      Hello chitra,
      Since you are pursuing masters in commerce, you will not be eligible to apply for UGC NET in management and thereby only eligible for UGC NET in commerce. If you are planning for higher studies in the future by pursuing phd, it will be better for you to apply in commerce as it is your subject for post graduation as well. To get in depth information regarding the same,you can contact on this number 9999466225.

    I am doing PGDM in Material Management sem 3,
    Can i apply for UGC NET Management Paper 2 .

      Hello Brijesh,
      You need to confirm with your PGDM institute whether your degree is equivalent to a Master's degree or not.
      If it is equivalent to a Master's then you can attempt UGC NET exam.
      If it is not equivalent, you can still attempt the exam but UGC will not give you the certification for the exam.
      You can watch this video for a better understanding about this:

      Hi Rajat,
      You are not eligible for UGC NET examination. Because MTECH candidates cannot apply for UGC NET. You are eligible for CSIR.
