Fellowship Increment for Research Scholars


India is home to a growing number of research scholars who are pursuing advanced degrees in a variety of fields. These scholars are an important part of the country’s intellectual and academic landscape, and their work is helping to drive innovation and progress in a range of areas. Many research scholars in India are working in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields such as engineering, computer science, and biotechnology. These fields are of particular importance to India’s economy, as the country is rapidly developing its technology and innovation sectors. There are also many scholars who are working in fields such as social sciences, humanities, and arts, where their research is helping to expand our understanding of culture, society, and history.

Research fellowships are an essential aspect of advanced education and research. These fellowships provide financial support and other resources to students, enabling them to undertake high-quality research and contribute to the academic and scientific community. Research scholars in India generally need financial help due to low stipends and limited funding opportunities. This can limit their ability to pursue their research interests and achieve financial freedom. However, there are initiatives by the government and private organisations to provide financial support to researchers, such as research grants, scholarships, and fellowships. Additionally, scholars can also explore other sources of income, such as part-time jobs or freelance work, to supplement their income. Overall, while financial freedom may be challenging for research scholars in India, there are resources available to help support their academic pursuits. A large section of research scholars are non-National Eligibility Test (NET) fellows, which means they have been qualified by the research entrance test conducted by the independent varsities. They are paid a minimum amount of `8,000 per month with a contingency of `8,000 per year in social sciences and `10,000 per month for other streams.
