(ii) No one shall be eligible to be appointed, promoted or designated as Professor, unless he or she possesses a Ph.D. and satisfies other academic conditions, as laid down by the University Grants Commission (UGC) from time to time.

Thanks for this information

The Pay of directly recruited Professor is to be fixed at 43000/-

But where is the Fitment table for the fixation of a directly recruited Professor.

For instance what will be the new basic pay of professor who is already drawing 18650/- in old scale

There is an issue of seniority...please clarify...
According to UGC regulations who is senior?....a lecturer appointed in selection grade(2005) and later promoted to reader designate(2006) or a lecturer who is promoted to selection grade(2004) prior to the earlier mentioned lecturer but not a reader designate...?

According to ugc guideline of 2006-07 some candidates with M.Phil but no NET/SET appointed in colleges of India in regular basis with 8000-13500 scale and they also get regular increments.Most of them enrolled for PH.D also during in service.but can some state govt.try to make NET/SET compulsory for them now to get new ugc revised pay or to get further promotion in the new scale?UGC must clearly mention that those who were in service will not be affected except to maitain CAS scheme.actually i want to know about this from ugc secretary.
