MINISTER OF STATE IN THE MINISTRY OF HUMAN RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT
(DR. SHASHI THAROOR)
(a) & (b) : Yes, Sir. As per the University Grants Commission (UGC) Regulations, 2010 on the subject, those teachers who complete their Ph.D. Degree while in service are entitled to 3 non-compounded advance increments if such a Ph.D. is in the discipline of employment and has been awarded by a University complying with the process prescribed by UGC for enrolment, course work, evaluation etc.
(c) to (e) : As MHRD has been informed by UGC, the benefit of three non-compounded advance increments has been extended to the Assistant Librarian / College Librarians but not to the Assistant / College Director of Physical Education of all the Central Universities including the Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI) and the Banaras Hindu University (BHU). However, as reported by JMI, the requests for the grant of advance increments to some of the Assistant Librarians could not be acceded to as they acquired their Ph.D. degrees prior to the notification of UGC Regulations, 2010.
