Assam ranks 1st and 3rd in percentage of NAAC accredited colleges and universities respectively

MUMBAI: Nearly 85% of the 34,852 colleges in the country have not gone through the mandatory assessment process by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC), and over one-third of the 642 universities (71%) remain unaccredited.

The lack of quality check in a majority of institutes of higher education has been revealed in the latest Deloitte report on the annual status of higher education in states and union territories. For Maharashtra, however, the situation is much better as it has the highest number of accredited colleges in the country, followed by Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. The state also has the distinction of most numbers of accredited universities, second only to Tamil Nadu.

Though Tamil Nadu has 27 accredited universities, the highest in numbers, percentage wise, it is next to Maharashtra.

According to the report, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu and Assam are the top three states in terms of percentage of universities accredited at 52, 46 and 44 respectively. Jharkhand, Haryana and Bihar are at the bottom with 8%, 14% and 15% respectively. Similarly, Assam, Punjab and Haryana are the top three states when it comes to percentage of colleges accredited at 67, 61 and 57 respectively, while Chhattisgarh, Andhra Pradesh and Bihar are the bottom three.



The University Grants Commission (UGC) has made it mandatory for all colleges and varsities to go in for accreditation for grants.

Rohin Kapoor, senior manager of Deloitte India, said the sheer number of institutes in the country makes it difficult for the agency to carry out assessment. "There are close to 35,000 institutes and 650 universities in the country. The numbers go up every year," said Kapoor.

"Since it is mandatory now, many colleges have been submitting their assessment reports. It will take time for the agency to process all. The government should allow private agencies to assist NAAC. The policies should encourage a public-private partnership model for evaluating institutes in the country," he said.

Kapoor added that the data used from the website NAAC (2011-12) was the latest from the government available for the study. Many colleges have gone for accreditation post 2011-12, but the number of new institutes has also jumped in the last three years. Around 570 colleges went in for accreditation in 2012, 687 in 2013 and 517 in 2014 till date.

H Devaraj, vice-chairman of UGC, said, "The UGC has sanctioned 25 new posts at NAAC, which is awaiting approval from the ministry of human resource development. Once that is done, the staff strength will go up to 50. The NAAC is also planning to set up six to seven regional centres that will be equipped to grant accreditation to colleges/universities. The increase in the number of staff will help clearing backlog and expedite the process." He predicted the number will improve in the next two years.

"Most of the unaided colleges affiliated to the Mumbai University are the usual defaulters as they do not have approved staff and their infrastructure is not in place," said M A Khan, registrar, Mumbai University. The most important parameter for accreditation is to have approved faculty on board, which institutes lack, he added. The MU has recently attached all the benefits granted to colleges to their accredited status. "We allow colleges to increase divisions, seats, or to set up a new course if they are accredited or have applied for re-accreditation," said Khan.

DU’s bid to attract Myanmar students

DIBRUGARH, Dec 5 – In a major bid to attract students from South East Asian countries to the North-east for meaningful academic collaboration, the Dibrugarh University recently created three free studentships for students from Myanmar to studying the Masters programme in Applied Geology.
A proposal submitted by the university for the establishment of a centre for Myanmar and South East Asian Studies at the Dibrugarh University is also under the consideration of the Ministry of External Affairs, Government of India.
It may be mentioned here that Gautam Mukhopadhyay, Indian Ambassador to Myanmar, visited the Dibrugarh University twice during which the Vice Chancellor of the University, Prof AK Buragohain stressed the relevance and significance of an academic engagement of the university with various issues common to the historical, socio-cultural and geo-political perspectives of the North-east and the greater South East Asian countries.

The Dibrugarh University, which is close to the international border with Myanmar, is expected to generate critical inputs for any policy initiative of the Government of India towards the meaningful implementation of the Look and Act East Policy.

Mukhopadhyay, in an e-mail to the Vice Chancellor, expressed his pleasure over the initiatives taken by the university and said that this was in line with the efforts of the Ministry of External Affairs to showcase and project the potential of the North-east of India as an education and training destination for students from Myanmar. He expressed the hope that this can be expanded to include other countries of the ASEAN and the BIMSTEC group of countries and deepen the education arm of the Look and Act East Policy of the country.

The Dibrugarh University will also collaborate with the Kasetsart University, Bangkok, for research and academic programmes. Prof Buragohain will shortly visit the Thailand capital to sign the collaboration pact.

Bombay IIT tutorials for varsities

A Staff Reporter
Guwahati, Aug. 30: IIT Bombay will help two universities - Dibrugarh University and Gauhati University - and around 40 colleges in Assam impart lessons on information and communication technology software to students.


Through its spoken tutorial project, IIT Bombay will provide audio-video tutorials free of cost to the institutions to teach open source software like Linux and Java.

IIT Bombay has made these tutorials available in all languages included in the Eighth Schedule of the Constitution. In Assam, the tutorials will also be available in Assamese and Bodo.


