According to the UGC and central government rule, the minimum qualification criteria is 55% in post-graduation for NET and SLET or state level examination. But is this the right policy for selecting a faculty? India is democratic country and students should have the right to evaluate their teachers. Good score in the examination can not imply that they can teach well. We can see many previous faculty in university level who do not have these scoring cards but they were prodigy.
