“We would advise the students to register as per the new rules. There is no need to stall registration,” said Vice-Chancellor of Jadavpur University, Pradip Narayan Ghosh.
According to Ghosh, the decision on this issue will be taken in the next executive council meeting of the university.
A few universities are talking about a smooth switchover to the new proposal of the UGC. The UGC has suggested that a university-specific entrance test be held along with stringent checking of thesis and occasional internal examinations.
ugc new rules for phd holders if the student have qualified msc biotech and phd registerd in botany so what there are having some problems?
sir, is the course work copulsory for who have also completed mphil in the consern subject. thanks
WHAT IS THE CURRENT STATUS ON PHD N MPHIL CORRESPONDANCE CAN ANY ONE GUIDE ON THIS
I dont think the decision is right. The working professional need a distant education support for higher study. The decision of UGC may have been better, if they would have limited the institutions offering the same.
What about the working professional. Do they have to leave their job at the age of 25 that too for 3 years??? . There is no need to ban atleast non-science subjects in Distance mode
No doubt UGC has finally taken a good decision but what about those students who have already taken admission in distance mode courses like M.Phil and Ph.D this year june?
It is definitely appreciated steps of Govt. to improve the status of education in India.. But In my view distance mode should be not stopped because it is an opportunity to those who want to get higher degree along with their jobs. I knew few persons who can not leave the job because they have no other source of money but have ability to get higher degree like PhD. Govt. should design the distance education courses for higher study in such a way so that quality of education should not suffer. Govt. can improve the quality of distance education by imposing a common test or other mode to test their ability or Compulsory evaluation of their PhD thesis by UGC expert.
Actually, the problem is not distance or open learning. Being a research degree, M.Phil and Ph. d should have flexibility however compulsory entrance exam, timely checking of the progressa nd minimum duration of 1 year should be there
It is a great decision. At last the Government has banned offering Ph.D. through distance education wing.But their is no proposal regarding joining Ph.D. course work of UGC approved college or university teachers in the Institutes of National Importance -IIT, ISI , etc. where course work is a must before registering for Ph.D.After registration there is Faculty Improvement Programme of UGC, but before registration there is no such programme. It is expected that the new rule for Ph.D. will bring some programme like FIP before registration for College or University teachers.
The ban is to be appreciated no doubt in it. But the new rules should be prposed soon cos there are many who have already proceeded their work but got trapped in the mid-way,not knowing what is going to happen and when.The new rules should be uniform for all. I do agree with the comment of A.Dakshinamurthy. It is really a sigh of relief. All the best
The Govt. has taken the right decision in stopping the M.Phil. holders to apply for jobs in colleges.It is strange to notice how some universities award M.phil. degrees through distance mode within six months from the time of actual admission. In Assam, many lecturers are benifitted from this scheme as they were appointed with conditions. But, it is high time, the Govt. of Assam in particular should circulate this new rules for appointment of lecturers in provincialized colleges.
The ban on offering Ph.D. and M.Phil. programs by open universities is to be appreciated by everybody.Already many universities through their distance education wing, offered M.Phil. and Ph.D.programs and awarded degrees. We know the the standard of majority of such candidates and the mode of getting things done by them. Even in regular stream, some candidates manipulated the theses written by somebody or submitted the theses written by some professional thesis writers. The decision should have been taken already. Better late than never. It gives us a sigh of relief. A.Dakshinamurthy
