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.
