(News) UGC has approved yoga to be included in the 2017 NET Exams


Coming as good news for the students pursuing yoga as a subject in the universities and colleges, the University Grants Commission has approved yoga to be included in the National Eligibility Test (NET) from next year.
At a full Commission meeting of UGC last week, it was decided to allow candidates with graduation and post graduation degrees in yoga to take the NET examination.

The decision came after months when a panel set up by ministry of human resource development (MHRD) had ruled out inclusion of yoga in NET subjects. Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s yoga guru H. R. Nagendra, who headed the committee, had recommended this in order to make it a more attractive career option for the ones learning it in all institutions.

“Since there was no NET exam conducted for post-graduates students in yoga, they found it difficult to secure a teaching job but with this decision there will be speedy recruitment of teachers in all universities and colleges,” a senior official said.
