UGC NET eligibility lowered for OBC aspirants

The University Grants Commission (UGC) has agreed to lower the eligibility criteria for OBC students undertaking the National Eligibility Test (NET) by further decreasing the minimum score to 55 per cent. The UGC NET is a qualifying paper taken by candidates who want to get into teaching for higher education institutes.

The reason cited for this relaxation is the number of OBC and SC/ST teaching positions that remain vacant at higher education institutes. There are a number of vacancies all over the nation in institutes and universities amounting to almost 40 per cent and this number is said to be in the SC/ST and OBC category. The decision was also put in motion following a court case where the matter was brought up.
