The University Grants Commission (UGC) has introduced Disaster Management as a subject in the UGC-NET 2024 December exam. The NTA conducts the UGC-NET twice a year, in June and December. Based on the expert committee's recommendations, the Commission, in its 580th meeting held on May 15, 2024, has decided to add Disaster Management as an additional subject from December 2024 onwards to the existing list of subjects of UGC-NET. 

The syllabus of the Disaster Management subject will include the following :

The exam is conducted for award of Junior Research Fellowship (JRF) and/ or eligibility for Assistant Professorship. The performance of the candidates depend on the aggregate performance of the candidate in Paper-I and Paper-II of UGC-NET. The candidates qualifying only for Assistant Professorship are not eligible to be considered for the award of JRF. Candidates who qualify the eligibility test for Assistant Professorship are governed by the rules and regulations of the concerned universities/colleges/State Governments, as the case may be for recruitment of Assistant Professor.
