Rashtrasant Tukadoji Maharaj Nagpur University has changed the rules pertaining to PhD degrees. The period for submission of the thesis has been extended from five to six years. The researcher can be granted two additional years for submission of the thesis.
The changes have been brought following application by some researchers. The extension was sought due to the time lost during the Corona pandemic. Any researcher, however, will not be granted a period beyond eight years for submission of the thesis. The researcher is required to carry out the research work for a minimum of three years.
Persons with Disabilities and women who opt for maternity leave can be granted an extended period of eight years.
