To Whomsoever May It Concern

1] On the issue of NIRF, I feel the UGC will have to be extra careful in entitling and empowering the beneficiaries on the basis of their ranking scores. Today's newspapers carry a press conference briefing wherein  the BAMU Vice Chancellor has launched diatribe against the mechanism of NIRF. He states that he and his University provided honest information and got a position between 100 and 150 whereas Savitribai Phule Pune University did some clever glossing over and window-dressing to get a rank within 10! This needs serious examination and scrutiny of the entire NIRF scheme to use it as a means to offer concessions and entitlements by the UGC and the MHRD.

2] The very idea of basing Ph.D. enrolments solely on NIRF ranking and the NET qualification, appears immature. First, the purpose and methodology of NIRF and the purpose are different. NET was basically to tap the teaching talents for colleges. For reasons yet not clear, the JRF test was harnessed for the purpose, in which many modifications have been made, since.

Second; the linkage of Ph.D. to NET appears to have been done keeping solely the  faculty needs of the educational institutions; but there can be some scholars and scientists working free-lance or with labs, companies and independently as professionals and might be interested in pursuing a doctoral project. Their interests seem to have been ignored in this. In fact, this group of scholars bring the real value in the academic value chain and the national talent capital.

Submitted for a considered discussion.
