UGC ends uncertainty over NET says CBSE to conduct exam India Tv

This comes after the uncertainty over holding of the second round of the nationwide test loomed large with the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) issuing no notification for it. National Eligibility Test is a qualifying examination for college and University teachers and is also a selection procedure for award of Junior Research Fellowship (JRF).

According to sources, the proposal which is in its early phases is being considered given the amount of resources which goes into conducting the exam and the number of candidates who appear in the exam.

Now, it is learnt that the CBSE had taken up this issue with the HRD Ministry and have chose to conduct the NET exams in July. The CBSE wrote to the human resource development ministry in September, complaining that asking it to conduct various examinations that are outside its purview was creating an "extraneous burden" on it. An official notification in this regard is likely to be released on the official website.

The NET was conducted by the University Grants Commission (UGC) till 2014 after which it was handed over to the CBSE.Citing "capacity crunch", CBSE had previous year expressed its inability to conduct exam.The central board is responsible for conducting JEE Main and NEET exams for admissions to undergraduate engineering and medical courses respectively. "We had a meeting with HRD officials over the issue recently and it was decided that the board will conduct the exam in July without any delay", a senior UGC official said. Almost 5 lakh candidates will be glad to know that UGC has convinced CBSE to conduct UGC NET 2017 July session.

"The arrangement is likely to continue till the proposed National Testing Service (NTS) is set up by the government for the conduct of all exams", he added.
