Employers often use accreditations to gauge the talent of the students. A+ Accreditation has compelled the institutes to set high-quality teaching benchmarks, other than research and government partnership.
A recommendation for accreditation has been approved to 21 institutes by the National Assessment Accreditation Council (NAAC) for the month of December 2021. Academics envision a brighter growth as NAAC accreditation ensures qualitative analysis of teaching and learning outcomes at the Higher Educational Institutes (HEIs), helping them evolve in a systematic manner.
‘For achieving A+ accreditation, we focused on upgrading the teaching and learning processes. Accreditation validates an institution’s various programs and courses of study,’ said Debabrata Das, director, International Institute of Information Technology, Bangalore.
“In the absence of accreditation, there would be no way to determine if the institution meets or exceeds minimum quality standards,” he added.

Oftentimes, the process at certain institutes becomes monotonous. This is where the well-defined seven criteria of NAAC promote statistical evaluation and ensure academic excellence.
Talking about the development, Payal Mago, principal, Shaheed Rajguru College of Applied Sciences said, “To opt for NAAC, one needs to statistically evaluate the education under well-defined seven criteria of NAAC. These seven criteria are the moot points upon which the academic excellence of our college’s hinges.”
On the other hand, after receiving an A++ grade from NAAC, Najma Akhtar, vide-chancellor, Jamia Milia Islamia (JMI) said, “We have improved our NAAC accreditation from A in the first cycle to A++ in the second cycle held recently. NAAC accreditation importantly streamlines the education system and NAAC cycle happens every five years.”
