More About UGC-NET

In early eighties, it was increasingly felt by public and leading educationists  that quality of education system in India has deteriorated as a large number of people who had neither the competence nor the aptitude for teaching made an easy entry into the teaching profession. The cause for this was identified to be the absence of a Benchmark Qualifying test for entering into teaching profession.

Therefore, the Government on India, through a notification on 22 July, 1988 entrusted the task of conducting the eligibility test for Lectureship to UGC. UGC was already conducting an examination for Junior Research Fellowship (JRF) since 1984. As a result of this notification in 1988, UGC is conducting the National Eligibility Test (UGC-NET) for Lectureship as well as with CSIR (CSIR-UGC NET) for both Lectureships as well as for Junior Research Fellowship (JRF) since 1989.

From 14 June, 2006, if you want to join the teaching profession as a lecturer in any of the UGC sponsored universities or Institutes or colleges, it is a must for you to qualify in the NET exam except if you are a Ph.D. degree holder (for PG level and UG level teaching) or a M.Phil degree holder (for UG level teaching only).
