Men Outnumber Women In PhD Programmes In Indian Universities

New Delhi: Breaking the common belief that India has more female candidates pursuing PhD than male, Human Resource Development (HRD) Ministry data prove that Indian men outnumber women in PhD programmes in Indian Universities.

The Press Trust of India (PTI) reports that  more than 21,000 more males are pursuing PhDs in the country than females. As per the HRD ministry data of past three years, the total number of researchers has also increased. 

According to the data, 1,00,792 candidates have enrolled for the PhD programmes in Indian universities in 2014-15 while the number of students registering in 2015-16 and 2016-17 was 1,09,552 and 1,23,712 respectively.

PTI reported that, in the year 2014-15, over 21,000 more males had enrolled in the PhD programmes than females. Similarly in the subsequent years, the number was higher by 21,688 and 21,882.

A PhD or Doctor of Philosophy is the highest academic degree awarded by universities in most countries, and in India, it is often considered as a requirement for employment as a university professor, researcher, or scientist in many fields.
