This seems to be a good opportunity for the students who have got good score in their Post Graduation courses.
Students who have completed their Post Graduation in Science, Engineering, and Humanities etc and are waiting for a suitable job opportunity can consider for applying for PhD program in the core subject of their choice as that would make them eligible for applying for the post of lecturer in various colleges and universities without going through the route of qualifying examination that is national level NET exam.
