Only the university had the provision of PhD
Prior to this, PhD is done in Jammu University, SCOT Jammu, Central University Jammu, Central University Kashmir, SCHOST Kashmir and Kashmir University in the state. Even in all the campuses under JU and Kashmir University, there is no full provision of PhD. Most of the youth in central universities came from other states. Even after passing the NET, JRF exam, the youth do not get the opportunity to do research. Now researchers will be able to do research in colleges also. Like University Grants Commission, those doing NET, JRF will get scholarship.
Offers were sought from many colleges for Ph.D. Some colleges have dropped out. Keeping in mind all the situations, in which colleges research can be done in which subjects, they will be approved.
