At present this course is available at the University’s Belur Main Campus.

Those whose final semester results of the M.A. examination have not been declared may also apply, along with their marksheets, provided they have obtained 65% marks average in all the semester examinations held so far in the first three semesters.

  2. In the current academic year admission is open to boys only.
  3. Applicants should possess UGC NET-JRF (Junior Research Fellowship).

  4. Those without NET-JRF may also apply provided they have 75% marks or more in M.A. (or, in the first three semesters taken together, if the final semester results are yet to be published), provided they fulfill the other criteria mentioned above.

  5. Only full-time research scholars will be admitted. There is no provision for part-time scholars.

  6. Areas of specialization for the current year 2020-2021 will be Vyākaraṇa (Pāṇiṇi’s grammar) and Vedānta (preferably Śāṅkara-advaita-vedānta). Candidates should therefore have had specialization in these areas at the Master’s level.
