New UGC guidelines on PHDs: universities have different takes

With the University Grants Commission (UGC) issuing a new circular relating to PhDs, some universities like the Calcutta and Burdwan universities have stopped registering new students for the doctorate courses. But others like Jadavpur University said that there was no need to panic as the universities will switch to the new rules laid down by the UGC.

“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
