New Delhi: Higher educational institutions in the country, including Universities, are recognized for quality as assessed and accredited by National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC). The validity period of such accreditation is for a period of five years where after each such accredited institution is expected to come forward for second cycle of accreditation. However, as accreditation is presently not mandatory, institutions may only voluntarily opt for first accreditation and thereafter for renewal of accreditation after expiry of the validity period.

According to the information furnished by NAAC, out of 159 Universities accredited by it, as on 28.2.2010 accreditation validity period is over in respect of 67 Universities. The Central Government has also finalized a legislative proposal for mandatory accreditation of higher educational institutions in the country and subject to the law being approved by Parliament, all institutions will be obliged to hold valid accreditation certificate.

This information was given by the Minister of State for Human Resource Development Smt. D. Purandeswari, in a written reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha today.
