The MPhil diploma has been deemed invalid by the College Grants Fee (UGC), accompanied by a warning to universities to stop MPhil admissions in accordance with Clause 14 of the Fee. Secretary Manish Joshi issued a notification addressing issues about some universities soliciting recent functions for the M.Phil. (Grasp of Philosophy) program.
The notification underscores that the M.Phil. diploma lacks recognition, citing Regulation No. 14 of the UGC Minimal Requirements and Procedures for Award of Ph.D. Diploma) Rules 2022, which explicitly prohibits Increased Academic Establishments from providing M.Phil. packages.
Secretary UGC highlighted that the Fee formulated the College Grants Fee (Minimal Requirements and Procedures for Award of Ph.D. Diploma) Rules, 2022, revealed within the Gazette of India on November 7, 2022.
The notification urges college authorities to promptly halt admissions to the M.Phil. program for the educational yr 2023-24. Moreover, college students are suggested towards looking for admission to the M.Phil. program.
This resolution follows the Fee’s earlier announcement that the MPhil diploma programs throughout all universities would now not maintain validity, instructing greater academic establishments to not supply MPhil packages.
All college authorities in states and Union Territories (UTs) are instructed to take fast measures to stop admissions to the MPhil program for the educational yr 2023-24.
