‘More that half of NIT programmes not accredited’

More than half of the programmes of NIT are not accredited with the National Board of Accreditation (NBA), the CAG has pointed out.



New Delhi: More than half of the programmes
of the elite National Institute of Technologies imparted
across the country are not accredited with the National Board
of Accreditation (NBA), the CAG has pointed out.

In its report tabled in Parliament today, the national
auditor said that of the 88 under graduate and 191 post
graduate courses in the institutes, 45 under-graduate
programmes and 137 PG programmes were not accredited with the
NBA.
"This indicated that the quality of education of these
courses could not be ensured on the basis of the criteria
fixed by the NBA," it said.

Referring to the five streams of civil engineering,
electronics and communication engineering, mechanical
engineering, chemical engineering and IT engineering, it said
admission of students remained much below the intake capacity
and above than that during some years.
"1.38 to 42.31 per cent seats in under-graduate
courses and 3.13 to 87 per cent seats in PG courses remained
vacant in some of the years."

In contrast, "they admitted students more than the
intake in the range of 0.83 per cent to 23.89 per cent in
under graduate courses and 3.30 to 116.67 per cent in PG
courses" in some years, the Comptroller and Auditor General
said.
