College teachers to get three more years to do PhD

  10-Dec-2014  |   Post By: Ph.D.online

SURAT: The Veer Narmad South Gujarat University (VNSGU) has in its syndicate meeting held here on Friday decided to extend the time limit for its teachers of different faculties and affiliated colleges to complete their PhD by another three years.

The teachers earlier had to complete their PhD within eight years. Now, they can complete their doctoral degrees within 11 years.

The decision was taken as over 200 teachers of various colleges faced the prospects of losing their jobs without a Phd degree. University sources said three teachers had been recently removed from their jobs by their respective colleges as they had failed to complete their PhD degrees within the stipulated time limit.
