REPORT FOR THE YEARS: 2005-2006

Part A:

The plan of action chalked out by the IQAC in the beginning of the year towards quality enhancement and the outcome achieved by the end of the year.

The primary task of the IQAC was to monitor the progress made on the suggestions made by the various Committees appointed by the University to prepare status reports on the issues raised in the Peer Team Report 2001.

The IQAC then requested the University to place the suggestions of the IQAC before the academic/administrative bodies of the university, wherever necessary, for initiating further action. The decisions taken at the appropriate bodies are being implemented for the sustenance and enhancement of quality.

Further, IQAC planned and organized a one-day Seminar on “Institutional Preparation for Re-Accreditation by NAAC” (on 21 June 2006) to bring about an awareness of the importance of the actual implementation of the programmes, and to minimize the differences of perception, if any, among its various constituents and thus prepare the institution for re-accreditation.
