AYUSH PH.D. FELLOWSHIP SCHEME (2018)

Scheme fo r Fellowships fo r conducting Ph.D. Programmes and research projects in AYUSH streams through Research Councils under M inistry of AYUSH INTRODUCTION: The medicine and practices related to Ayurveda, Yoga & Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy {AYUSH} is presently seen as an alternative to modern medicine in respect of number of diseases. For some diseases, it has the potential to replace modern medicines. Of late, much thrust has been given to the systems of AYUSH through many initiatives by the Government. A modern approach towards research linked with outcomes is one such initiative being taken by the Ministry. Availability of quality- research manpower is unarguably one of the essential components to achieve this objective. There are five autonomous Research Councils working under Ministry of AYUSH namely, Central Council for Research in Ayurvedic Sciences{CCRAS}; Central Council for Research in Yoga and Naturopathy{CCRYN}; Central Council for Research in Unani Medicine{CCRUM}; Central Council for Research in Siddha {CCRS}; and Central Council for Research in Homoeopathy{CCRH}. These Councils are engaged in various research, namely, fundamental research, Clinical Research, drug standardization, validation of classical drugs, literary research etc. These researches are conducted under Intra Mural Research programmes, i.e. in-house programme; Extra Mural Research programme or collaborative programmes. There are 82 institutes under these Councils across the country. These Research Councils require manpower for their own organization. It may also help other organizations to conduct their programmes through provision of fellowships to suitable scholars for pursuing Ph.D. programmes. In this background, Ministry of AYUSH through its Research Councils envisage a scheme to provide fellowship to meritorious scholars from AYUSH system. UGC has issued advisory vide D.O.No.F.14-12/2016(CPP-II) dated 26th October, 2016 (https://www.ugc.ac.in/pdfnews/1475485 UGC-letter-AYUSH.pdf) to the Vice Chancellors of all Universities for Inclusion AYUSH disciplines in Universities and in the affiliated Colleges for enrolment of candidates in the Ph.D. programs and avail fellowship from the concerned AYUSH Research Council. UGC has also given mutual recognition o f AYUSH-NET and UGC-NET vide D.O.No.F.21-2/2016(PS/PMO/PG) dated 12/04/2018 for admission to the Ph.D. programme in the subjects covered under AYUSH except for those subjects in which UGC is conducting NET, such as "YOGA”. Accordingly, the Ministry of AYUSH has requested to the Vice Chancellors of all Universities and Directors of Institutes having

Trial registration involves public declaration and identification of trial investigators, sponsors, interventions, patient population etc. before the enrolment of the first patient. Submission of Ethics approval and DCGI approval (if applicable) is essential for trial registration in the CTRI. Multi-country trials, where India is a participating country, which have been registered in an international registry, are also expected to be registered in the CTRI. In the CTRI, details of Indian investigators, trial sites, Indian target sample size and date of enrolment are captured. After a trial is registered, trialists are expected to regularly update the trial status or other aspects as the case may be. After a trial is registered, all updates and changes will be recorded and available for public display. Accordingly, the applicant/Guide has to obtain CTRI Registration in all clinical trials and a copy of certificate indicating CTRI No. and date is to be submitted to Research Council.

The fellow has to submit the following at the end of Ph.D. research work: (a)

Thesis

Ph.D. Degree (attested copy of Provisional Certificate and attested copy of original Degree after award of Original Degree)

TEMPORARY TEACHING & RESEARCH JOB A Research Fellow on the recommendation of Guide, and provided that his/her University/ Institute has no objection, may be permitted by council concerned to take up temporary paid lectureship/research job in a recognized R&D Institution/University, College/Institute of repute/Recognized R & D Institution in India for a period not exceeding one year during the entire tenure of the Fellowship. The Research Fellow will not be entitled to any extension of the Fellowship for such periods. The Fellow will not be entitled to stipend and contingency grant during such leave. Such leave period will be counted in the tenure. Such leave can be taken only after joining and working as Research Scholar at least for one year. Fellow has to report for duty at the same place from where he/she proceeded on leave.

19.

LEAVE Casual Leave will be admissible according to the rules of the Institution where the Fellow would be placed for work. Leave with stipend not exceeding 30 days for each completed year of tenure may be allowed by the Guide after the request has been communicated to Council concerned. The leave will be treated as part of the Fellow’s tenure. In the case of conversion of fellowship to another category leave can be carried forward. The leave due can be carried over to the next year, however not more than 90 days can be accumulated at any time during the tenure. Of this not more than 30 days can be availed in a calendar year with stipend and beyond that any leave will be treated as "Leave Without Stipend”. During the first year of Fellowship or any uncompleted year, leave may be granted on pro-rata basis. Sanction of leave without stipend may be considered by Council concerned under special circumstances. In case a Fellow proceeds on leave before expiry of Fellowship tenure, he/she must join back before the expiry of tenure; failing which the tenure will be deemed to have terminated with effect from the date he/she proceeded on leave. The fact of joining back from leave should be communicated to Council concerned immediately. As the Council concerned releases the grant in advance, therefore, the amount on account of "Leave Without Stipend” has to be refunded to Council concerned at the end of a financial year or adjusted against the fresh claim, if any.

(16)

AYUSH PH.D. FELLOWSHIP SCHEME (2018)

20.

The Guide can grant leave to a Fellow in his/her charge with the concurrence of the Head of the Institution/Department if the leave is due as prescribed in para 24 above.

The Fellow should not be allowed to proceed on leave to visit abroad for attending conferences/seminars etc. without prior approval of the Council concerned well in advance. The entire duration of such foreign visits if funded by any national/international agency, whether partially or fully, would be treated as leave without stipend.

21.1

Women Fellows with less than two surviving children will be entitled for full stipend plus HRA, during the period of absence upto 180 days on grounds of maternity. Such leave shall be sanctioned by the Guide under intimation to Council concerned.

It is expected that the Fellow will make up for the research work during the remaining tenure.

21.2 Male Fellows of Council concerned with less than two surviving children are entitled for 15 days paternity leave during confinement of his wife on submission of relevant documentary proof. 22.

TRANSFER OF FELLOWSHIP The fellow should carefully choose the host institution, guide/supervisor, availability of necessary infrastructural and other research facilities etc. to carry out his/her research before joining. Request for transfer of fellowship will not be entertained except on compelling circumstances for which the fellow & his/her guide should submit proper justification. The No Objection Certificate should be produced by the Fellow from supervisor and Head of Department of University/Institute from where transfer is sought and consent of the Guide/Host Institute where Fellowships is sought to be transferred by giving reasons of transfer.

The Chairman, UGC has approved the recommendations of the above committee. You may, therefore, take further action in accordance with the-recommendations o f the Committee.
