For reference: Here are the advertisement, the FAQ, and the flyer (short version of the advertisement) about the written test and the doctoral scholarship scheme 2021. (Caveat: No attempt has been made to update these documents after the test was indefinitely postponed in April, so some of the information in them is outdated.) Queries that are not answered by the advertisement and FAQ may be raised by writing to one of the Zonal Coordinators (see the advertisement for details).
