DU council exempts PhD degree holders before 2009 from having NET eligibility
DU’s academic council in its meeting on Monday exempted PhD degree holders before 2009 from NET eligibility while approving a sub-committee’s recommendations for recruitment of teachers with minor change.
University’s sub-committee had recommended 50:30:20 formula for recruitment. As per the Formula, 25 marks each, total 50 marks, were fixed for academic record and research criteria, 20 marks for teaching and 10 marks for domain knowledge, while 20 marks for Interview.
The Council merged academic record and research marks to total 50 marks, said Council member Prof Hansraj Suman.
“The members also approved exempting candidates with PhD degree prior to 2009, from having NET eligibility,” he said.
Such candidates will, however, have to submit two published research papers, he added.
The meeting continued in the night with discussions on criteria for promotion of teachers.
“No final decision was taken on promotion criteria and their was likelihood of formation of a committee for further deliberation,” Prof Suman said.
The decisions taken by the Academic Council will have to be approved by DU’s Executive Council before implementation.
