National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) established in 1994 as an autonomous body of University Grant Commission (UGC) has been instilling a momentum of quality consciousness in higher educational institutions (HEI) through the task of performance evaluation, assessment and accreditation. Keeping in view, legislative enactments, national educational reforms and directives of UGC/ICAR the universities should actively engage themselves in the development and implementation of quality benchmarks in all their key performance areas.
