The Supreme Court has recently asked the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) to put the gradation of universities in the public domain within three days.
A bench comprising Justices Dipak Misra and Shiva Kirti Singh was informed by Additional Solicitor General Maninder Singh that the NAAC has considered several aspects including self-appraisal report of these universities and put the information regarding their gradation on the website, as per media report.
"Let us know the NAAC grading. If someone is left out and aggrieved, then we will ask Union of India, UGC and the NAAC to look into it," the bench said.
The court even asked universities earlier to submit their self-appraisal report to NAAC so that they can awarded grades accordingly. NAAC was given three months’ time to decide on the issue of accreditation and grades of the 121 deemed universities.
"The National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) shall not insist for the compliance of the 2010 regulations. The Universities are directed to submit the self-appraisal report within ten days," it had then said and made it clear that any decision of the NAAC would be subject to the outcome of a PIL questioning the procedure of granting recognition to such universities.
