It explains two important aspects of the programme viz. Semester-wise Operations and Ph. D. Thesis submission. The Institute follows semester-wise pattern and a candidate is required to register in prescribed Ph. D. courses in every semester by paying requisite amount of fees till all the requirements of the programme are completed and the thesis is submitted. The candidate is supposed to plan his/her work and is evaluated continuously by the respective supervisor/mentor. The overall operation of Ph. D. programme is governed by the Academic Regulations of the Institute.
The information gives details about operational features of the programme, semester-wise registration pattern, requirements of various courses, pre-submission seminar and Ph. D. Thesis submission. Various proforma and checklists have also been made available and can be downloaded and used. A calendar of various events for a typical semester is also included. All the candidates and supervisors should refer to these guidelines throughout the duration of the Ph. D. programme and adhere to the deadlines of various activities. Changes, if any, will be communicated by Academic Research (Ph. D. Programme) Division.
It is expected that this information will enable a candidate and his/her supervisor in understanding the requirements of the Ph.D. programme of the Institute.
