What is NAAC License?

The National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) is a government organization in India that assesses and accredits Higher Education Institutions (HEIs). It is an autonomous body funded by the University Grants Commission and headquartered in Bangalore.

National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) was established by the UGC in September 1994 in Bangalore for evaluating the performance of the Universities and Colleges in the Country. NAAC’s mandate includes the task of performance evaluation, assessment, and accreditation of universities and colleges in the country.

The philosophy of NAAC is based on objective and continuous improvement rather than being punitive or judgmental so that all institutions of higher learning are empowered to maximize their resources, opportunities, and capabilities. Assessment is a performance evaluation of an institution and /or its units and is accomplished through a process based on self-study and peer review using defined criteria.

Accreditation refers to the certification given by NAAC which is valid for a period of five years. At present, the Assessment and Accreditation by NAAC are done on a voluntary basis.
