Dear all,

1.       On 22nd September, 2006, UGC wrote this letter to all Universities
that the Commission in its meeting held on 25th August, 2006 approved
exemption from NET to M.Phil and Ph.D. Degree holders for appointment to the
post of Assistant Librarian & Assistant Director of Physical Education.

*After arrival of this circular, Job seekers attempting for NET/SET/SLET
take admission for M.Phil. courses in regular or open universities or
through distance education. *

* *2.      Next, this was published on January 15, 2009 in Hindustan Times
Delhi Edition…

 NET must from next year by Chetan Chauhan, Hindustan Times, New Delhi,
January 15, 2009

The detail news is available at

*Some Teachers and Librarians got exempted from NET/SET/SLET and some get
conditional exemption as their proposals were sent by their Universities to
UGC for exemption.*

* *

*3.*      *Then, as per draft ugc notification on revision of pay scales,
minimum qualifications for appointment of teachers in universities and
colleges & other measures for the maintenance of standards, 2009, *


*3.1.0 *The direct recruitment to the post of Assistant Professors,
Associate Professors and Professors in the Universities and Colleges shall

UGC office or officials or so, Please guide us on the following few
questions :*

*1.*      *What is UGC’s present stand on qualification of Lecturers and

*2.*      *Can’t UGC take a firm decision on the qualification of Lecturers
and Librarians?*

*3.*      *Is there any official circular from UGC on what was published in
Hindustan Times about exemption to M.Phil. till June 2009?*

*4.*      *What is the stand of UGC for the candidates, who have
completed/are studying M.Phil. and had paid big amount of Fees for doing
M.Phil. from regular, distance, open university courses?*

*5.*      *What UGC expect the NET/SLET/SET qualified candidates, who are
still jobless and searching for the jobs, shall do?*

*6.*      *If Exemption is given to M.Phil. upto June 2009, what about
thenew entrants who will try
for NET/SLET/SET and may not get qualified for years? *
