Structure & Mechanism of Internal quality Assurance Cell


Internal quality Assurance Cell


IQAC is constituted in every institution under the Chairmanship of the Head of the institution with heads of important academic and administrative units and a few teachers and a few distinguished educationists and representatives of local management and stakeholders.


In pursuance of its Action Plan for performance evaluation, assessment and accreditation and quality up-gradation of institutions of higher education, the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC), Bangalore proposes that every accredited institution should establish an Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) as a post-accreditation quality sustenance measure. Since quality enhancement is a continuous process, the IQAC will become a part of the institution’s system and work towards realisation of the goals of quality enhancement and sustenance. The prime task of the IQAC is to develop a system for conscious, consistent and catalytic improvement in the overall performance of institutions. For this, during the post-accreditation period, it will channelize all efforts and measures of the institution towards promoting its holistic academic excellence.

The work of the IQAC is the  first  step  towards  internalization  and  institutionalization  of  quality  enhancement initiatives. Its success depends upon the sense of belongingness and participation it can inculcate in all the

constituents of the institution. It will not be yet another hierarchical structure or a record keeping exercise   in  the  institution. It   will  be  a  facilitative  and  participative  voluntary  system/unit/organ of the institution. It has the potential to become a vehicle for ushering in quality enhancement by working  out planned   intervention ist strategies  to  remove  deficiencies  and  enhance  quality like the “Quality Circles”in industries.
