Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) on Integrated PhD Programme
(1) What is the amount of Fellowship?
Fellowship of Rs 10,000.00 per month will be given in the first two
years if a student commits to be in the programme till the completion
of PhD degree. On successful completion of the first two years'
academic programme and clearing the comprehensive examination for the
PhD Programme, the students will be awarded a Junior Research
Fellowship and HRA, if applicable.
(2) Is hostel mandatory?
Yes, hostel is mandatory for the first two years.
(3) Is there any exit Policy after Masters degree?
The Senate in its recent meeting has decided to abolish the exit
option, because the Integrated PhD programme cannot be seen as an
avenue of doing a paid master's degree. However, since the 2019 batch
was not informed about this policy change, they will be allowed to
exercise option of reserving right to quit the programme after
master's (in which case they will not get Fellowship).
