UGC NET conducts examination two times every year for the post of Assistant Professor and JRF Scholarship. For July exam the online forms are filled in the month of April, but this year it is not yet being declared. After reports emerged about the UGC NET July 2017, through which university and college teachers are recruited may face temporary suspension. Various student organizations demanding to immediately issue application forms for the NET examination which is due this July. The members of All India Students Association (AISA) protested in front of University Grants Commission(UGC) and demanded clarification in the issue from the higher education body.
Every year about 5 lakh students give this examination. It an important exam to settle up their future. Students are preparing for it and the government is doing this. The things like this demotivate the students to study higher. So, such things should be avoided by the government.
“Thousands of aspirants, who are waiting for CBSE UGC NET notification, are tiresome and mentally exhausted. CBSE should understand the jittery situation and announce the tentative timeline for notification and announcement of January 2017 session results too”, said Students Islamic Organisation (SIO) President, Nahas Mala.
Earlier, Mr. Nahas said in a press statement, ” The University Grants Commission tried to end Non-NET Fellowship which assists students to engage in research & knowledge creation. It was an onslaught on financial assistance to pursue education”.
“Shortage of faculty has been a big hurdle in ensuring quality education, the availability of adequate and qualified faculty is a prerequisite for quality education. In a recently concluded parliamentary session, HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar had said, “Majority of vacancies in Universities would be filled up this year”. In such a circumstance, delaying or suspending exams may lead to annoyance among student community”, he added.
