According to a fresh Supreme Court controlling, the destiny of 15 colleges in Tamil Nadu boycotted by the University Grants Commission (UGC) will be disclosed within a period of two weeks. The National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) will choose whether affirmations can proceed in these 15 colleges in the state, which are among 44 organizations evaluated by UGC in 2009 as unfit to operate as colleges. UGC sources said the time allotment accessible would imply that NAAC can just do a status survey taking into account accessible records and can't make site assessments.
In 2009, UGC's Tandon council, in the wake of surveying 126 colleges, had appraised 38 colleges the nation over as fitting in with classification "An" as they had performed well. Forty-four colleges fell in the "B" classification demonstrating that there were a few inadequacies and could be enhanced, while the remaining 44 were recorded under "C" class terming them unfit to be called esteemed to be colleges.
After the report, three colleges surrendered their esteemed status to UGC, while the staying declined to acknowledge the proposals. In the mean time, the colleges tested the Tandon board of trustees suggestion in court.
Then, the Tandon board of trustees report was checked on by the Officers' panel in 2011, and after that by UGC. The UGC expelled as many as 34 colleges in 2014 and warned the other seven, including two from TN, that it would issue them one year to roll out important improvements to meet the standards for a considered to be college. In October a year ago, TOI reported that the Union service for human asset improvement felt that the UGC choice to expel 34 colleges from the boycott was unreasonable as it would imply that UGC was bargaining on quality.
Specialists blame the two-week period given for audit. "A two-week due date for NAAC to authorize "C" classification regarded colleges will bring about further bends as the NAAC methodology includes a deliberate methodology. It takes somewhere around three and six months for NAAC to survey a college," said S Vaidhyasubramaniam, dignitary, arranging and improvement, Sastra University. Vaidhyasubrmaniam said, "An approach to determine this six-year long impasse is to permit NAAC to certify all A,B and C classification esteemed colleges and MHRD arrangement choices be taken in view of NAAC's characterization than on Tandon board's subjective order,".
A senior teacher from Karnataka, who is frequently on the NAAC investigating council board for colleges, likewise acknowledged that two weeks was too short a period for leading a survey. "NAAC is shortly considering the request. Likewise SC has said that NAAC may do the audit taking into account the benefits of the college," he said.
