100% PhD Seat Allocation for JRF UGC NET/CSIR/ICMR/ ICAR/AYUSH/DBT Candidates 'Well-Considered Policy': JNU tells Delhi High Court

Archana Shandilya

100% PhD Seat Allocation for JRF UGC NET/CSIR/ICMR/ ICAR/AYUSH/DBT Candidates 'Well-Considered Policy': Through an affidavit filed in Delhi High Court, the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) submitted that decision to allocate 100 per cent PhD seats in selected centres to JRF category candidates for the academic year 2021-22 is a “well-considered policy decision” and does not violate any law or regulation. The affidavit was filed by JNU in response to the petition filed by Students' Federation of India (SFI), JNU challenging the allocation and stated that “Allocation of 100 per cent PhD seats to JRF category candidates for the academic year 2021-22 in select centres in JNU is a well-considered policy decision made by the highest body of academic experts i.e. the Academic Council in conformity with the UGC guidelines”.

The affidavit also said that “Petitioner is seeking to dilute a conscious practical decision taken by the highest body of the Respondent i.e the Academic Council and unnecessarily raking up a non-issue with electoral undercurrents being the sole motive.” SFI said in its petition that earlier the PhD seats in seven centres of JNU were filled up through the interview of JRF category candidates as well as through the entrance exam for non-JRF candidates. However, in the current academic year 2021-22, JNU illegally, arbitrarily, unconstitutionally through its e-Prospectus decided to fill up all PhD seats through JRF category candidates in seven of the centres.
