The Institute of Science, one of the oldest institutions of Central India, has been granted grade ‘A’ by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC). A team of NAAC had visited the institute recently. After examining the infrastructure, facilities and other features of the institute, the NAAC team recommended Grade A to the Institute of Science and according to coveted rank was awarded.
The officials said, NAAC’s team had visited the institute in May and had inspected the standard of education, the research standards, etc. The team in their 2-day tour had spoken to the current students, ex-students and the guardians as well.
After the inspection, NAAC sent their report to the headquarters in Bengaluru and had also sent a requisition to give an ‘A’ grade to the institute. Director of the Institute of Science, Ramdas Atram was informed about the decision through a letter.
NAAC grading is welcome news for the institute which has been trying to get educational autonomy for a long. Grade A is certainly a shot in the arms for the Institute of Science. It has again given fresh hopes of getting autonomy.
The institute has sent a proposal several times to the University for educational autonomy but there has been no positive response from the varsity. The ‘A’ grade from NAAC might turn the tables for the institute.
