All women candidates will also be provided maternity leave and child care leave for up to 240 days once while they pursue these two degrees.

Acting on suggestions made by HRD minister Smriti Irani last week, the University Grants Commission (UGC) on Tuesday decided to relax criteria for women and disabled candidates pursuing MPhil and PhD degrees.

Women and those with more than 40% disability will now get a year extra to complete their MPhil papers and two years more to submit PhD theses. All women candidates will also be provided maternity leave and child care leave for up to 240 days once while they pursue these two degrees.

see In case a woman scholar needs to relocate because of marriage or otherwise during her study, she would be allowed to get research data transferred to the university to which she intends to shift provided all other regulatory conditions are followed and the research work does not pertain to a project secured by the parent institution or her supervisor from any funding agency. The scholar will also have to give credit to her parent guide and institution for the part of research already done.

 In another important decision, the full commission of UGC also decided that award of degrees to those registered for MPhil/PhD programmes prior to July 11, 2009 will be governed by the provisions of the then existing ordinances/bylaws/regulations and will be exempted from the requirement of the minimum eligibility condition of NET/state-level eligibility test for recruitment and appointment of assistant professor or equivalent posts in universities/colleges and other higher educational institutions subject to few conditions.
 The riders include award of PhD in regular mode only; PhD thesis should have been examined by at least two external examiners; open PhD viva voce of candidate should have been co- nducted, candidate should have published two research publications from his/her PhD work out of which at least one must have appeared in a refereed journal and candidate should have made at least two presentations in conferences/seminars based on his/her PhD work.

here Also, a college accredited with highest grades in two running cycles and also secures the highest accreditation grade in the third from NAAC will get autonomous status provided it obtains an NOC from the affiliating varsity and adheres to certain UGC norms.
