The minister also mentioned that in the last to last academic year i.e 2014-15 the number of PhD degrees awarded to students was 27,327. The increment in number is linked to the increment in tie-ups of internationally renowned companies or organisations with institutes.
Recently UGC announced the new rules for PhD which included the rule that from this academic year there will be a decrease in the number of seats. The decrease in the number of seats will lead to higher competition and possibly quality education.
