In order to strongly encourage research scholars, the University Grants Commission has reportedly hiked the basic fellowship amount as well as scholarships that was announced recently. For junior research fellowship (JRF) sources say the revised amount would be INR 25,000 per month from the earlier amount of Rs 16,000.

And for senior research fellowship (SRF),the  scholars would be getting Rs 28,000 every month compared to the earlier amount of Rs 18,000. This week the Rajya Sabha was informed about these revision in terms of grants by Union HRD minister Smriti Irani who has stated that the hike in JRF and SRF for basic sciences would be now on par with the similar fellowship amounts disbursed by the Union department of science and technology.

For humanities and social sciences, the increase is reportedly around 55 per cent.  Meanwhile the Swami Vivekananda Single Girl Child Scholarships for research in social sciences is also being raised from Rs 8000 given currently to Rs 12,400 per month during first two years and raised for Rs 10,000 to Rs 15,500 each month during third and fourth year.
