The IITs and IIMs could expedite their process with the expansion of NAAC and NBA. Only 15%of the institutions are accredited in our country. Accreditation would be based on “learning outcome” and the quality of education would be the determinate factor or the key parameter. The minister’s remarked against the UGC’s policy of granting accreditation to bring more institutions within the same bar. The institution who maintains the quality will remain in the business while the others will be out. Higher Education Secretary R.
