ANSWER
MINISTER STATE O:F SOCIAL JUSTICE AND EMPOWERMENT
(SHRI  RATTAN LAL KATARIA)

(a) Yes, Sir. NET qualification criteria has been incorporated in the Scheme guidelines for the 'National Fellowship  for SCs (NFSC)'. 

As per the revised guidelines, the SC candidates who have qualified in the following tests are eligible to apply for fellowship under the scheme:

i) National Eligibility Test- Junior Research Fellowship (NET- JRF) of UGC (for Humanities/ Social Sciences); or

ii) UGC-Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (UGC-CSlR) NET-JRF Joint Test (for Science stream including Engineering & Technology).

(b) As per the extant Government's guidelines, all the ongoing schemes of the Department are required to be reviewed/ appraised at the end of each Plan period/ Finance Cycle for continuation in the next Plan period. Accordingly, the scheme of National Fellowship for SCs was evaluated and reviewed by Ministry of Social Justice & Empowerment in 2017-1 8 and a third party evaluation of the scheme was carried out by an independent  agency. One of the suggestions given by the organization in its report for better implementation of the scheme was making the selection process of students more transparent and exhaustive. Accordingly, to make the selection process more transparent and implementation of the scheme more effective, after due consultations with the University Grants Commission (UGC), the scheme guidelines of National Fellowship for SCs have been revised w.e.f. 01.04.201 8 in line with the guidelines of the UGC, which also prescribe NET qualification as one of the eligibility criteria for grant of fellowship.

[post_ads_2]

(c) Yes, Sir. Representations for removal of NET as basic eligibility criteria for the National Fellowship for SC students have been received in this Ministry.

(d) & (e): No such proposal i s under consideration in this Ministry.