IIT officials told The Telegraph as they are not getting enough resource persons to translate the tutorials into Bodo, teaching material in the language is significantly low.

The state department of higher education has issued a circular to all colleges requesting them to cooperate with officials from IIT Bombay as and when they are approached for project implementation. The Union ministry of human resource development is sponsoring the project.

A college teacher said they would get the software in CD or will download it from an authorised website for the students. "This is a self-learning programme where the students will go through the audio-visual tutorials and learn about the software."

The two Assam universities have signed an MoU with IIT Bombay.

ISI to set up campus in Tezpur

Kolkata: Indian Statistical Institute (ISI) is preparing to set up a full-fledged campus at Tezpur in Assam to enhance research in the northeastern part of the country and assist in solving local problems, director Sanghamitra Bandyopadhyay said on Wednesday.

The campus will come up on 75 acres allotted by the Government of Assam at a cost of Rs 150 crore. According to Bandyopadhyay, the self-sufficient campus will become fully-operational in the next 4-5 years.
:cheers::cheers:

"We have a centre in Assam that operates from the campus of Tezpur University. After the full-fledged campus comes up, the agricultural and ecological research unit and physics and earth sciences division can carry out research there. This will not only enhance our capabilities but provide help to the local population by sorting out their problems. Ultimately, we shall contribute towards national development," the director, who is visiting Tezpur on Thursday to take stock of the situation said.

ISI already offers a post-graduate diploma course from Tezpur University. Many locals are getting enrolled to this course. Once the full-fledged campus comes up, the number of courses on offer will go up and youngsters in the northeastern will get better career options.

"We can offer courses in biological sciences and economic studies. This will result in development of the local region. The Centre has already allotted funds for development of the northeastern states and these will be utilized for the campus. Even now, our faculty members from Kolkata and elsewhere visit Tezpur to attend various training programmes. We want to consolidate our position in that region from Tezpur. My visit is aimed to take stock of the present situation there and ascertain how to strengthen our position there. One can expect some major construction work at Napam (in Tezpur) where the land has been allotted for the campus," Bandyopadhyay added.

Indian Institute of Management, Shillong that was set up in 2008 is already a great hit and students from the region have been inspired to go in for higher studies and seek admission there. The ISI campus will also be a great hit, authorities believe.

The post-graduate diploma course in Business Analytics that ISI, Kolkata, started recently with IIT, Kharagpur and IIM, Calcutta, has turned into a hit. The two-year-course allows students to study at the three campuses for six-months each. The last six-months is spent on project work. The course now has 54 students.

Electronics giant to train youths


Assam government official Rituraj Bora (left) and Samsung executive Deepak Bharadwaj exchange documents after signing the MoU as skill development and industries minister Chandra Mohan Patowary (centre) looks on at the ITI for Women in Guwahati on Thursday. Picture by UB Photos
Guwahati, Feb. 23: Electronics major Samsung today signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Assam skill development and entrepreneurship department to set up a centre here.

It will impart skill development training to youths to repair mobile phones, televisions and other gadgets.

"This will be our first skill centre in the Northeast and we plan to expand to other parts of the region gradually. We have decided to set up the centre here since it is difficult for youths to move out of the state for skill development courses. We hope to prepare the young boys and girls for opportunities locally," Deepak Bharadwaj, vice-president, strategy investment and corporate affairs, Samsung, said at a function here today.

The MoU was signed between Bharadwaj and Rituraj Bora, the director of Employment and Crafts Training Institute.

Samsung's foray into skill development sector received a pat from the Assam government which is looking for more partnerships with public and private companies for skill development and employment generation.

"We request companies to join our skill development mission as we can't provide government jobs to more than 15 lakh educated unemployed youths. Aspirants from upper middle and middle classes move out of the state for better courses but those from lower middle class or below poverty line come to our industrial training institutes. I want to request Bharadwaj to set up at least four such centres so that we can cater to youths not only here but across the state," skill development and industries minister Chandra Mohan Patowary said.


The state government had created the skill development and entrepreneurship department with an aim to accomplish the Centre's Skill India ambition.

Stating that the government would go for skill development in revolutionary mode, Patowary said, "We have decided to make it mandatory for the companies coming to invest in the state to set up skill development centres. This will help their business, too, as they will no longer have to send their products outside for servicing. In the process, our young boys and girls will also get jobs locally."

Patowary inaugurated two courses on industrial sewing machine operator and light motor vehicle driving. The two courses are being sponsored by the Guwahati Refinery of Indian Oil Corporation (IOC). Twenty economically disadvantaged youths each will be provided training in the courses during this financial year.

Executive director, Guwahati Refinery, Jogen Barpujari, said they have already sponsored 800 youths, including 450 girls, and provided skill development training since 2011.

Guwahati-based Kamala Bezboruah Memorial Trust today handed over cheques to 71 ITI students who topped their courses, at the function. The trust has been providing Rs 500 monthly stipend to ITI students since 2009.

