The University Grants Commission (UGC) has extended the deadline to complete their master’s degree or equivalent for candidates who had qualified for the National Eligibility Test (NET) in 2018.

“Some candidates qualified in the UGC-NET held in July 2018 or in the Joint CSIR-UGC Test held in June 2018 for eligibility for lectureship/assistant professor and junior research fellowship (JRF) under the UGC scheme, have not been able to complete their master’s degree or equivalent course due to unavoidable delays in conducting university examinations caused by COVID-19 pandemic,” the UGC said in an official notice.
