PROVISIONAL ADMISSION:

For students whose final examination results for their qualifying degree are not declared by the time of joining (appoximately end July/ beginning August): They will be admitted on a provisional basis, subject to passing of the relevant degree examination.  The admission will be regularised on production of marksheets / provisional / final degree certificate of the qualifying degree examination.  

If the qualifying degree is a Bachelor's degree (1st degree after Std. XII): Payment of fellowship will be withheld in full till documentary evidence is submitted of having completed the qualifying degree.

If the qualifying degree is a Master's degree (and the student already has a Bachelor's degree): Payment of fellowship will be at a lower rate (IPhD) until documentary evidence is submitted of having completed the qualifying degree.

In both cases, once the admission is regularised, arrears corresponding to the full amount of fellowship will be paid calculated from the date of joining.
