UGC's strict norms on awarding MPhil, PhDs

In order to standardize the process of awarding MPhil and PhD degrees and bring about a qualitative improvement in terms of research, the University Grants Commission has initiated a way to crack down on universities awarding degrees in a haphazard manner.

All universities, including central, state, private varsities and deemed-to-be universities, are now being instructed to submit information regarding the number of PhDs and MPhils given and the manner in which they are given. All universities are expected to follow the recommendations of the UGC (Minimum Standards for Award of MPhil/PhD Degree) Regulation, 2009.

Universities have been given a time frame of four weeks to respond to questions on whether research scholars are allowed to take up actual research work after successful completion of the course work. The UGC has also sought information whether evaluation of the thesis is done by at least two experts.

One is from outside the state or country including whether the candidate has undergone viva voce examination and an open defence of the thesis and the number of publications in refereed journals. Reports have shown that some universities have not insisted on evaluation of thesis by experts from outside the state or country, citing lack of experts.
