a petition with a month's timing. What shall the petition further take to? Is still unanswered. Keep visiting to know more about this issue. What do you feel about this issue. Please share your opinions with us.
