UGC NET examination determines eligibility for recruitment to the post of Assistant Professor and Junior Research Fellowships. NET qualified persons are also eligible to apply for jobs in public sector.
The pay scale of a Assistant Professor is Rs. 15600-39100 (Pay Band - 3) on which dearness allowance and other admissible allowances are added making it more than double of the basic pay.
However the pay is likely to be increased in central government organizations to begin with, after implementation of the seventh pay commission which is in the offing.
One can clear the examination without taking coaching by doing hard work with due sincerity and devotion and with dogged determination and focus.
