In a surprising event, the Kolhan University (KU) of Chaibasa, Jamshedpur gets recognised by the National Accreditation and Assessment Council (NAAC) with a ‘C’ grade by having 1.6 GPA (Grade Point Average). The KU, started in 2009 is one of the first universities to get a grading by NAAC within 6 years of its foundation.
Moreover, Jamshedpur Co-operative College has been awarded ‘B’ grade with 2.36 CGPA (Cumulative Grade Point Average) by the Council.
Along with the grading, a comprehensive report reflecting all sides of the institutions of Higher education was also submitted by NAAC. Both the university and the college were visited by the NAAC team to bring out their positive points as well as shortcomings .
NAAC team praised the university authorities for good governance. The team said that work done in teaching, learning, research and basic infrastructure will benefit in the development of the university.
However, according to NAAC, the scarcity of teachers and no fresh appointments in the university is the biggest drawback. The report made it clear that no appointment of teachers by JPSC was the reason behind shortage of local teachers. Apart from this, the report showed lack of sports ground, central library, hostel, staff quarter, textbooks etc in the university.
