Those candidates who have successfully passed their National Eligibility Test (NET) would get chance to apply for various jobs offered by public service undertakings. The announcement was made public by University Grants Commission which conducts the NET every year. NET is carried by UGC every year to appoint assistant professors at various higher education institutes through research fellowships provided to students. UGC would now give permission to various PSUs to use the NET result as database for any of the recruitment process it would carry forward.
In disciplines like Science (Research & Development), Management, Corporate Communications, Human resources, finance etc. there are positions of executives that remain vacant. The announcement enabling PSUs to use the UGC-NET scores would further strengthen the companies to recruit people of caliber to these esteemed positions easily. This could open up floodgates and more and more people are expected to take up the NET examinations in the years to follow. The more the number of NET candidates would pass, the better would be options getting better students for various PhD programmes in universities.
After the proposal got the nod of its chairman, the UGC gave it a final go last week. The implementation would be active very soon and keeping abreast with the announcement Indian Oil Corporation Ltd. has already issued an advertisement inviting candidates who have successfully cleared their NET for lucrative posts. The selection of the candidates would depend upon the marks obtained in the NET by the students and would provide a good opportunity for them to get a job at a better company.
