Dyadic approach has been used (one guide and one scholar) for data collection.  Independent t-test has been used to check significance of difference in the mean scores of two set of respondents. Results revealed that there exist significant differences in the perception of mentees regarding mentoring function in formal and informal mentoring. The mean value is higher for informal setting than the formal setting. Informal mentor provides more   career development, role modeling and psychosocial support to mentee than formal mentors.
