VIT College gets Grade ‘B’ accreditation from NAAC


Nagpur: VIT College, Nagpur is pleased to announce that the College has been graded ‘B’ by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC).

This accreditation is valid for five years.

NAAC is an autonomous body established by the University Grants Commission (UGC) of India to assess and accredit institutions of higher education in the country.

In the earlier system, NAAC graded the institutions for each key aspect under four categories, viz. A, B, C and D, denoting very good, good, satisfactory and unsatisfactory levels respectively based on their CGPA. For example, a college with a CGPA score between 3 to 4 would be graded A, and so on.

In the new system however, colleges are graded on a seven-point scale A++ (3.76 to 4.00 CGPA), A+ (3.51 – 3.75 CGPA), A (3.01 – 3.50), B++ (2.76 – 3.00 CGPA), B+(2.51 – 2.75 CGPA), B (2.51 – 2.75 CGPA), C(1.51 – 2.00 CGPA). Any institute getting a CGPA score equal to or below 1.50 will be marked as ‘not accredited’.

As per the latest accreditation, VIT received a cumulative grade B. VIT College offers Mtech, BE & Polytechnic courses.

Dr. Manish Bihade (Principal, VIT) said, “This is a very proud moment for us. We have set a benchmark for ourselves. This certainly attests that continuous hard work proves fruitful.”

Dr. Pooja Maheshwari (Secretary, VIT) along with Dr. G. S. Natrajan (Director, VIT) also appreciate the excellent work that is being done by the staff members of VIT in accomplishment of the documentation for NAAC peer committee.
