Criteria for Awarding Junior Research Fellowships

Out of the 43957 candidates qualified for Lectureship eligibility (including JRF), 29780 candidates had applied for JRF, while the slots available for JRF are 3200. These 3200 fellowships have to be distributed among the 29780 candidates who come under the consideration zone for JRF. In order to restrict the number of JRF awardees to around 3200, a methodology has been evolved for allocation of JRF slots among different subjects categorywise.

i) The Commission provides fellowships to 3200 candidates for each UGCNET, as per the financial resources available under the budgetary head.

ii) A minimum of 27%, 22.5% and 3% of Fellowships are reserved for the OBC, SC/ST and Persons with disabilities (PWD) respectively.

iii) The calculation is based on the ratio of number of candidates who had opted for JRF and were qualified for lectureship eligibility in each subject categorywise to the total number of candidates qualified for lectureship who had opted for JRF in that category over all subjects multiplied by the total number of fellowships to be awarded to that category. The nearest whole number obtained as per this formula provides the number of slots available in any particular subject categorywise.

iv) By this method, if the number of JRF awardees obtained is less than one, it is taken as one, i.e., minimum of one JRF is awarded wherever fraction less than one is obtained as per the calculation. However, for fractions greater than one, the figure is rounded off to the nearest whole number.

v) The percentage of all the three papers corresponding to the number of JRF awardees derived as per the previous paragraph, is taken as the cutoff percentage for awarding JRF for particular subject categorywise.
