“Government is “confident” that the National
Accreditation Regulatory Authority for Higher Educational Institutions Bill,
which is in the parliament, will be passed in this session or by the end of the
year. 

The Bill seeks to maintain academic quality,
and makes it mandatory for every higher educational institution (other than
institutions engaged in agricultural education) to be accredited by an
independent accreditation agency”, said Kapil Sibal while inaugurating the
first World Summit of Accreditation organized by NBA (National Board of
Accreditation). 

He further added that, “The importance of the
accreditation of the institutes of higher education will also help corporate to
identify the quality people for their specialized interest. The most important
part is “self-assessment” and institutes should do regular “Introspection” on
improving their quality as they seek to embrace the global standard.” 

Dr Dinesh K Paliwal, Member Secretary, NBA
highlighted the global and technical changes in education system especially for
professional studies. He said that there has been an increase in
internationalization of students in higher education which is latest trend we
see today. 

More than 1000 delegates have gathered from
all over the world on the maiden summit on accreditation organised by NBA. The
Summit aims at bringing India amongst the world leaders of accreditation which
can make India’s journey in the world smoother in terms of educational and
professional areas.
