The NAAC grants accreditation to a college from which at least two batches of graduates have passed out. It is a voluntary exercise and the accreditation granted is valid for a period of five years, at the end of which the institution concerned must submit itself for a reaccreditation exercise. Accreditation is a rigorous process where Institutional Eligibility for Quality Assessment (IEQA) is the first step, followed by self-study report submitted by the institution. It is after submission of this report that the peer team visit and assess the institution from all its aspects.
A peer team inspected the premises and reviewed the academic facilities and infrastructural strengths. Based on the reports submitted by the peer teams, the grades were awarded.

Each department will be taken into account. The peer team held interaction with principal, management, member of faculty, present ‘batch’ students and staff of associated institutions.