Third IARI to be set up in Assam

The union cabinet on Wednesday gave its nod for setting up an Indian Agricultural Research Institute (IARI) in Assam at a cost of over Rs 155 crore to promote agri-education and achieve second green revolution in the North-Eastern region. The first IARI was set up in the national capital in 1967. The Modi government had announced plans to set up four such institutes in the Budget for 2014-15.
“The work to set up an IARI in Ranchi (Jharkhand) has commenced. The IARI-Assam was delayed as the previous government did not provide land. The current (Sarbananda) Sonowal government has allocated 587 acres of land for the institute,” union minister of power Piyush Goyal said. He also said that Rs 700-1,000 crore will be spend over the next seven to eight years for setting up IARI. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to attend the ceremony later this month where the work on setting up IARI-Assam will commence formally.
IARI will be set up in Dhemaji district in Assam. It has also approved 98 positions, an official statement said. The IARI-Assam would focus more on research activities and will teach 67 MSc students and 106 PhD students, Goyal said, adding that it will promote research in agriculture and benefit eight North-Eastern states.
“Development of North-Eastern region is a priority for the government and has the potential to bring second green revolution”, he said. IARI-Assam would work on the agrarian challenges and complexities of North-Eastern India in coordination with all existing central and state government research and development institutions and private sector enterprises, an official statement noted.
It will be an off-campus of IARI, New Delhi, and undertake integrated multi-disciplinary research through Schools of Crop Sciences, Natural Resource Management, and Animal Sciences and Fisheries, it added.

Regular classes at Rajiv Gandhi Petroleum Institute from September


SIVASAGAR, July 23 - Come September and the educational scenario in Assam will adorn a new chapter with the beginning of the regular classes for the first batch of 90 students at the national-level institute – the Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Petroleum Technology (RGIPT) on a 100- acre plot at Palasoni, Sivasagar.

Announcing this, Narayan Melang Konwar, DC, Sivasagar told mediapersons recently that Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal has taken special initiative to fulfil the long-standing dream of the people of Sivasagar following a stalemate halting the project since the then Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh and the then Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi laid the foundation stone on February 19, 2011. The Directorate of Technical Education, Assam has accorded permission to introduce Petroleum Engineering (30 seats), Chemical Engineering (30 seats) and Pipeline Engineering (30 seats) at the RGIPT Sivasagar campus from September 10 next.

Construction work of the temporary campus of the RGIPT began from January last and after some initial disturbances from some antisocial elements, work on the temporary administrative- cum-classroom building is progressing smoothly. Sivasagar Deputy Commissioner in a meeting held in his office told leading citizens that a monitoring public committee with members of the local society, senior citizens, organizations and administration will be constituted soon to supervise the progress of the project and coordinate with ONGC which had contributed over Rs 300 crore for implementing the project.

With the formal inauguration of classes at RGIPT along with other ongoing projects like the Assam Rajiv Gandhi Cooperative University and the ONGC Super Speciality Hospital, Sivasagar is all set to become an important centre for education and healthcare in Assam.

11 new colleges for Assam



Guwahati, Aug. 4: The Assam government will set up 11 more colleges in the name of BJP ideologue Deendayal Upadhyaya, raising the total number of colleges in his name in the state to 23.


Education minister Himanta Biswa Sarma announced the setting up of the 11 new colleges within a year at a programme organised today to distribute appointment letters to the principals, teachers and other employees of five model colleges set up in the name of Upadhyaya.

Of these five colleges, four have only science stream and one has commerce stream. Sarma said "when the principals of the colleges become confident", other streams would be added.

The admission process in these five model schools is over and classes will commence on September 1. Work to set up seven more model colleges in the name of Upadhyaya is on.


At present, the deputy commissioner is the chairman of a model college but he will be replaced with an academician after three years, Sarma said.

The Centre had selected 374 educationally backward districts across the country, including 12 in Assam, to set up model colleges. The Centre and the state government contribute equal amount of funds to set up these colleges.

Of the 11 colleges to be set up in the name of Upadhyaya, eight will be girls' colleges and set up in minority-dominated areas.

There has been opposition from several quarters against naming colleges in the name of Upadhyaya, arguing that he has no contribution to the state.

Instead, they demanded that the BJP government, which came to power with jati, mati, bheti as its election campaign, should name these colleges in the name of renowned personalities of the state.

Sarma said the Pandit Deendayal Upadhyaya Adarsha Mahavidalayas have set up a new trend in the history of setting up of educational institutions in the state.

"Earlier, all colleges were set up by communities. Later they were provincialised by the government. Communities were forced to set up colleges because of the government's failure to do so. The flip side of setting up of colleges by communities was that many colleges were set up unnecessarily and in a non-uniform way," he said.

"But this time the government has set up colleges which will start functioning with all the required infrastructure and staff," Sarma said, adding that from now on setting up of educational institutions would solely be done by the government.

He said the government would set up 11 more polytechnics across the state and a cultural college in Majuli this year.


Chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal, who handed over the appointment letters to the newly appointed teachers, requested them to work dedicatedly.
