The University Grants Commission (U.G.C.), New Delhi, while prescribing the revised pay scale for teachers in colleges and in universities, in accordance with the SIXTH Pay Commission, has prescribed that a person being appointed as lecturer shall qualify for the new scales provided he/she clears, the Eligibility Test, to be conducted by the U.G.C., in addition to the minimum qualifications already prescribed. The U.G.C., accordingly conducts, the National Eligibility Test (N.E.T.), for almost all the subjects twice a year. The U.G.C. and the C.S.I.R.(Council for Scientific and Industrial Research) conduct combined tests for science subjects. The NET or the combined Tests enables the candidate to receive the Junior Research Fellowship (J.R.F.) of the U.G.C./C.S.I.R. and/or makes him/her eligible for being appointed as lecturer. In view of the fact that the number of candidates who are required to be qualified for being appointed as lecturers, under the new pay scales, is fairly large, the U.G.C. has authorized the State Governments or the State Agencies on behalf of the State Governments to conduct the State Eligibility Test(SET) for lectureship, provided, the SET is duly accredited by the U.G.C.
Note: The SET does NOT offer JRF, it is purely an Eligibility Test for the post of Lectureship which will be valid only in the State of Karnataka.
In accordance with the guidelines of the U.G.C., the Government of Karnataka, Department of Higher Education (University), Bangalore, by their Resolution No. ED 113/UMV/2009 dated 2.3.2010 have nominated the University of Mysore, Mysore as the State Agency for conducting the State Eligibility Test (SET) . The U.G.C. has accredited the SET examinations being conducted by the University of Mysore as the State Agency of the Government of Karnataka for 26 subjects.
It may further be specifically understood that such a candidate who qualifies the SET would only be held eligible for being appointed as Lecturer in University/Colleges/Institutions of Higher Education (Government/Aided/Private), provided he/she fulfills other academic qualifications prescribed for lecturer post by the U.G.C. and is selected by the respective Selection Committee. Unlike the UGC-NET/UGC-CSIR Combined Test, the candidates who qualifies the SET is only eligible for being selected as lecturer and NOT for the award of Junior Research Fellowship (JRF).
As per UGC guidelines, after June 2002, SET qualified candidates shall be eligible to apply for the post of lecturer only in the Universities/Colleges/Institutions of Higher Education (Govenment/Aided/Private) belonging to the same state whose SET Examination they have cleared.
