Questions related to UGC NET
Hi sir, I qualified UGC NET June 2019 in Labour Welfare. I wrote the exam under EWS category. I got my EWS certificate in November 2020. Is there any problem in that? Hop to hear from you soon.
The EWS certificate is required only when you apply for a teaching or research post. During the appointment , they will verify the documents and that is when you will need your EWS certificate. The validity of the EWS certificate is decided by the designated authority of the states and in general the validity is till one year from the date of issue. So having written the exam as an EWS candidate , if you have a valid EWS certificate based on the current income and asset details , then you have no reason to worry.

Hello Dear Student,
Yes you can apply for the Post Of Government lecturer in a Degree College on the basis of UGC NET Score but without PhD you will not be appointed as a Permanent Faculty but you can work as a Contractual Faculty.
