Changing eligibility

 This is regarding the recent advertisement of posts in SKUAST-K. The administration has once again put future of meritorious candidates at stake by changing eligibility.
The administration has left MSc+NET holders as ineligible which otherwise are as per ICAR guidelines to favour their non NET PhD holders at the time when every university is trying to make NET mandatory.
As per Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) guidelines the eligibility of assistant professor is thus.
For the candidates having Master's degree, NET shall remain compulsory along with one publication in NAAS (National Academy ofAgricultural Sciences. New Delhi) rated refereed journal for recruitment to the post of Assistant Professor and equivalent in the disciplines in which NET is conducted.
Essentiality of NET can be waved off for the candidates holding Ph.D degree provided it has been done with course work as prescribed by the UGC Regulations 2009, and the candidate has at least two full length publications having a NAAS rating not less than 4, on the date of last submission of application. Those candidates with Ph.D. degree without course work will not qualify for NET exemption. Further, this will be implemented with perspective date i.e. January 01, 2012. It is also decided that those universities which fail to implement NET essentiality as per above provision, will not get development grants from ICAR."
The SKUAST-K has changed eligibility as
i. a. Master’s degree with minimum 55% marks or equivalent grade in OGPA or equivalent postgraduate qualification in the concerned subject.
b. Ph.D degree (with course work) in concerned subject as prescribed by the UGC Regulations 2009
c. NET or at least two full length publications having a NAAS rating not less than 4, on the last date of submission of application.
ii. a. Master’s degree with 55% marks or equivalent grade in OGPA or equivalent postgraduate qualification in the concerned subject
b. Ph.D degree (without course work) in the concerned subject
c. NET 
By this SKUAST-K has rendered NET meaningless only to adjust blue eyed candidates who will  never qualify NET.
