CONCLUDING REMARKS

This exercise is intended to make a self analysis of the quality development of the institution during the year. The perspective plan and implementation for every year is to be documented and analysed to get a cumulative index for the period of accreditation and reaccreditation. Any substantial changes / initiative in this direction is to be separately listed. The best practices in various areas can be listed as a separate annexure. The data will be used to create a quality profile based on the total score index arrived at and this would help to map the institutions' strengths and areas of improvement.

NAAC will provide feedback and a quality profile based on analysis of your inputs if you desire so.

Thank you for your participation.
