The minimum and basic qualification for someone to get an Assistant Professor post anywhere in India is to have a Master's degree with at least 55% marks without rolling off.

And then you should have qualified NET exam in the particular subject in which you have done your Master's degree.

After fulfilling this two basic demands you get the minimum eligibility to apply as an Assistant Professor anywhere in India(recognized universities and institutions).

However this minimum eligibility doesn't ensure you an immediate Assistant Professor job in any particular college or university. Because then you have to sit for the interviews in every individual universities and colleges in which you're applying for the post.

And it is tough during the interviews to compete for the post as many of the institutions review your past academic performances and many other aspirants also giving the same interview for the same post, particularly if you're competing with someone for the post who's already holding a PhD degree.

So after you pass the interview you get the job.

But,I would rather advise you that if you're under 30 then along with qualifying the UGC NET exam also try your best to grab the JRF(junior research fellowship) as well,which will simply enhance your chance.

To become a college professor, you should follow below steps-

Step 1= You should opt for a stream of your choice (science, commerce or arts) in Class 12th

Step 2= After completing Class 12th, you should opt for the bachelor degree. It is important that you clear graduation with good percentages

Step 3= You should apply for the postgraduate program and score at least 55%, since it is the minimum eligibility to appear for the NET (National Eligibility Test)-the qualifying examination for teaching in a college

Step 4= Either you can sit for the NET exam or can apply for doing research work in your university. M.Phil & PhD degrees are required for doing teaching in a college. A candidate who possess doctoral degree gets an edge over other applicants.

For recruitment as professors in universities or institutions, it is mandatory to clear NET (National Eligibility Test) /SET (State Eligibility Test) examination. Usually, NET is conducted by the UGC (University Grants Commission) twice in a year- June & December every year. Those candidates who have successfully cleared NET are eligible to apply for the lecturer posts in all Indian universities/Institutes/colleges, but the SET qualified candidates will be eligible for appointment of the lecturer post only in universities/colleges, belonging to the state from where they have cleared the SET exam.
