HRD Minister Smriti Irani is said to have met chairman of National Accreditation and Assessment Council (NAAC), D P Singh, in Bengaluru in the first week of January and requested him to revisit the accreditation indicators to include these factors. The HRD ministry has urged the national accreditation authority to judge higher educational institutions on women’s empowerment, inclusive education and industry-academia linkages in addition to the existing criteria. HRD Minister Smriti Irani is said to have met chairman of National Accreditation and Assessment Council (NAAC), D P Singh, in Bengaluru in the first week of January and requested him to revisit the accreditation indicators to include these factors.

At present, NAAC judges an institute or university on seven points — curricular aspects; teaching, learning and evaluation; research, consultancy and extension; infrastructure and learning resources; student support and progression; governance, leadership and management and, lastly, innovations and best practices. Speaking to The Indian Express, Singh confirmed his meeting with Irani. “She emphasised on parameters such as girls’ education, barrier-free access for the physically challenged, benefits or aid extended to the SC/ST and minorities by the institutions and linkages to industry,” he said. “We are going to revisit the assessment process . Although some issues raised by the minister are partially covered under the existing criteria, we’ll try to focus more on those points.” Irani also asked NAAC to open offices in MP, West Bengal, Delhi and Gujarat. – Courtesy
