NAAC Offers Provisional Accreditation to DAVV Colleges

INDORE: Now that the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) is going to offer provisional accreditation, Devi Ahilya Vishwavidyalaya (DAVV) has written to affiliated colleges.

Of the 280 affiliated colleges, more than 200 DAVV-affiliated institutions of higher learning (HEIs) are not yet accredited by the NAAC.

Especially after the recent instruction by the Minister of Higher Education of Madhya Pradesh, Dr. Mohan Yadav, for colleges to opt for the provisional NAAC certificate, DAVV has taken responsibility to ensure that affiliated colleges also get one.

“Though the university has encouraged colleges to go for assessment, but at the moment DAVV has written to affiliated colleges to at least ask for a provisional certificate,” DAVV rector Dr. Ashok Sharma told TOI .

According to new NAAC guidelines, Provisional College Accreditation (PAC) will help determine institutions’ readiness for final NAAC accreditation.

The deadline to apply for the provisional certificate is February 24, so colleges are urged to do so before the deadline, he added.

Institutions applying for the PAC process will receive information on the areas they need to work on to reach the quality threshold level.

The PAC will be valid for two years and institutions cannot earn it more than twice, giving colleges the opportunity to prepare accordingly, Sharma said.

Due to poor facilities and the low quality of education provided by colleges, the majority of institutions have avoided the NAAC assessment for several years now.

Affiliated colleges are concerned that poor grades will affect admission numbers.

While DAVV has previously linked the All-India Survey for Higher Education (AISHE) survey to college affiliation.

Director of the Colleges Development Council, DAVV, Dr. Rajeev Dixit claimed that the university also plans to tie NAAC accreditation to affiliation in a few years.
