Pune University Set to Hike Stipends of PhD Students

Pune University

The Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU) is all situated to present unique partnerships for its main 100 Phd understudies, keeping pace with those of different top groups of advanced education, in the same way as University Grants Commission (UGC) and Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR). The choice takes after the Central government’s late advertisement of the most elevated ever climb — 50 for every penny — in partnerships for exploration researchers the nation over.

Research researchers who break the National Eligibility Test (NET), get a Junior Research Fellowship (JRF) which is going to increment from the flow Rs 16,000 to Rs 25,000 for every month, while the Senior Research Fellowship (SRF) will increment from momentum Rs 18,000 to Rs 28,000 for every month, to finish Phds as per a late declaration made by Union Minister of State for Science and Technology, Jitendra Singh.

SPPU’s measure

In SPPU there is an enormous hole in associations between understudies who are seeking after Phd after NET and the individuals who are seeking after it in the wake of clearing the Phd Entrance Test (PET) of the college. PET qualified understudies are at present accepting stipends in the scope of simply Rs 5,000 to Rs 8,000 for every month, which is not in any case 50% of that of JRF or SRF awardees.

Dr W N Gade, bad habit chancellor of SPPU, said, “The University has proposed another partnership program under which upwards of 100 Phd understudies will get associations keeping pace with UGC and CSIR. These associations will be for the time of no less than four years to finish their Phd.”

He included, “There will be a different passage test, through which 100 understudies will be chosen focused around their legitimacy for this new association. This new program will be presented in no time. The college will make money related procurements for it from its own particular stores.”

Out of an aggregate 4,800 examination understudies in SPPU, almost 400 are NET qualified. Some are not qualified for any association as they are working some place. Around 2,400 get the varsity’s stipend of Rs 5,000 to Mphil understudies and Rs 8,000 for Phd understudies in the wake of qualifying under PET.

“At present the college is giving partnerships under the Rs 10 crore award it had gotten from UGC. The new proposed partnership system guarantees that at any rate beat 100 understudies will get partnerships keeping pace with JRF and SRF. We are attempting to expand the stipends of remaining understudies also,” Dr V B Gaikwad, Director of Board of College and University Development (BCUD) said.


Research understudies who are now getting cooperations from UGC or CSIR are more than upbeat as their stipend is going to increment by 50 for every penny. “I had finished my Phd in SPPU and now I am doing post-doctorate research. According to the new change now I will get in any event R36,000 for every month against the prior Rs 28,000.

I am very fulfilled by this new trek,” Swapnil Gaikwad (33) exploration researcher connected with SPPU’s Biotechnology division said. An alternate understudy said, “NET qualified JRF and SRF awardees are not confronting any monetary demands. Varsity ought to give careful consideration to remaining understudies who are getting negligible sums as stipend.
