Put gradation of universities on the website, SC to NAAC

The Supreme Court recently has directed the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) to display the gradation of universities in the public domain within three days.

A bench comprising Justices Dipak Misra and Shiva Kirti Singh was informed by Additional Solicitor General Maninder Singh that the NAAC has considered various aspects including self-appraisal report of these universities and put the information regarding their gradation on the website.

"Let us know the NAAC grading. If someone is left out and aggrieved, then we will ask Union of India, UGC and the NAAC to look into it," the bench said while fixing the batch of petitions for hearing in third week of January next year.

Earlier the court has asked the universities to submit their self-appraisal report to NAAC so that they can be awarded grades accordingly. 3 months time had been given to NAAC to decide over accreditation and grades of the 121 deemed universities .

"The National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) shall not insist for the compliance of the 2010 regulations. The Universities are directed to submit the self appraisal report within ten days," it had then said and made it clear that any decision of the NAAC would be subject to the outcome of a PIL questioning the procedure of granting recognition to such universities.

Besides, the apex court had also asked the UGC for the physical verification of infrastructure and faculty strength of deemed universities, which were black-listed by a government- appointed committee.

Explaining the delay the UGC counsel said that there was a need to modify the apex court order as the commission cannot go the way P N Tandon Committee categorised the deemed universities.

After the Supreme Court's direction, UGC had in October last year set up a committee under its vice chairperson H Devaraj to conduct physical verification of 7 universities whose deemed category status had come under question.
