UGC announces NET exemption cut-off date for MPhil holders??

Hi All. I received some information today that NET is exempted for Mphil Holder who completed on or before 10th July, 2009. When I checked on NET - it is showing news of 9th November, 2010, source - Times of India.


Do any one has idea - is that already in place or it is something new came up?


Detailed News

University Grants Commission (UGC) has decided to exempt all
candidates who obtained an MPhil degree on or before July 10, 2009 from
clearing the National Eligibility Test (NET) to qualify for a lecturer?s job.
The decision, taken at the UGC's 472nd meeting recently,
comes as a huge relief for MPhil degree holders. The UGC had last year
said that for the post of assistant professor it is mandatory to qualify NET. This regulation had invited strong protests from a cross-section of the academic community and also led to multiple litigations in
various high courts, including the Madras high court.
At its meeting, the UGC noted that the UGC Regulations of 2009/2010 "are
prospective and not retrospective in nature," and therefore resolved
that "all candidates having MPhil degree on or before July 10, 2009
shall remain exempted from the requirement of NET for the purpose of
appointment as lecturer/assistant professor."
?A copy of the minutes of the meeting furnished to a Delhi-based applicant under the
Right to Information Act revealed that similar exemption shall be
applicable to all candidates who have obtained a PhD degree on or before December 31, 2009. Candidates, who had registered themselves for PhD
degree on or before July 10, 2009 and are subsequently awarded PhD
degree, shall also enjoy the exemption from NET. The new exemption might just fill various vacancies in?universities?across the country that is facing serious faculty crunch.

Thanks and Regards

Hi Badan


I somewhere read that "UGC announces NET exemption cut-off date for MPhil holders in 472nd meeting. But in 473rd meeting, it has been ruled out also".


[n below link one of the comments says above thing]


Can you please confirm on this. As it will help us in finding. Also, I checked UGC site but nothing mentioned there if you have any updated link/circular copy please share it. Thankyou

@Anita Kumari
In my knowledge "UGC announces NET exemption cut-off date for MPhil holders in 472nd meeting" is true. I dont know about 473 meeting. You can get the Govt of Assam notification in this regard in the following page

Thanks Badan, it is very useful :-))


Hi All

Just want to share, incase someone like me is struggling for some details..


I did some R&D and found UGC minutes of meetings and gone through from 471-479 (479 is latest).

471&472 says yes, it is true that NET exemption for MPhil?Phd holders. While in 473 it is mentioned that they are seeking legal opnion as some have filed the cases against UGC norm. and now it was pending with Madras and Delhi High Court.


Then I found the decision in Madras and Delhi High Court.

"Madras High Court, in its judgment passed on December 7, 2010, re-affirmed that a pass in NET or SLET will continue to be the mandatory qualification to apply for the post of an Assistant Professor in colleges. On the other hand, Delhi High Court, while upholding the decision of UGC for appointment of Lecturers and Assistant Professors in colleges, ruled, “The courts should not venture into the academic arena, which is best suited for academicians and experts.”

Dear Sir/Madam,
My friend has M. Phil. (1989) degrees of Shivaji University. She was appointed on Probation from 2-12-2010. But University of Mumbai did not approved the appointment.Is this decision of University right? Please give answer so that she can fight in court in time.

sir if you have any documentary proof of exemption of NET for MPhil please send me .

my email id is: 

sir pl send the same to me if u get
