“Government is “confident” that the National Accreditation Regulatory Authority for Higher Educational Institutions Bill, which is in the parliament, will be passed in this session or by the end of the year.

The Bill seeks to maintain academic quality, and makes it mandatory for every higher educational institution (other than institutions engaged in agricultural education) to be accredited by an independent accreditation agency”, said Kapil Sibal while inaugurating the first World Summit of Accreditation organized by NBA (National Board of Accreditation).

He further added that, “The importance of the accreditation of the institutes of higher education will also help corporate to identify the quality people for their specialized interest. The most important part is “self-assessment” and institutes should do regular “Introspection” on improving their quality as they seek to embrace the global standard.”

Dr Dinesh K Paliwal, Member Secretary, NBA highlighted the global and technical changes in education system especially for professional studies. He said that there has been an increase in internationalization of students in higher education which is latest trend we see today.

More than 1000 delegates have gathered from all over the world on the maiden summit on accreditation organised by NBA. The Summit aims at bringing India amongst the world leaders of accreditation which can make India’s journey in the world smoother in terms of educational and professional areas.
