  • NEW DELHI: Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University here was recently accredited with an A grade by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC).

    The accreditation is valid for a period of five years beginning March 31, 2007. The peer team from NAAC -- an autonomous institution of the University Grants Commission -- visited the university from February 19 to 21 and prepared a report based on their inputs and documents submitted by GGSIPU.

    The report has commended GGSIPU for evolving as a "successful professional university in the country with a diversified programme option and modernised curricula". The report said the "academic and administrative discipline" created in the University leading to good-governance has enabled a conducive ambience for strict adherence of academic calendar, on-time announcement of examination results, prevention of ragging, besides facilitating interaction of society and industry with faculty members. The university's weekend post-graduate programmes for working personnel facilitating career advancement opportunities have also been appreciated.

    Talking about the accreditation, Vice-Chancellor K. K. Aggarwal said: "We are very happy to be the first regular university in the Capital to get an A grade by NAAC and that too in mere eight years of our existence."

    "Success always drives one towards further success. The award will act as a motivation for the faculty and staff members. All over the world accreditation is seen with great respect. The only body for giving accreditation in India is NAAC and an A grade from them will indeed provide us more worldwide recognition," Prof. Aggarwal added.
