Ugc Net Qualifying Criteria Awarding Junior Research Fellowships
Out of the candidates qualified for eligibility for Assistant Professor, those candidates who had applied for JRF, were in the consideration zone for the award of slots available for JRF. The methodology for allocation of JRF slots among different subjects category-wise described below is in addition to the category-wise minimum criterion for eligibility for Assistant Professor.

ii) As per Government of India reservation policy, a minimum of 27%, 15%, 7.5% and 3% of Fellowships are reserved for the OBC (Non-creamy layer), SC, ST and Persons with disabilities (PWD) respectively.
Accordingly, the category-wise slots available for each category are as follows: Total No. of Slots Available for JRF GEN (Unreserved) 1520 (47.50% )
Total No. of Slots Available for JRF OBC (Non-creamy layer)) 864 27.00%

The nearest whole number obtained as per this formula provides the number of slots available in any particular subject category-wise.
iv) By this method, if the number of JRF slots obtained for any subject in a particular category is less than one, it is taken as one, i.e., a minimum of one JRF is awarded wherever a fraction less than one is obtained as per this methodology. However, for fractions greater than one, the figure is rounded off to the nearest whole number.
v) The aggregate percentage of all the three papers corresponding to the number of JRF slots derived as described above is taken as the cut-off percentage for awarding JRF for any particular subject category-wise.
