Although stereotypical depictions suggest research is conducted in laboratories, it is actually performed in virtually all subjects- from English to Physics, from health sciences to history, from chemistry to criminal justice. Different methods are employed but at its most fundamental level research seeks to expand understanding.

Unless such a climate prevails, it is difficult to achieve excellence in our higher education system. With students, teachers and management being co-partners in raising the quality of higher education, it is imperative that they share this major responsibility. Hence, the Education Commission (1964-66) recommended college autonomy, which, in essence, is the instrument for promoting academic excellence. Objectives and salient features: Determine and prescribe its own courses of study and syllabi, and restructure and redesign the courses to suit local needs, make them skill-oriented and in consonance with the job requirements; Prescribe rules for admission in consonance with the reservation policy of the state government/national policy; Promote research in relevant fields; Evolve methods of assessment of students performance, conduct of examinations and notification of results; Use modern tools of educational technology to achieve higher standards and greater creativity; and Promote healthy practices such as community service, extension activities, projects for the benefit of the society at large, neighbourhood programmes, Scheme of Autonomous Colleges was formulated by the UGC during the Fourth Five year Plan (1969-73) in pursuance of the recommendations of Education Commission (1964-66). SCOPE:Autonomy granted to the Institution is Institutional and covers all courses at all levels. The courses introduced by the Institution after the conferment of autonomous status shall automatically come under the purview of autonomy. Following the approval of the conferment of the autonomous status to the college, the parent university will issue a notification within 30 days of receipt of the letter of approval from University Grants Commission. The University will confer the degrees to the students of the Autonomous Colleges. However, the certificates of the students will have the name of the Autonomous College inscribed on the certificates. Necessary amendments if required by the universities in their Rules and Regulations, etc. will be effected by the parent All colleges (of any discipline) under Section 2(f) of the UGC Act, whether aided, partially aided or unaided/self-financing, are eligible to apply for autonomous status; The colleges can apply for autonomy after they have completed minimum 10 years of existence; The college must have valid NAAC accreditation with a minimum of A Grade for being considered for fresh induction /extension of autonomous status; In respect of Engineering/Technical/Management Colleges, current NBA accreditation for at least three courses is mandatory;Annual Report 2016-2017190 For existing autonomous college before they seek extension of autonomous status they must be accredited with A Grade by NAAC; Colleges which were accredited with A Grade by NAAC earlier and seek extension of the autonomous status must give proof of having applied for accreditation by NAAC/NBA to be considered. However, the extension will be subject to the college getting reaccredited with A Grade by NAAC alongwith approval by NBA for atleast three courses in case of Engineering/Technical/Management Colleges; In case of constituent colleges the same may undergo for separate accreditation by NAAC to be considered; The colleges which have only NBA accreditation must undergo NAAC accreditation within 2 years of conferment of the autonomous status; and The number of contractual faculty shall not be more than 10% of the total number of faculty position in the college as required under the UGC Regulations on Minimum Qualifications for appointment of Teachers and other Academic Staff in Universities and Colleges and Measures for the Maintenance of Standards in Higher Education, 2010, as amended from time to time.

National Eligibility Test out sourced to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to determine eligibility for Assistant Professorship and Junior Research Fellowships (JRF) in order to ensure minimum standards for the entrants in the teaching profession and research in several subjects of Humanities (including Indian and some foreign languages), Social Sciences, Computer Science and Applications, Electronic Science, Forensic Science and Environmental Sciences. The Test is conducted twice every year in the months of June and December in 80 subjects (excluding Paper-I) in 90 cities spread across the country. The University Grants Commission started conducting National Eligibility Test, specifically known as UGC-NET, for award of Junior Research Fellowships in 1984 to ensure greater comparability as well as higher degree of validity and reliability in the field of research. Subsequently, as a consequence of National Education Policy adopted in 1986 and the recommendations of the Mehrotra Committee for the pay scales of the