The Akhil Bharatiya vidyarthi parishad, the student wing of RSS, has asked the JNU to re-link the MPhil and PhD programmes for current students at the University. JNU had argued its integrated MPhil and PhD program in 2018. Before that, applicants must sit for an entrance exam at the MPhil stage. And the admission into PhD program will be regulated by their CGPA. By delinking the “2” courses, entrances began being held at both the stages. ABVP also said that re-linking process may be essential for current MPhil students of 2019-2021and 2020-2022 batches.
