Will be change the Selection Norms?
Kindly I Request the govt. to change the mode of selection. At first Written exam should be conducted, then add Education Qualification marks and experience marks and interview marks.

Written Exam should conduct for arts and science college lecturers post. then add Education qualification marks (9 marks)and Experience marks (15 marks). Written Exam Conducted for Polytechnic college and Engineering college lecturers post. but Why not follow the Same Mode of Selection in Arts and Science College Trb Exam ?.

Is mphil registered before 2009 is considered as equivalent to net or set.

Is experience in polytechnic college considered for recruitment in govt arts and science colleges?

I support your idea


Above mentioned circular applicable to Associate Professor and above not for Assistant professor. First we should ask this question to UGC, Why it hasn't been extended to Assist Professor. Every time Net/SLET qualified candidates asking questions through portal only,They should unite and take this issue to UGC or else TRB will follow the old weight age method this time too for the recruitment of Assistant professor.

What do the words'direct recruitment'mean?

Sir I have passed in SLET Exam if I want register qualified certificate in my employment card for getting above job pls tell me

m.phil candidates can eligiable for trb exam ah?

Net or Ph.D is equal eligibilty to appoint a assisstant professor. Both qualifications are equal. But the TRB not giving equal marks.

Yes i accept the point sir please conduct the wrriten exam and will provided the equal mark of phd/set/net qualification

What about candidates having both NET OR SET with PhD

We all should join together and request to the government. It is totally disheartening that selection is based on experience... It should be counted... however the methodology of selection criteria should be as such followed in the engineering faculty recruitment... Please send your opinion as a request to CM cell... secretary of higher education/trb and the honourable minister.

SET/NET is an eligibility exam... For recruitment competitive exam should be d right choice of selecting candidates.... for assistant professor why do you expect candidates to have experience and articles to be published... you are not applying for associate professor role... also publishing an article isnt a big challenge now a days.... n number of publishers are there.... So it should be ruled out for this particular postings...

hi, can you clarify the age limit for general candidates

Really not necessary to wait for 10 or 15 years... if there is a vacancy in government colleges one can qualify the exam and get selected... look at civil services exam..... one need not wait for years and years to compete and get qualified... so the administrators are recruited through comp exam... however, for teaching you are asking everyone to gain experience... in what way it is justified...???

Hi all... please send email to Prince Gajendrababu sir to conduct a competitive exam for recruitment....

Sir asst professor arts science college selection first exam

Is Mphil registered before 2009 is considered as equalent to Net or Slet please answer my question

For engg and polytechnic colleges net/set is not needed. So selection is based on written exam. Here it is not required for net/set passed candidates, may be for phd candidates

Yes it is correct

Is Mphil registered before 2009 is considered as equalent to Net or Slet please answer my question

Dont conduct any exam?What is the necessity to conduct exam those who met the eligibility cafeteria they should deserve for their experience and qualifications. The TRB is doing correct way.They should consider full time phd for more weitage than part time.

Need justice for deserved qualification,age and experience, They are also conducting the interview that is very good idea to examine candidate. Other procedures are unnecessary complications and further delay the selection procedures, this is the right way taken by TRB, weldone TRB. Gusys dont impose your advantages here.Their decisions are 100 percent right.

Yes you are right. How exams have to be written...?full time PhD scholars have to be given preference.

Dear sir when will TRB will release vacancy list for direct recruitment?


July 4th week

Only 5 marks are given for SLET/NET and Ph.D holders are given only 9 marks. But 15 marks are given for experience. TRB should revise the weight age of mark given so that equal preference given for qualification and experience. 15 marks given for experience clearly indicate the recruitment process may not be transparent and it may lead to producing fake certificates. TRB should consider itself as sole responsible board for improving the educational system in Tamil Nadu and it should not allow any malpractice in the recruitment process.

As per the TRB norms do the selection procedure every individual have certain advantages. The above discussions are crazy those who met the eligibility cafeteria, they should be selected. Do your way TRB, please do not allow unnecessary involvements from politicians interference and corruptions. Selection should be 100% merit basis. Best of luck for every eligible candidates.

Written Examination should be conducted first and then only marks to be given for qualification and experience for the selection process of Asst Professor post. It's the only way to do the selection process to be fairly.Regards Pugalur Shan Thangam Raja (P STR)

As per TRB selection procedure there is no written exam.Those who are already qualified for this position (PhD/SLET/NET) they are eligible to apply for this position those who are really want to apply for this job please take SLET/NET exam or to complete PhD degree. Understand your ignorance before discuss here.

part time Ph.D candidates are completing all processes prescribed by university to award Ph.D. simply nobody will be awarded with ph.D degree. dont differentiate?....

HI friends,this year will there be the inclusion of homescience department,bcos last time our department wasn't included.pls,if anyone knows kindly share.i'm NET qualified canditate.

When full time and part time come to the selection picture the full time should have more wattage, they deserve for their 100% involvements,times etc....