University/College teachers, this examination was also used as an instrument for declaring the candidates eligible for Assistant Professorship in Indian universities/colleges from the year 1989 onwards. Earlier the UGC was holding this Test in Sciences as well as in Social Sciences including Humanities and languages. At the same time, the CSIR was also conducting a Test in the core science subjects. In order to avoid duplication of efforts in science subjects, the UGC intervened and entered into an understanding with the CSIR to select candidates for UGC as well. Since then, UGC has been conducting UGC-NET in Humanities and Social Sciences, Computer Science and Applications, Electronic Science, Forensic Science and Environmental Sciences, whereas the CSIR is conducting it in 5 core science subjects, viz., Chemical Sciences; Earth, Atmospheric, Ocean and Planetary Sciences; Life Sciences; Mathematical Sciences and Physical Sciences under the Joint CSIR-UGC NET, also in the months of June and who desire to pursue research and avail fellowship from the UGC, can opt to appear for Junior Research Fellowship (JRF) either under the UGC-NET or under the Joint CSIR-UGC NET. The candidates with higher merit who qualify for JRF, can pursue research in the UGC recognized universities and institutions. They are also eligible for being considered for the post of Assistant Professor in the universities and colleges. Upwards of 3200 JRFs is awarded by the UGC under each UGC-NET and around 1200 JRFs (subject to overall performance of candidates) through each Joint CSIR-UGC NET. Fellowship is available for a maximum period of five the UGC-NET held in July,2016, 3578 candidates were declared eligible for Junior Research Fellowship, while in the UGC-NET held in January, 2017, 3640 candidates have been declared eligible for Junior Research Report 2016-2017202Performance in (a) : UGC-NETA brief overview of candidates registered, appeared and qualified for eligibility for lectureship (Assistant Professorship) and Junior Research Fellowship (JRF) in the UGC-NET is presented in Table (a).Table (a): UGC NET : Number of Candidates Registered, Appeared and Qualified during the Year 2016-2017UGC-NETRegisteredAppearedQualifiedNumberPercentage from RegisteredNumberPercentage from Appeared(%)(%)10th July, 2016Eligibility for Assistant Professor (including JRF) Research Fellowship (JRF) January, 2017Eligibility for Assistant Professor (including JRF) Research Fellowship (JRF) *UDSK D 8*& 1(7 1XPEHU RI &DQGLGDWHV 5HJLVWHUHG $SSHUDUHG DQG 3DVVHG GXULQJ WKH \HDU 7899104926687943014818115565133610505605233555392180535782238136400100000200000300000400000500000600000700000800000900000Eligibility for AssistantProfessor (including JRF)Junior Research Fellowship(JRF)Eligibility for AssistantProfessor (including JRF)Junior Research Fellowship(JRF)10th July, 201622nd January, 20171XPEHU RI &DQGLGDWHVPassedAppearedRegistered Graph (a) : UGC NET : Number of Candidates Registered, Appeared and Passed during the year 2016-17203Quality & ExcellenceSubjects in which UGC-NET is conducted are given below Table (a)(i):Table (a)(i) : Name of the subject Sl. of the Subject1Economics2Political Science3Philosophy 4Psychology5Sociology 6History7Anthropology8Commerce 9Education 10Social Work 11Defence and Strategic Studies12Home Science13Public Administration14Population Studies15Music 16Management 17Maithili18Bengali19Hindi20Kannada21Malayalam22Oriya23Punjabi24Sanskrit25Tamil26Telugu27Urdu28Arabic29English 30Linguistics31Chinese32Dogri33Nepali34Manipuri35Assamese36Gujarati37Marathi38French39Spanish40Russian41Persian42Rajasthani43German44Japanese45Adult Education/ Continuing Education/ Andragogy/ Non Formal EducationSl. of the Subject46Physical Education47Arab Culture and Islamic Studies48Indian Culture 49Labour Welfare/Personnel Management/Industrial Relations/ Labour and Social Welfare/Human Resource Management50L aw51Library and Information Science52Buddhist, Jaina, Gandhian and Peace Studies53Comparative Study of Religions54Mass Communication and Journalism55Performing Arts Dance/Drama/Theatre56Museology & Conservation57Archaeology58Criminology59Tribal and Regional Language/Literature60Folk Literature61Comparative Literature62Sanskrit Traditional Subjects (including Jyotisha/Sidhanta Jyotisha/ Navya Vyakarna/ Vyakarna/ Mimamsa/ Navya Nyaya/ Sankhya Yoga/ Tulanatmaka Darsana/ Shukla Yajurveda/ Madhva Vedanta/ Dharma Sastra/ Sahitya/ Purana-itihasa/Agama/Advaita Vedanta) 63Women Studies64Visual Arts (including Drawing & Painting/Sculpture/ Graphics/Applied Art/History of Art)65Geography66Social Medicine & Community Health67Forensic Science68Pali69Kashmiri70Konkani71Computer Science and Applications72Electronic Science73Environmental Sciences74International and Area Studies75Prakrit76Human Rights and Duties77Tourism Administration and Management78Bodo79Santali80YogaAnnual Report (b) Joint CSIR UGC NETTable (b)(i) depicts the core science subjects in which the Joint the CSIR-UGC NET is conducted by CSIR and Table (b)(ii) shows the number of candidates qualified for JRF and eligibility for Lectureship through Joint CSIR-UGC NET.

