About the N E T

The National Educational Testing Bureau of University Grants Commission (UGC) conducts National Eligibility
Test (NET) to determine eligibility for lectureship and for award of Junior Research Fellowship (JRF) for Indian
nationals in order to ensure minimum standards for the entrants in the teaching profession and research. The
Test is conducted in Humanities (including languages), Social Sciences, Forensic Science, Environmental
Sciences, Computer Science and Applications and Electronic Science.

The Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) conducts the UGC-CSIR NET for other Science
subjects, namely, Life Sciences, Physical Sciences, Chemical Sciences, Mathematical Sciences and Earth
Atmospheric Ocean & Planetary Sciences jointly with the UGC. The tests are conducted twice in a year
generally in the months of June and December. For candidates who desire to pursue research, the Junior
Research Fellowship (JRF) is available for five years subject to fulfilment of certain conditions. UGC has
allocated a number of fellowships to the universities for the candidates who qualify the test for JRF. The JRFs
are awarded to the meritorious candidates from among the candidates qualifying for eligibility for lectureship in
the NET. JRFs are available only to the candidates who opt for it in their application forms.

The test for Junior Research Fellowship is being conducted since 1984. The Government of India, through its
notification dated 22nd July, 1988 entrusted the task of conducting the eligibility test for lectureship to UGC.
Consequently, UGC conducted the first National Eligibility Test, common to both eligibility for Lectureship and
Junior Research Fellowship in two parts, that is, in December 1989 and in March, 1990.
