COIMBATORE: To ensure the quality of research in MPhil and PhD, the University Grants Commission (UGC) has limited the number of candidates a faculty member can guide at a time. According to the new norms, a professor cannot guide more than three MPhil and eight PhD scholars at a time. An associate professor can guide a maximum of two MPhil and six PhD scholars and an assistant professor a maximum of one MPhil and four PhD scholars.  This is part of the UGC (Minimum Standards and Procedure for Award of MPhil/PhD Degrees) Regulations 2016, which supersedes its 2009 norms allowing a faculty supervisor to guide eight PhD and five MPhil scholars. According to the new rule, while allotting a research scholar to a supervisor, the department should consider the number of scholars per supervisor and available specialisations, besides the scholar’s research interest. –  Courtesy       /       Click here to download :  UGC Gazatte Notification :  Published on 13/07/2016  : 12 pages, pdf file UGC (Minimum Standards and Procedure for Award of M.PHIL./PH.D Degrees) Regulations, 2016
