MPhil AND PhD STUDENTS GRANTED SIX MONTHS EXTENSION BY UGC

Mphil and PhD students are granted six months extension by UGC for the completion of their thesis. Hence, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this extension is being made. Educational institutions are closed for past 9 months making the students incapable of submitting the thesis. The students were granted an extension till 30th December by UGC earlier. However, the extension for thesis submission has now been extended up till 30th June 2021. However, the college tenure for MPhil and PhD students will remain to be a 5-year program.

Reasons for MPhil PhD extensions by UGC:

Universities have been closed for a long time now. Students require access to the college laboratories for their experimentations and research work. They even need access to the college library for writing their theory. However, in the current Covid-19 situations, no such task is possible. Hence, these students are unable to perform the required research for their thesis. Rajnish Jain, the UGC Secretary says, ” The students are helpless without the required access.”

The University Grants Commission(UGC) had announced the new academic calendar on 29th April owing to the pandemic situation. Hence, the PhD and MPhil students were guided to submit their thesis by December 2020. However, the subsequent lockdown situations have not yet improved and access into the university is still prohibited.

UGC ISSUES GUIDELINES FOR NATIONWIDE REOPENING OF UNIVERSITIES

New guidelines for the MPhil and PhD students by UGC:

Owing to the current situations, the University Grants Commission(UGC) has granted another 6 months now. Hence, the thesis of MPhil and PhD student will now be submitted on 30th June 2021. The Covid-19 times are very tough and also going unexpectedly long. The Centre has also allowed a phased return of MPhil and PhD students. Hence, the state governments are to seek the decision of reopening universities for final year research scholars.
