As per the UGC NET Educational Qualification, the candidates are eligible only if they pass their master’s exam with the required percentage within 2 years from the date of the NTA UGC NET exam result.  

Apart from this, the following candidates are eligible for the exam if they belong to the categories given below:

  • In case your qualifying examinations have been delayed.

UGC NET 2024 Age Limit and Relaxations

You must check the age requirement for the UGC NET 2024 before appearing for the exam. 

Since the latest details mentioned regarding UGC NET age limit and relaxations has not been out yet, you can review the age eligibility criteria given in the previous notification as follows:  

  • As per the notification, students aiming to crack the JRF (Junior Research Fellowship), should not be more than 30 years as on the 01st December 2023 (This age limit only applies to the current cycle of the examination).  
  • While there is no upper age limit for the candidates applying for the post of Assistant Professor. 
  • As per the latest amendment, having a Ph.D. degree is now an optional qualification for the recruitment to the post of Assistant Professor. 

Hence, there are differences in criteria regarding UGC NET JRF eligibility and the required eligibility for candidates aiming for Assistant professor post while taking the UGC NET examination that aspirants should take note of.   

However, there is a certain relaxation in years when we’re talking about UGC NET qualifications for candidates of the following category as per the table below:

If you are eligible for the exam, you can check out the detailed UGC NET syllabus for Paper 1 & Paper 2 which I have provided.

UGC NET Eligibility Exemptions (for Assistant Professor)

The applicants wishing to appear for the exam can check the following exemptions in the case of UGC NET eligibility criteria for Assistant Professors: 

  • NET/SET/SLET shall remain the minimum eligibility condition for recruitment and appointment of Assistant Professors in Universities/Colleges/ Institutions.
  • The candidates who have passed the UGC/CSIR/ JRF examination prior 9 to 1989 are also exempted from appearing in NET.
  • For SET Candidates: The candidates who have cleared the States Eligibility Test (SET) accredited by UGC for Assistant Professor held prior to 1st June 2002, are exempted from appearing in NET, and are eligible to apply for Assistant Professor anywhere in India. For SET held from 1st June 2002 onwards, the qualified candidates are eligible to apply for the post of Assistant Professor only in the universities/colleges situated in the State from where they have cleared their SET.

UGC NET Subject Eligibility

Another important issue related to the UGC NET eligibility criteria section is the knowledge about the subject that you should choose to appear for in the UGC NET exam. 

  • With that said you need to make sure that the subject that you choose for the UGC NET exam matches the subject that you have done your post-graduation in. 
  • Only in the case that your subject of post-graduation doesn’t match any UGC subject, you may choose a related subject to appear for in the exam. 

So, make sure that you choose your UGC NET subject carefully. Here is the List of Net Subjects and their Codes in which an applicant can take the exam. 

Now, before moving on to discussing interesting factors like job profile, I hope I have explained to you the details about UGC NET eligibility criteria in simple yet informative manner.

UGC NET JRF Job Profile

The topic of UGC NET job profile is usually one of the most anticipated sections for the UGC NET aspirants who wish to pursue research or follow their passion to teach at a university level.  

After discussing heavy details regarding UGC NET eligibility criteria, this section will give you an insight into the various job opportunities and career growth that you would get after clearing the examination.

These are the few things I’ll cover under the UGC NET JRF Job Profile:

  • Types of Job Opportunities
  • PSUs Recruiting JRF Holders
  • Working Hours
  • Salary Expectations

Now, before we move on to discuss UGC NET job profile in detail, you can give quick look to UGC NET Cutoff that will help you assess the difficulty level of this exam as well as assist you in analyzing the trends in cutoffs in the exam from the past few years. 

UGC NET JRF Job Profile: Types of Job Opportunities

The job profile for UGC NET provides an interesting line of opportunities for candidates who are preparing to clear this exam.  

So let’s just say I am going to list the few that are aligned with the UGC NET JRF:

1. Assistant Professor – The most obvious choice of maximum students after clearing the UGC NET exam is to fulfill their dream of becoming a college professor.

After clearing NET, you are eligible to be an assistant professor in any private or government university.  

As per the latest changes, it is not important for candidates to have Ph.D. to become an Assistant Professor. The payscale depends on the university you work with. 

