    Qualifying Criteria for Lectureship Eligibility is 65% in aggregate for general, 60% for OBC and 50% for SC/ST and PWD (Persons with Disabilities). Of these who meet the qualifying criteria, top 15% candidates (for each subject and category), from the merit list mentioned was declared qualified for eligibility for lectureship (LS) only. UGC provides a minimum of 3200 fellowships or JRF in each UGC-NET. A minimum of 27%, 15%, 7.5% and 3% of Fellowships are reserved for the OBC, SC, ST and PWD respectively.
    How is JRF calculated? JRF calculation is based on the ratio of number of candidates who had opted for JRF and were qualified for LS in each subject category-wise to the total number of candidates qualified for LS who had opted for JRF in that category over all subjects multiplied by the total fellowships to be awarded to that category. The nearest whole number obtained as per this formula provides the number of slots available in any particular subject category-wise. If the number of JRF awardees obtained is less than one, it is taken as one. For JRF awardees greater than one, the figure is rounded off to the nearest whole number. Percent of all the three papers corresponding to the number of JRF awardees, is taken as the cut-off percent for awarding JRF for a particular subject category-wise.
