Research work is a vital aspect that is instrumental for the development of a nation. A progressive country, like India, is in constant need to explore and discover new avenues for its holistic development. For this purpose, undertaking tireless research work is indispensable. However, considering the present scenario, the field of research is bound to receive a major setback owing to the discontinuation of fellowships in various streams; the victims of which are majorly from the Humanities stream. UGC-NET is one of the toughest exams in India, where only a few students are able to qualify, and even lesser number of students become eligible for JRF. So long students who pursued M.Phil or Ph.D received a stipulated fellowship from their respective institutes. But from 2016, the Government has discontinued this scheme. As a result, this has become a huge impediment for pursuing research. The cost of books and other items required to pursue respective research works cannot be met with. Many brilliant scholars, who are pursuing research at the moment, do not have the privilege of an economically-sound background. It is, therefore, becoming increasingly difficult for the scholars to pursue with their research works for the sheer lack of money. This lack of financial resource and the consequent discontinuation of research work will be detrimental for the country, in the long run. So it is advisable to bring back the non-NET fellowship scheme from the next academic year.
