The Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) conducts the UGC-CSIR NET for other Science subjects, namely, Life Sciences, Physical Sciences, Chemical Sciences, Mathematical Sciences and Earth Atmospheric Ocean & Planetary Sciences jointly with the UGC. The tests are conducted twice in a year generally in the months of June and December. For candidates who desire to pursue research, the Junior Research Fellowship (JRF) is available for five years subject to fulfillment of certain conditions. UGC has allocated a number of fellowships to the universities for the candidates who qualify the test for JRF. The JRFs are awarded to the meritorious candidates from among the candidates qualifiying for eligibility for lectureship in the NET. JRFs are available only to the candidates who opt for it in their application forms.

1)The candidates who qualify for the award of Junior Research Fellowship are eligible
to pursue research in the subject of their post-graduation or in a related subject and
are also eligible for Lectureship.  The universities, institutions, IITs and other national
organizations may select the JRF awardees for whole time research work in
accordance with the procedure prescribed by them. The award of JRF will depend on
the performance of the candidate in  NET. However, the candidates qualifying
exclusively for Lectureship will not be considered for award of JRF. Candidates
appearing in  NET should clearly specify in the prescribed Application Form whether
they are applying for both JRF & eligibility for Lectureship OR only for eligibility for
Lectureship. Candidates who qualify the Test for eligibility for Lectureship will be
governed by the rules and regulations for recruitment of Lecturers of the concerned
universities/colleges/state governments, as the case may be.  
Scheduled Caste (SC)/Scheduled Tribe (ST)/Visually Handicapped (VH)/Physically  Handicapped (PH) candidates will be given such special concessions as may be  decided by the Commission.  
Candidates qualifying for the award of Junior Research Fellowship will be eligible to  receive fellowship of UGC under various schemes, subject to finding their placement
in universities/IITs/institutions.  The validity period of the offer is two years w.e.f. the date of issue of JRF Award Letter.  However, in case the candidates have already joined M.Phil/Ph.D., the date of commencement of fellowship shall be from the date  of declaration of NET result or date of their joining, whichever is later.   


i) Candidates who have secured at least 55% marks (without rounding off) in Master’s Degree OR equivalent examination from universities/institutions recognised by UGC in Humanities (including languages) and Social Sciences, Computer Science & Applications, Electronic Science etc. are eligible for this Test. The Scheduled Caste (SC)/Scheduled Tribe (ST)/Physically Handicapped (PH)/Visually Handicapped (VH) category candidates who have secured at least 50% marks (without rounding off) in Master’s degree or equivalent examination are eligible for this Test.

ii) Candidates who have appeared OR will be appearing at the qualifying Master’s degree (final year) examination and whose result is still awaited OR candidates whose qualifying examinations have been delayed may also apply for this Test. However, such candidates will be admitted provisionally and shall be considered eligible for award of JRF/Lectureship eligibility only after they have passed their Master’s degree examination or equivalent with at least 55% marks (50% in case of SC/ST/PH/VH category candidates). Such candidates must complete their P.G. degree examination within two years from the date of NET result with required percentage of marks, failing which they shall be treated as disqualified.
