Ph.D Mandatory For Assistant Professor Recruitment From 2021

The new regulation will be in place from July 2021

New Delhi:  Human Resource Development (HRD) ministry has notified that Ph.D will be mandatory for the direct recruitment of assistant professors in Indian universities. The new regulation will be in place from July 2021 and the same rule will also be applied for promotion to Assistant Professor (Selection Grade) in colleges, said a press note from the ministry.

"In order to attract and retain the best quality teachers and other academic staff in Universities and Colleges, the UGC has brought out new regulations," said HRD. 

The Regulations mandate introduction of one month induction programme for newly recruited Assistant Professors in Universities/Colleges/Higher Education Institutions. 

According to new rules, incentives to teachers as provided in the earlier Regulations of 2010 and subsequent amendments have been retained and these include incentives for MPhil/Ph.D. 

The new regulations have done away with the Academic Performance Indicator (API) based appraisal and according to HRD, a new simplified teacher evaluation grading system has been introduced and research score added for Universities to improve research output. 

The new regulation has a special provision for recruitment of Assistant Professors in Universities and Colleges for Ph.D Degree holders from a University/institution in the top 500 Global rankings. Hindustan Times reported that international rankings by Quacquarelli Symonds (QS), the Times Higher Education (THE) or the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) of the Shanghai Jiao Tong University (Shanghai) will be considered for this.

UGC had earlier released a draft regulation of Minimum Qualifications for Appointment of Teachers and Other Academic Staff in Universities & Colleges and measures for the Maintenance of Standards in Higher Education) 2018 on February 9, which invited criticism from several quarters.

UGC had sought feedback from stakeholders and general public on the Draft Regulation till February 28, 2018.
