Bengaluru's Jain, Christ Universities Get 'B' Grade From NAAC

Jain, Christ universities are unhappy with the ratings given by the National Assessment and Accreditation (NAAC), a statutory body of the UGC. Some universities are planning to approach the appeals committee seeking revision.


At its 71st executive committee meeting last month, NAAC had announced the list of 38 deemed universities recommended for accreditation in the country. Of those, 17 bagged 'A' grade, 20 'B' and one got 'C' grade.

All these 38 deemed universities were blacklisted by the Tandon Committee for various flaws in 2009; later some of them approached the court. The ministry of human resources development (MHRD) had set up the committee to check if universities were meeting the criteria for which they were declared deemed and whether they were complying with government conditions. In November this year, NAAC assessed and accredited all these universities fol lowing the September 8, 2015 Supreme Court order.

Better NAAC grades help universities get more funding and attract reputed companies during campus placements. In Karnataka, Sri Siddhartha Academy of Higher Education, Tumakuru, and Yenepoya University, Mangaluru, received 'A' grade while Sri Devaraj Urs Academy of Higher Education and Research, Kolar, and BLDE University, Vijayapu ra, got 'B'. "The grade given to us is not right; we deserve 'A'.Our management has decided to file an appeal against the ratings," said Chenraj Roychand, president of Jain University Trust.

"Some universities don't have full time vice-chancellors; they have been cheating the UGC and Medical Council of India by impersonating the admission process, especially by selling medial seats," said an academician.
