As per the action plan of the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) for performance evaluation, accreditation and quality up gradation of higher education institutions, every accredited institution should establish an Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) as a post-accreditation quality sustenance measure.

For this, during the post-accreditation period, IQAC will channelize all efforts and measures of the institution towards promoting its holistic academic excellence.
