UGC M. Phil / Ph. D award regulations 2009 and exemption from NET

The UGC regulation 2009 (minimum standards and procedures for award of M. Phil / Ph. D) has been published in the Gazette of India dated 11 July 2009.

The Universities will now have to follow these regulations and guidelines for award of M.Phil and Ph.D. This regulation comes into force from the date of publication in Gazette of India.

Most importantly, this regulation clearly states that M. Phil and Ph. D shall be counted for exemption from NET for UG and PG classes respectively, if the minimum standards are met. However, M.Phil and Ph.D cannot be done through Distance Education mode.
