Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC)

The IQAC was formed in December 2007, post accreditation of the college by the NAAC Peer Team. The IQAC was reconstituted in 2013 according to the guidelines laid down by the UGC in the XIIth Plan. The IQAC acts as a nodal agency of the HEI (Higher Education Institutions) for coordinating quality-related activities. Its primary concern is to provide quality enhancement and qualitative change in every sector of the academic, administrative and human resources by working out interventionist strategies to remove deficiencies and disseminate good practices. One of its functions is to interact with the SQAC (State Quality Assurance Cell) in the pre and post accreditation quality assessment, sustenance and enhancement endeavours.


Its composition is as follows: The Principal/Teacher-in-charge as the Chairperson, a senior faculty member nominated as the Coordinator, five senior teaching members and two external experts.

The benefit of IQAC is to ensure:

  • Heightened level of clarity and focus in institutional functioning towards quality enhancement
  • Internalization of the quality culture
  • Integration among the various activities of the institution and institutionalization of good practices
  • A dynamic system for quality changes in the institution
