A college being accredited by NAAC, usually signifies that it has met certain standards of excellence across its operations and NAAC helps them to work continuously to improve the quality of education. Geeta Group of Institutions, Panipat is one such institution accredited by NAAC. All courses offered by GGI Panipat are accredited by NAAC. Students pursuing a course from a NAAC accredited institute hold a higher significance than from those pursuing from a non-accredited institute.
Gulabrao Thakre, the Joint Director of Technical Education advised students to be careful while filling options during the admission process of Engineering. He also said that the students must check whether the course they opted for has accreditation of either National Accreditation and Assessment Council (NAAC) or National Board of Accreditation (NBA). This is because, from the new academic year, no scholarship would be given to students who will go for courses which do not have NAAC or NBA accreditation. This makes NAAC accreditation even more valuable.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) and other apex bodies like University Grants Commission, All India Council for Technical Education and Council of Architecture have been appealing since long to colleges to get courses they are offering accredited from the agencies like NAAC or NBA. But it seems that the appeals have fallen on the deaf ears. “Accreditation always measures the quality level of the institutions and helps them grow. Unfortunately, barring a few, no college even bothered to do so. This year, the Government has taken a firm stand as far as disbursing scholarship amount is concerned. At least, this stand of the Government will make management of colleges serious,” said Mr. Thakre.
