However, only Ph.D holders, who have pursued the course as per the UGC's regulation on Ph.D programmes, will get exemption from clearing NET or SLET.

regulation on Ph.D programmes, states that universities will lay down criteria for the faculty to be recognised as research supervisor for M.Phil and Ph.D students.
A supervisor cannot have more than eight Ph.D and five M.Phil scholars at any given point of time. The universities will decide the number of M.Phil and Ph.D seats and advertise them widely. The universities will have to admit M. Phil and Doctoral students through an entrance test.

The entrance will be followed by an interview in which the doctoral students will discuss their research area. After admission to Ph.D, the students will have to do a course work for a minimum period of one semester.
