Higher educational institutions to be categorized as accredited or not accredited, grading system to go

New Delhi: Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in the country will no longer be given grades under the accreditation system, rather they will be categorized either as “accredited” or “not accredited”, the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) decided recently.

In an executive council meeting held on Saturday, the NAAC also decided that the accredited institutions will be further given levels between one and five to encourage them to achieve the highest level.

These sets of reforms will be implemented in two stages — the binary accreditation (accredited or not accredited) system in the next four months, and the Maturity-Based Graded Accreditation (level 1 to 5) by December.
