||The allocation of the University recognized Supervisor for the selected students shall be decided by the Dean Faculty and Dean P.G. Studies, in a formal manner depending on the number of students per Supervisor, the available specialization among the supervisors and the research interest of the student as indicated during interview by the student. The allotment/allocation of Supervisor shall not be left to the individual student or the Supervisor.
||If the Supervisor is out stationed, then a Co-supervisor may appointed in consultation with the Supervisor from within the university.
||A panel of Industry Advisors would be constituted by the University for Management Studies, Pharmacy and Engineering faculty. The candidate may seek the help of Industry Advisor from the panel (if available) on the recommendation of the supervisor in view and nature of the problem under study. The supervisor may also recommend Research Methodology Advisor in all the faculties in which university is offering Ph.D. degree to help the candidate finalize the research methodology for the research work. However, the final decision in all respects shall be of the supervisor. Industry Advisor/Research Methodology Advisor would only have advisory roles.
||An Industry Advisor or Research Methodology Advisor shall be paid an honorarium as recommended by the Dean Faculty. However, they shall be paid for maximum 5 sittings.
||The doctoral candidate may be allowed to continue to do his/her research work and submit it to the University without a supervisor under extra-ordinary circumstances such as death of the supervisor/non-availability of supervisor within six months.

The University shall consider such cases on the basis of their merit and its decision shall be final.
