Allotment of Research Guide

(rules & procedures)

 

    

Every student is required to register with a Research Guide for his/her Ph.D. work. The Research Guide must be chosen within the Department allotted to the student at the time of joining.

Within this Department, every student has full freedom to choose his/her Guide, provided (a) the Guide consents, and (b) the Guide is eligible to take a student (see below).

    

Any Faculty member can, in principle, be a Research Guide (see below). Every Faculty member is at complete liberty to accept or refuse to guide a student, subject to the eligibility rules given below.

    

A Faculty member who has less than two years left till superannuation at the time of Registration may also be a Research Guide. provided there is a co-Guide who is not more than 55 years of age at the time of Registration.

In case the Guide leaves the Institute on superannuation, the co-Guide will automatically become the Research Guide.

    

A student will be associated with a Faculty member as Guide from the date of Registration or the date of transfer (in case of superannuation of the previous Guide), whichever is earlier, till the date of Submission of the Thesis or the date of the studentís leaving the Institute, whichever is earlier.

    

The maximum number of graduate students who can be registered at any point of time with an individual faculty members is given, Department-wise, below:

DAA

DCMP&MS

Joint Supervision is counted as a half-student, except in cases as detailed below.

    

A Faculty member below the age of 55 years can be a co-Guide for a maximum of two students where the Guide is within two years from superannuation.

Such students will not be counted among the younger Faculty memberís quota of graduate students.

 

Students in the Ph.D. programme in the DAA, DCMP&MS, DHEP and DNAP are required to identify their prospective Research Guides by the end of the First Semester, and formally Register by the end of the Fourth Semester.

Students in the Integrated-Ph.D. programme in the DAA, DCMP&MS, DHEP and DNAP are required to identify their prospective Research Guides by the end of the Third Semester, and formally Register by the end of the Sixth Semester.

Students in the Ph.D. programme in the DTP are required to identify their prospective Research Guides and formally Register by the end of the Fourth Semester.

Students in the Integrated-Ph.D. programme in the DTP are required to identify their prospective Research Guides and formally Register by the end of the Sixth Semester.

Students of the Ph.D. programme who fail to Register after the completion of four semesters will not normally be permitted to continue in the Ph.D. programme. Likewise, students of the Integrated M.Sc.-Ph.D. programme who fail to Register after the completion of six semesters will not normally be permitted to continue in the Integrated M.Sc.-Ph.D. programme.

 

    

In exceptional cases, change of Research Guide is permissible with the permission of the Department and the Subject Board of Physics. However, no extra time will be given to the student in such a case.

    

In case the Research Guide of a student leaves the Institute (apart from superannuation), the studentís allocated Department will find a suitable Guide in replacement.However, no extra time will be given to the student in such a case.

If the student wishes to leave the Institute together with his/her Guide and join a different institution, full transfer of credits will be possible, provided it is acceptable to that institution.