2. Researcher – Now if you’re one of those who always liked being the boss of your own work, being a researcher is right up your ally.

Choose a topic that you’re absolutely passionate about and that has the scope of developing into a long-term project.

You never know if you attain enough credibility in your project, you can find huge organizations that believe in your research and would provide you with enough resources and techniques to brush your skills.

3. Public Sector Job (PSU) – Most of you are unaware of the fact that many UGC NET JRF holders can go for a Public Sector Job. 

The JRF scorecard serves as a gateway to many Public Sector Jobs. 

Note: While clearing JRF is an immense subject of pride, qualifying only NET is not a short feat either and does not make much of a difference. The only difference between these two are that in JRF you get monetary scholarship. 

To gain a broad picture of the exam’s nature, you can check the comprehensive UGC NET exam pattern to do the same.  

UGC NET JRF Job Opportunities: List of PSUs

I am providing the list of all the Public Sector Organizations which recruit UGC NET JRF holders every 6 months:

S.No. Name of the PSU

9. Oil India Limited (OIL)

UGC Academic Job Portal

To help you with the job search, UGC has come out with the ‘Academic Job Portal’ on the official UGC NET website (link – https://www.ugc.ac.in/jobportal/).

The announcement about the creation of this job portal was made by the UGC through a notification/letter they had released on the 16th of June 2021. The notification states clearly, the function of the aforementioned Job portal.

The portal provides two different interfaces – one for the candidates to register, create their profile & search for jobs, and the other for the employees to register, post jobs & search for candidates.

This announcement has, in general, been welcomed by the majority of the candidates and I sincerely hope that it yields the desired results.

Morning shifts are from 8 A.M. to 1 P.M. and Evening shifts are from 1 P.M. to 5 P.M. The working time in any public sector company or any other organization would demand 8-12 hours of work.

UGC NET JRF Job Profile: Salary Expectations

Salary Expectations for UGC NET JRF Jobs

Jobs after NET JRF are very liberal in paying Perks and Emoluments for even the smallest of expenses in Government organizations.

  • Private Universities: UGC Norms for Assistant Professor Salary in Private Universities ranges from Rs.30,000-Rs.70,000 per month.
  • Government Universities: UGC Norms for Assistant Professor Salary in Government Universities ranges from Rs.55,000 – Rs.1,05,000 per month.

This was all about the UGC NET Job profile and salary of a professional after clearing the exam.

Before we conclude, you can also check the UGC NET previous year question papers which I have provided to help you familiarize with the type of questions asked in the exam as going through them thoroughly will give you an edge over others during the actual examination.

        Yes, it does not matter which subject or stream you've pursued, you can always choose any subject of your choice for UGC NET. You will just have to be well versed in the subject you choose.

    Reply

      Hello Gauri Mittal
      Yes, the salary of a candidate who has cleared NET JRF (Junior Research Fellowship) is generally higher than that of a candidate who has only cleared NET for Assistant Professor eligibility.

      Benefits of NET JRF in terms of salary:
      1. Higher Stipend: NET JRF awardees receive a higher monthly stipend during the fellowship period compared to NET-qualified candidates who opt for Assistant Professorship.
      2. Research Opportunities: NET JRF holders have the opportunity to pursue research in their chosen field, which can enhance their academic and professional profile.
      3. Duration: The tenure of NET JRF is typically limited to a specific period (e.g., 5 years) during which the candidate can avail the fellowship benefits.
      4. Career Advancement: Having NET JRF can provide a competitive edge when applying for research-oriented positions in academia and other research organizations.

      Keep in mind that the actual salary and benefits may vary depending on the policies of the funding agency and the institution where the candidate is pursuing research.

    My question is am I eligible to apply for UGC NET/ JRF/ CSIR NET/ SET exams? Is it compulsory for B Tech Graduates or Masters architects (M Arch) or Planners (M Plan) to appear for UGC NET/SET/CSIR NET Exam to qualify for asst prof jobs in universities? Are UGC NET/SET/Ph.D. minimum criteria for architects or planners for the assistant professor position in govt universities, IITs, NITs, SPAs, and State-level govt Universities?
    or GATE will be considered the minimum criterion for Engineers/ Architects or planners for asst prof jobs?