Even, while compiling the result for Junior Research Fellowship (JRF), this principle is kept under consideration and it is ensured that the subject-wise final qualifying cut-offs for the under-privileged categories are lower than that for the General (d) : Initiatives to promote transparencyThe University Grants Commission, in its constant endeavour to promote transparency, undertook various measures to make the examination and evaluation process more interactive and less prone to subjectivity. These measures are outlined in the following paragraphs:a) Paper-III, which was descriptive in nature till Dec. 2011 UGC-NET, was converted to objective mode from June 2012 UGC-NET onwards. This ensures parity in evaluation and obviates any possibility of subjectivity in assessing the ) The candidates were not allowed to carry away the question papers with them till UGC-NET held in December 2011. In consonance with its policy of openness, the UGC took a decision to permit candidates to take away the question papers from June 2012 UGC-NET onwards. c) UGC modified its OMR Sheet in order to accommodate a carbonless copy of sheet with it. The candidates can take the carbonless copies of OMR sheets with them from June 2012 UGC-NET onwards. d) Since June 2012 UGC-NET, the answer-keys of all the question papers are in public domain as they are uploaded on the UGC website. The candidates, having access to answer keys, question papers and carbonless copies of their OMR sheets, are enabled to check their answers. Online feedback is invited from candidates for more than a week regarding any discrepancies in the questions or any incorrect answers after uploading the answer keys and question papers. The feedback received from the candidates is re-examined by the expert committees and answer keys get updated accordingly. The result is prepared on the basis of updated answer keys. e) In a first, the University Grants Commission has taken a landmark decision that the candidates having any grievances with regard to answer key(s) even after declaration of result of UGC-NET, could send a written request to the Head, UGC-NET Bureau, South Campus, University of Delhi, Benito Juarez Marg, New Delhi-110021, supporting their stand with standard books / literature along with a demand draft of `5000/- in favour of Secretary, UGC, within one month from the date of declaration of result. This unique practice was commenced from June, 2013 UGC-NET. Since UGC had modified the structure (descriptive to objective) of Paper-III from June 2012 UGC-NET onwards, the candidates with similar grievances in June 2012 and December 2012 examinations were also provided this opportunity to file their grievances. The request(s) so received were placed before the Expert Committee(s) for examination of grievances. The respective committees for concerned subjects examined the grievances of the candidates and wherever required, updated the answer keys. Accordingly, the UGC has processed the data in the light of changed key(s) and qualified the additional candidates for JRF and/or eligibility for Assistant Professor Annual Report 2016-2017206as per already approved cut-off percentage for the concerned subjects. The result of previously qualified candidates for JRF and/or eligibility for Assistant Professor remained unchanged. The subject-wise cum category-wise qualifying cut-offs for JRF and eligibility for Assistant Professor already approved for the above mentioned three UGC-NET remained unaltered. This practice has been continued for June 2014 UGC-NET and CBSE has been requested to follow the (e) : Recognition of UGC-NET Qualified Candidates in Public SectorThe UGC-NET has come to be recognized as an authentic source of talent pool in the last few years; being viewed with prestige among public sector undertakings of the Government of India. The University Grants Commission has been formally approached by a few premier government bodies, namely:i) Indian Oil Corporation Limited ii) Oil and Natural Gas Commission (ONGC)iii) Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL)iv) Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limitedv) Bharat Heavy Electrical LimitedPower Grid Corporation of India Limited to utilize the data of UGC-NET scores for recruiting its officers in some disciplines.