Keeping competitive exam will have transparency in selection. if not money will launder... You have so much of experience and knowledge and you are afraid of competitive exam... really pathetic... be bold to face the exam...

Facing the exam is not matter already we ware completed NET and PhD. Try to understand your ignorance. I think above mentioned guy afraid and no guts to clear eligibility test.

Yes present method of selection is unfair! Even if you have cleared net or set, you have to do phd and work at least for another 15 years then you have a chance of selection. Competitive exams is only fair way of selection. why Trb is not understanding it and still follow age old recruitment process. kerala, karnataka and many other states have changed to competitive exam alone. let us be fair, lets have exam plus weightage marks.

The TRB way is correct, one of the main reason is still we are for behind in higher education (PhD).That is the reason TRB encouraging doctorate degree.

Perfect... we all should unite and take this to our present government's attention.

@VEL: It is incorrect..... What is the purpose of doing Ph.D? To do research or to get assistand professor job??? For teaching M.Sc. and practical knowledge is enough. Ph.D is done based on your passion towards research. Then why do you want to compete in teaching job... so you dont know to differentiate passion and career??? Really pathetic situation...

Hello @@@@.. WE BRING THE CHANGE PERSON, The TRB is looking for experienced professors, only experienced professors will provide the better quality than beginners. TRB clearly understand the current situations. I just L.O.L.about your inexperience situations...

Hello dear friends: Doctor of Philosophy (PhD): A doctoral program is best for those on a research-based pathway. With a focus on research methodology, this degree is suitable for future college professors. Dissertation research focuses on national and international trends.

I agree, even though I am not having any teaching experience. Only the experienced people will deliver knowledgeable students.

"A baby has brains, but it doesn't know much. Experience is the only thing that brings knowledge, and the longer you are on earth the more experience you are sure to get".

"No man's knowledge can go beyond his experience".
If we discuss may things we can discuss here for ex. why the government is following community category relaxation? (BC/SC/ST/FC). The knowledge is common for all category. We must understand and follow certain government rules, if anyone not interested just find other jobs not necessary to fight here...

Folks we need exam from office peon selection to president selection. Is it possible?.... I discussed with my friend about this exam matter he said he want to promote his exam preparation notes. so do not support this kind of persons follow the existing system whoever having qualification with experience they should be selected.Already we are cleared SLET/NET then what is the need for another exam only notes promoters and inexperienced candidates are frustrated now....

To be honest you will never ever get selected in this experienced category... this is for you anonymous... People are very clever in producing fake experienced certificates and get selected... Dont worry... all the best for your future. I know how to secure my future...no purpose having discussion here... rather we can focus what can be done... Again for sure, i can confirm that you will never ever get selected in this method.... :)

We are not asking to eliminate in counting your teaching experience... Exam + experience + PH.D + Interview should be the ideal methodology to recruit...

Who said so... inexperienced candidates are recruited in civil services exam... so do you tell that they are poor administrators... for assistant professors you dont need experience man only for associate professors and professors you need more experience. Hope you get it...

How come fake experience certificate is possible 🙆???? Experience marks are counted from the date of fully qualified status. It is obvious that everyone who is eligible is working some where. No one will be just like that or simply sitting in home after clearing NET or Set or PhD. Preference should be given if whoever having NET or SET with PhD.

Why are the experienced candidates frightened? They should get more marks in the exam since they are experienced and well read. Their years of reading should make them top scorers. 10 vacancies and 1000 candidates are there for one subject , how will you get selected without the exam?

All the type of teaching requirement only through of exam. But why arts and science college lecturer select old method.well knowledge person achieve exam.unfit person fail the exam.50%lecturer select examination mode.remaining interview mode.please well knowledged youth life important.

Because we have already written exam and cleared.how many exams have to be written?????. For Engineering recruitment there is no such eligibility test for engineering candidates. That's why non engineering candidates have to go along with engineering candidates though they have cleared eligibility test.
And according to ugc norms for the purpose of direct recruitment teaching experience should be counted.
Exams are applicable for PhD candidates and not for eligibility cleared candidates.

Dear friends I cant understand the above discussions for seeking one more exam here. EX. any civil service cleared person will need to take another exam? based on above discussions P.G is basic qualification so abolish SLET/NET/PHD qualifications all P.G students are eligible to participate. The T.R.B board discussed in-detail finally announced this. All selfish inexperienced folks are discussing in crazy way. TRB took strong decision here.

IF Experience alone is important, why NET/SET qualification? Let them fix eligibility as Phd and minimum 20 years of experience! This time if no exam then it will be challenged in High court! let the court decide which is fair and unfair. Our constitution supports competitive exam. lets wait an watch.

Yes, this will be challenged in High Court...

I had submitted my thesis on April 2016 waiting for viva, is am eligible to applying for TRB Assistant Professor job.

Hai Jayashri,
If you already cleared SLET or NET you are eligible,or else you must have completed your viva. I understand in our university system minimum it will take 1 year from the submission date. Hope the best
