It has come to the notice of NAAC that some agencies or consultancy firms are approaching higher education institutions with proposals to help in SSR preparations to be submitted to NAAC and also making various promises in the name of NAAC officials. It is hereby clarified that NAAC has not authorised any agents or consultants to undertake SSR/SAR preparations work. NAAC expects that SSR/SAR preparation is an important activity to be done by institution itself and SSR/SAR preparation cannot be outsourced. Concerns from the field are primarily about agents approaching teacher education colleges. Hence, institutions are advised to avoid entertaining such unauthorised agents. For any clarification relating to Assessment and Accreditation, institutions can write to Director, NAAC or the regional Co-ordinators in charge of regions concerned.concerned.

Director, NAAC
