IQAC

Internal Quality Assessment Cell

IQAC

National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC), Bangalore proposed that every accredited institution should establish an Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) as a quality sustenance measure. Since quality enhancement is a continuous process, the IQAC is a part of the institution’s system and works towards the realisation of the goals of quality enhancement and sustenance.
