    Is there any increment in the fellowship for JRF?

  2. From the last year engineering science is no longer in CSIR NET Exam because
    the current DG Dr. M.O. Garg feels that it is a waste of resources on CSIR’s part to conduct an exam and he feels that GATE exam is good enough even for CSIR to take students for its own programs.