He was the chief disciple of Saint Ramakrishna Paramhansa. In a short life span of just 39 years, he introduced Vedanta and Yoga to the western world. Swamiji stressed on different aspects of religion, education, character building and social issues pertaining to India. Swami Vivekananda believed that Education is a manifestation of perfection already in men . To him education was not a mere collection of information, but is more meaningful. He stressed that education should be man-making, life-giving and character-building. Education is assimilation of noble ideas. He stressed the need to combine dynamic and scientific attitude of the West with the spirituality of our country. In women education he emphasizes on fearlessness. Swami Vivekananda considered women to be incarnation of power and asked men to respect them in every way. He believed that the nation can move forward only when the women of the country secure a respectable place. He considered men and women to be equal. He was of the view that women, just like men should be allowed to enjoy freedom, independence and responsibility. The government of India is giving special benefits for families having a single girl child. Promotion of single girl child in the family means promoting girls in the society, increasing sex ration in favour of women and promoting small family norm in the society. Keeping Swami Vivekananda s ideas of women education and to achieve and promote girls education, the UGC has introduced Swami Vivekananda Fellowship for Single Girl Child for research in Social Sciences with an aim to compensate direct costs of higher education especially for such girls who happen to be the only girl child in their (vi) : Statewise Number Fellowships awarded to Persons with disabilities : 2016-17Graph (vi) : Statewise Number of National Fellowships awarded to Persons with disabilities : 2016-17115142 21951351069159412168362150510152025303540Andhra PradeshAssamBiharChhattisgarhDelhiGoaGujaratHaryanaHimachal PradeshJammu and KashmirJharkhandKarnatakaKeralaMadhya PradeshMaharashtraOdishaPunjabRajasthanTamil NaduTelanganaUttar PradeshUttarakhandWest Bengal Number of Fellowships awardedAnnual Report 2016-2017244Fellowship @ `25,000/- per month for initial two years (JRF),@ `28,000/- per month for the remaining tenure Contingency@ `10,000/- per annum for initial two years @ `20,500/- per annum for remaining three / Reader Assistance@ `2,000/- per month in case of physically and visually challenged (vii) State wise number of fellowship awarded for the year 2017-18 under the scheme of Swami Vivekananda Single Girl Child Fellowship for Research in Social Sciences during financial year 2016-17S. of selected Candidate1 Andhra Pradesh62 Assam23 Delhi54 Gujarat35 Himachal Pradesh26 Jammu and Kashmir37 Karnataka48Kerala119 Madhya Pradesh310 Maharashtra711 Meghalaya1S. of selected Candidate12 Odisha113 Puducherry114 Punjab715 Rajasthan516 Tamil Nadu1617 Telangana218Uttar Pradesh1119 Uttarakhand320 West Bengal28 Grand Total121Graph (vii) : Statewise Number of Swami Vivekanand Fellowship in Social Sciences for single Girl ChildAn Expenditure of ` lakhs was incurred during the year 2016-17*UDSK YLL 6WDWHZLVH 1XPEHU RI 6ZDPL 9LYHNDQDQG )HOORZVKLS LQ 6RFLDO 6FLHQFHV IRU VLQJOH *LUO &KLOG 625323411371117516211328051015202530Andhra PradeshAssamDelhiGujaratHimachal PradeshJammu and KashmirKarnatakaKeralaMadhya PradeshMaharashtraMeghalayaOdishaPuducherryPunjabRajasthanTamil NaduTelanganaUttar PradeshUttarakhandWest Bengal Number of Fellowships awarded245Promotion of (viii) BSR Fellowship (RFSMS)The Research Fellowship in Sciences for Meritorious Students BSR (RFSMS) under the Scheme of the UGC is open to candidates who are selected for registering to the programme of the university through a procedure outlined already in the UGC notification by a regular admission procedure.

(viii) Establishment of Centers in Universities for Study of Social Exclusion and Inclusive Policy Social exclusion not only generates tension, violence and disruption, but also perpetuates inequality and deprivation in Society. In India, certain communities such as Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and religious minorities experience systemic exclusion in the matter of taking advantages of development. Social exclusion is a complex and multidimensional concept having social, cultural, political and economic ramifications. The consequences of macroeconomic themes such as poverty, unemployment and involuntary migration exclude the victims from economic, cultural, and political activities. The primary space where exclusion can be studied, understood, and first transcended, are our universities, which can and must act as a beacon for society. The UGC has therefore decided to support research on the issue of social exclusion, which has theoretical as well as policy importance. The idea is to establish a number of teaching cum-research Centres in Universities to pursue these UGC provides financial assistance (Recurring and Non Recurring) on 100% basis to the selected universities for proper functioning of the (vii) : Number of Beneficiaries : Universities/Colleges : Equal Opportunity Cell : 2016-17 *UDSK YLL 1XPEHU RI %HQHILFLDULHV 8QLYHUVLWLHV &ROOHJHV (TXDO 2SSRUWXQLW\ &HOO 1214051362872084547122116050100150200250 300350400450500CRO, BhopalERO, KolkataNERO, GuwahatiSERO, HyderabadSWRO, BangaloreWRO, PuneNRCB, New DelhiCENTRAL/DEEMED UNIVERSITYSTATE UNIVERSITY Number of Equal Opportunity Cell in Universities / Colleges Annual Report 2016-2017274 Since the inception of this Scheme, the UGC has established 35 centres in different Universities.
