ugc is giving very good salary.so the most of the management and universities are selling the Assistant professors posts for more than Rs.25,00,000 lakhs. so the quality of education will be reduced. some guides are selling the PhD. To avoid this all universities should have a panel list the guide should not know the examiner. Nowadays the friends of the guides are the examiners. should be avoided. OR the eligibility will be NET passed not the SLET.

Add one more thing, the recruitment could done by central government and the ratio of test to interview should be 80:20 so that transparency created.

paying a good salary to the assistant professor out of honest taxpayer citizen. now the question arises what is the responsibility towards nation building in term of research, new innovation, working hours, guide qualification and their expertise, proper time be given to research scholars by the guide especially female candidate and her access to guide for limited period/hours available in university/college etc. as per international working, 40 hours per week whereas Asstt Prof. are available for 15 to 20 hours max. in the institution/college/univ. it is very difficult to female scholars to access guide and she could not want to go their home or any other place and hence loose many female scholars. it is suggested the guide/prof/Asst. Prof/ be present in the univ./college/instt. for 40 hours after taking their classes/periods for doubt clearance to students/scholars.

UGC updating eligibility criteria for Assistant professor but its does not put a condition on selection process..
Such a huge salary and responsible posts are selling univeraity VC's.
This shame for india
And now we want world class universities...
With these process how will it be ossible...

Kullaya Swamy said...

Why UGC not conducting a common recruitment for assistant professors
It can recruit the talent fellows but its unable too

Kullaya Swamy said...

UGC conducting a NET exam twice a year in a very strict manner that means UGC identifying young talented fellows
But it is failing in recruit them
Great UGC
Because of UGC regulations we are unable to establish world class universities...

And at least one PhD examiner should be from abroad!
