Here is CSIR UGC NET SYLLABUS 2017 for Mathematics or
Mathematical Sciences.

CSIR (Council of Scientific & Industrial Research) conducts
NET (National Eligibility Test) exam two times every year for Eligibility for
Lectureship and Junior Research Fellowship in Mathematics. Those candidates who
are preparing for CSIR NET Exam in subject of Mathematics (Maths) should have
the syllabus of CSIR UGC NET SYLLABUS of MATHEMATICS. So to help those
candidates, here is CSIR UGC NET SYLLABUS 2017 for MATHEMATICS (MATHEMATICAL
SCIENCES) with PDF also given at bottom of post.
