The new NET (National Eligibility Test) guidelines set by the UGC (University Grants Commission) for university and college lectureships has been declared illegal by the Kerala High court.

With regards to a batch of petitions that were filed against these norms, the Kerala High Court  spoke of the UGC’s actions as unfair, improper and unreasonable and accused it of misusing its power. 

The court also assured all those who scored the minimum marks prescribed in the notification that they had cleared the NET. The court has promised a follow-up, with the appropriate action necessary, to ensure that all these students receive their pass certificates within a month.Most students’ expectations were dampened, after the change in guidelines, when the exam Results were announced.

The new norms laid by UGC have set a minimum aggregate score of 65 percent for the general category, 60 per cent for OBC (Other Backward Class) category and 55 per cent for SC/ST (Scheduled Caste /Scheduled Tribe) students in all the 3 papers of the NET.  A candidate, who fails to clear those scores, will not be eligible for a university and college lectureship.

The previous norms were considerably more relaxed; candidates from the general category had to score 40 per cent in Paper 1 and 2 with an aggregate of 50 per cent in Paper 3. For SC/ST students it was 35, 35, and 40 while OBC candidates had to score 35, 35, and 45 in all the 3 papers of NET.

Students, who appeared for NET in June, 2012 also opposed the new norms.
