Arbitrary cut off in NET June 2012 Exam
UGC is taking NET (National Eligibility Test) exam twice a year for lectureship positions all over India. According to the original notification and trends in last few years, criteria for passing NET has been 40%, 40%, and 50% in paper 1, 2 and 3 respectively for gen students. Their last minute specification (after publishing the result) that an aggregate of 65 per cent (an arbitrary and discriminatory cut off) in three papers was necessary for qualification for general category candidates has demolished the wishes of more than 100000 wishes all over. UGC declared the criteria after the declaration of the result which is totally unlawful and breach to the constitutional right to equality.
