BHUBANESWAR: Many popular educational institutions of the State have finally got re-accreditation from the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC), an assessment body of the University Grants Commission.

As many as 30 educational institutions including Utkal University, BJB Autonomous College and National Institute of Technology (NIT) at Rourkela have received their NAAC grades that had expired several years back.

While NIT, Rourkela received A grade with 3.12 CGPA (Cumulative Grade Point Average), Utkal University has received grade A+ with 3.53 CGPA. It may be noted that NAAC accreditation for Utkal had expired in 2009. A NAAC team led by former vice-chancellor of Bharatidasan University C Thangamuthu had visited the university from November 17 to 19 and carried out the assessment.

BJB Autonomous College got A grade with 3.19 CGPA and City-based Rajdhani College also received A grade with 3.01 CGPA. A NAAC Team led by former VC of Dr Baba Saheb Ambedkar Open University AK Singh had visited BJB Autonomous College and Rajdhani College for the assessment.

The list of institutions approved for accreditation by the 19th Standing Committee of University Grants Commission was uploaded on the NAAC website on Friday. None of the universities in Odisha except North Orissa University (B+ grade) had accreditation from the NAAC until last year. The NAAC ratings would help colleges and universities to avail funds under the UGC development grants.

The NAAC teams graded the institutions after assessing their curriculum, teaching, evaluation, research, infrastructure, innovative practices, staff strength and extra co-curricular activities.
