Earlier, the students were granted extension till December 31. However, the same has been extended till June 30 now but the tenure of fellowship for PhD and MPhil will remain the same–5 years.

“Due to COVID-19 pandemic, the universities have remained closed for the past several months.

“In view of the above and in the larger interest of the research scholars, a further extension of six months for terminal MPhil and PhD students, who were supposed to submit their thesis by December 31, may be granted by the universities till June 30.

“Extension of six months, as mentioned above, may also be granted for submitting evidence of publication and presentation in two conferences. However, the tenure of fellowship of MPhil and PhD will be the same (5 years),” he added.

Universities were closed in March in order to contain spread of novel coronavirus. A nationwide lockdown was announced later. The Centre has permitted phase wise reopening of varsities and colleges for research scholars and final year students while majority teaching learning activities continue to be be done online.

The decision about reopening of varsities and higher educational institutions has been left to state governments.
